Hi there,

I have a W500 laptop and i had a problem with the Intel GMA video card.
When i switch to energy saving mode the screen, the texts, pictures randomly interflow.
In performance mode there isnt any problem.

Here is a print screen:

I use the newest lenovo switchable driver (2011.11.27, 8.792.5.1)

What would be the problem?

Robert

this should help: http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/detail. ... selected=5

i had the problem all the time with my hp tm2 (same intel graphics, and ATI dedicated graphics), and i don't think it ever happened on my W500 but i think i've always had VT-d disabled.
