Nvidia 310M problem HELP!

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

I have a Lenovo G460 running 10.8 with following configuration:

Intel core i5 520M

500gb hdd

4 gig ram

nvidia 310m 512mb

 

Problem is that the system freezes after a couple of minutes after boot. I looked up the system log and found this:
