No. My laptop is not ice-cold. It is just that the screen begins to freeze up by itself. This despite me doing the following:
- Updating the driver to the latest working one, which just came out a few days ago.
- Shutting off the PCI Power Management thing as recommended by several people on forums.
- Render a balanced 3D output through the nVidia Control Panel.
However, with each successive step, the severity of the freezing lessen. As a measure, I decided to switch of the Aero feature as well. Hopefully this helps.
In any case, this warrants another visit to the support center to get the graphics card checked.
No thanks to this, I spent precious hours getting this out of my way.
