Default Geforce Go 7600, random freezes/lockups

I have experienced quite a few freezes with this card. I can't really reproduce them as they seem random when they occur (when I am using graphical applications). They are all the same: Screen freezes and the display corrups with vertical bars. The bars look like they have been "carved" into the screen, they are kind of "brighter" than the rest of the screen.
(On erlier drivers the whole screen was totally corrupted and did not show any remains of X)
The last time this happend was this night when I was watching DVD in mplayer.

When the screen freezes, the sound corrups and I am unable to ssh into the machine.

It's a zepto znote 6214w laptop running the latest drivers.

Any help is appreciated.

I have a few questions:
0) Does this reproduce if you boot with the noapic and/or acpi=off kernel parameters?
1) Have you verified that you're using the latest BIOS?

Thanks,
Lonni

I have been booting with noapic and have so far not been able to repoduce it (when I forgot noapic it happend again), I have not been experimenting further.

And I am running the latest bios.

If booting with noapic seems to resolve the problem, then you are likely hitting a BIOS bug.

Thanks,
