For a few days now the performance level on powermizer has been stuck on the highest level (3).
Note; all of the drivers I’ve tested have been installed via Software Sources.
Asus ROG laptop G75VW
GeForce gtx 670m 3gb
Linux mint 14 Cinnamon x64
What I have tried:
A clean re-install of linux mint 14
All the different Nvidia drivers; current, 304 experimental, 310 experimental and 313 experimental
All with the respective Nvidia-settings version
Powertop, laptopmode tools, pm-utils; tried every possible powersaving setting I have found. With or without AC power plugged in.
All of the above in different order and combinations twice (before formatting and after reinstalling)
I have also flashed my bios to the newest version. All settings in BIOS are default, and have been, since I bought it. Powermizer have worked previously.
More details on my problem:
After I first installed linux mint 14 on this laptop for the first time (Been using ubuntu/mint for years on my desktop) about 2-3 weeks ago, powermizer was working perfectly. At that time I used the experimental 310 driver.
I think the problem started after an update to some packages from software updater. I don’t know if this is related in any way though.
My gpu is now constantly at 65-69 degrees C. Is this dangerous?
I think my problem is the same as this reported bug: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/nvidia-graphics-drivers/+bug/1096155
He have created a topic on this forum before, but seeing no helpful responses and the fact that my problem might not be the same, I chose to create a new topic.
If there are any piece of information I’ve neglected to include, please say so, and I will happily provide it =)
Thanks in advance for any help!
EDIT: Added linux install version under “My system”.
EDIT 2: Fixed typos.
