Driver 520.56.06 crashes after a few minutes of use

I’m currently using the 520.56.06 driver and after a few minutes of use the driver crashes. If I start the nvidia settings, the following message pops up:

ERROR: An internal driver error occurred

(nvidia-settings:8696): GLib-GObject-CRITICAL **: 17:19:31.709: g_object_unref: assertion 'G_IS_OBJECT (object)' failed

** (nvidia-settings:8696): CRITICAL **: 17:19:31.710: ctk_powermode_new: assertion '(ctrl_target != NULL) && (ctrl_target->h != NULL)' failed

My notebook has a Quadro P520 card and the error happens in the offload mode. In the nvidia mode it randomly freezes. What I also noticed is that it does not come back after suspend. The suspend, resume and hibernate scripts are enabled.

inxi -G has the following output

  Device-1: Intel CometLake-U GT2 [UHD Graphics] driver: i915 v: kernel

It occurred in X11 as well, for it would not really matter switching from Wayland to it.
The debug report is attached, and I appreciate any help.

You’re getting an Xid 79, gpu is list. Since it’s a notebook, it’s most likely broken. Please check your warranty.

Thank you very much for your prompt reply.

After further investigation, I can rule out a hardware defect. I did various tests on Windows, and it worked fine.

Under Linux it now also works, but only in the Nvidia mode with the PowerMizer settings set to “Prefer Maximum Performance”. I assume in the other modes, the card gets too little power and then crashes.
Is there some way to adapt the offload setting? The maximum performance mode is really bothering me, since the fans always run very loudly, which is quite disturbing.

Please check for a bios update, if that doesn’t help try setting kernel parameter

Thank you very much. After an extensive testing period, I can confirm that it is working.
The bios update enabled the PowerMizer options, where I need to set anything else than Adaptive. Otherwise, I get the Xid 79. The same is for Wayland, there it also crashes with Xid 79. I assume it is because in Wayland, the PowerMizer options are not visible. The errors are still there in the latest driver version.

I must confess that I do not know if such a specific setting is usual.
