Lenovo W500

All,

I recently purchased a Lenovo W500 for use with Solidworks.

When it arrived I immediately removed Vista and got XP up and going.

It ws then that I discoverd my FireGL V5700 was being a identifed as a HD3650 which is not a workstation card.

I have been on the phone a lot with Lenovo since and have determined that the W500 has the correct card installed but the driver is not working correctly.

As a result SW2009 is very unstable, it bluescreens within minutes.

Lenovo has verbally told me they are working on a solution but will not commit anything in writing.

You can read more details here.
