Possible Driver Solution for 9650M GT in ASUS notebook
  1 / 3    
Since 185.82, none of the nVidia official notebook release could work with 9650M GT in ASUS notebook.
These drivers would cause flickering around the desktop and crash the whole system eventually.

To narrow the problem, the 9650M GT in my ASUS notebook has this device id:
PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_064C&SUBSYS_19121043

I happened to open the nvam.inf in last working driver 185.70WHQL provided by ASUS, and found a line of commentary:
; "This Version is with regkey setting to enable NonContiguousSVM"

So I decide to give this a try.
1. Download 186.03 WHQL notebook set for windows 7
2. find the device id in nvam.inf
3. find [nv_commonBase_addreg] section
4. add
[code]HKLM,"System\CurrentControlSet\Services\nvlddmkm",EnableNonContiguousSVM,%REG_DWORD%,1[/code]
5. Save the inf and run setup.

Now I'm running smoothly with 186.03. I hope more people could confirm this. Thanks:thumbup:

Hi! Where we add the code? In continuation of [nv_commonBase_addreg] or below it ? Works in Vista ? Thanks !

Yes it works in Vista too, I first tried this solution in Vista x64.
Just add the code between the lines in [nv_commonBase_addreg] section.

Hey,
I just tried it on Vista 32bit, but it doesn't work for me...had a system crash!

I'll try this ASAP.
I just wish NVIDIA or Asus would release proper drivers. This issue happens to every single person using an M70vn (and possibly other notebooks), so it's easily reproduced.

I have the same flicker and crashing problem in Vista 32 bit and Fedora 11 Linux x86_64. I have tested this with the 185.xx and 190.xx drivers. My laptop is an Asus n80 with the 9650M GT video card. Device id is "064c (Rev a1)"

The 180.60 driver works in Linux and Vista.

I found this forum topic after doing a Windows Update yesterday and having the flickering/driver resetting problems on my ASUS M70VN with the 9650M GT chipset. I tried the Win 7 solution recommened here and it still didn't fix my problem. I still had flickering and crashes of the driver. This is on Win Vista 64 Bit. I reverted to the 179.48 driver set driver version 7.15.11.7948
and things are back to normal. I've also submitted my comments on the driver set back to NVIDIA. It amazes me that they could go through a deliver cycle, WQHL and deploy via Windows Update with these kinds of quality issues.

I have the same issue with the 9650M GT on my Rock Pegasus 520 with Windows 7. The problem first reared its head while running the Windows 7 RC last week, when I installed driver version 186.31 via Windows Update. After encountering the issues mentioned above I reverted back to the previous version and everything was fine, until I came to install Windows 7 RTM today and the 186.31 drivers were again installed by Windows Update. Any newer version of the drivers also seems to cause problems.

Will give 179.48 a try as mentioned above.

Any update on that issue ? Nvidia continue to release new mobile drivers, but no update, so I will try again with the package 186.81 and see if the problem is fixed ( I m afraid it won't... )

I've had the same exact problems with my ASUS PRO72Vn and even Asus suggested to RMA it at some point. I am rather sure though that it is no issue with the hardware or the operationsystem. I've tried to narrow it down and this is what i found: First of all, none of the Nvidia or Asus realeases of any 18X.XX drivers lead to a stable system. It either crashes the whole system, freezes or simply restarts the Nvidiadrivers ever 2 minutes with a flickering screen. if you want a MS WHQL Certified Driver your best shot is the ASUS release of 179.88 as dowloadable on [url="http://forums.laptopvideo2go.com/topic/24487-v17988-windows-vista-64bit-asus/"]http://forums.laptopvideo2go.com/topic/244...sta-64bit-asus/[/url]. I only found one 18X.XX driver that is now running on my laptop and its being stable for 2 days. It is a modified driver by DOX [url="http://forums.laptopvideo2go.com/topic/23484-forceware-182-46/"]http://forums.laptopvideo2go.com/topic/234...rceware-182-46/[/url]. I have tried his modified drivers of higher Versions but unfortuantly this is the only one which works. All the drivers mention are of course used on your own risk. I only tested them on Vista Ultimate 64bit and Windows 7 Enterprise 64Bit.

Glad if this helps a little till we get a working mobile version of 19X.XX drivers *fingerscrossed*

Seems like this problem is dealt with PowerMizer.
Adding option NVreg_RegistryDwords="PerfLevelSrc=0x2222" to nvidia module parameter like this
modprobe nvidia NVreg_RegistryDwords="PerfLevelSrc=0x2222"
solves problem under Linux. Tested on ASUS M50Vn with 190.32 Beta Linux drivers.
But then PowerMizer works only in Maximum performance mode.
