I don't think you have anything to worry about - this bug only seems to affect mobile GPU (i.e. Go card) users.

Not only mobile GPU/CPU! And desktops too ...

I too have this problem on Geforce Go 7400 (G72M) with 169.09. I never get unrecoverable lockups (even with older driver versions), just 5-10 second freezes. It appears to occur during a spike in GPU activity, most often when scrolling a webpage with compiz enabled for instance. I get the same Xid's as other people have:

Code:
 NVRM: Xid (0001:00): 6, PE0000 0464 15ceeafe 0000f8ac 00000000 00ffffff
 NVRM: Xid (0001:00): 36,  L1 -> L0
The bug report would be much the same as everyone elses, so I wont bother attaching it (unless requested). I've checked everything in the "stability issues" and the other sticky threads too, but to no avail.

Rgds,
-Kevin

it would be really nice to hear some news from NVIDIA on this. This issue seems to concern a lot of people (and both my laptops !)

I would like to join the chorus of folks here experience lockups with compiz on a Geforce GO 7400. Machine is a Dell XPS M1210.

Turn compiz off -- I could run for days without issue. With it on, I usually can't get through 4 hours.

Running Ubuntu 7.10 with the previous driver and now with 169.07 -- both lock up. Tried upgrading my kernel to 2.6.24-7 -- no difference.

Will try the hack previous suggested and report back.

Just to let you know, the PerfLevelSrc hack seems to work on my Geforce Go 7400. I've set it to 0x3322 instead of 0x2222 to enable powermizer when on battery power so as not to kill my battery life. It only seems to raise my GPU core temperature by about 1-2C during normal usage, but I reckon this is highly dependent on your machine/card configuration.

Thanks kevykev -- I am trying that right now. I did however notice that when I do a "cat /proc/driver/nvidia/registry" command, the results show the Mobile: 1, but not the 0x2222 value for PerfLevelSrc. Is this normal? Here's the results:

Code:
EnableVia4x: 0
EnableALiAGP: 0
NvAGP: 3
ReqAGPRate: 15
EnableAGPSBA: 0
EnableAGPFW: 0
Mobile: 1
ResmanDebugLevel: 4294967295
RmLogonRC: 1
ModifyDeviceFiles: 1
DeviceFileUID: 0
DeviceFileGID: 0
DeviceFileMode: 438
RemapLimit: 0
UseCPA: 4294967295
UseVBios: 1
RMEdgeIntrCheck: 1

Yup, that's normal. You can check if the workaround is active by looking the nvidia-settings application, under PowerMizer: The performance level and mode should be always at their highest setting.

I did and indeed freq is set to max. I am no halfway into my second day with compiz on and no freezing. It is a world's record and I can't thank everyone here enough!

Default Re: 169.07 BUG: The 7 series multi core bug still exsists.

Hi All,

I'm using the 169.09 drivers on a 6800GT Ultra card in CentOS linux. I've had some issues similar to what is being discussed here and wanted to try the "PerfLevelSrc=0x2222" option listed here. I put the line

options nvidia NVreg_RegistryDwords="PerfLevelSrc=0x2222"

in my /etc/modprobe.conf file but, when I run the nvidia-settings tool and look under PowerMizer, I notice that Performance level is 0 and performance mode is "Desktop" (unless I run glxgears, then it goes to "Maximum Performance" although the performance level stays at 0). My GPU Clock frequency seems always to stay at 370 Mhz and the Memory clock at 1000 Mhz. I tried the NVreg_Mobile=1 in the same file and that seemed to make a difference (Power source went from "AC" to "Battery") so it is reading the file. Has anyone had any trouble getting the "PerfLevelSrc=0x2222" option to register? (or have any suggestions on what could be the problem?)

Thank you.
