I have problem on my dell laptop e6410 with internal screen since update to 313.18 and 310.32.
On 313.09 and 310.19 everything was ok.
Screen flickering like on a very low refresh but xrandr show 60 Hz.
Flickering only internal screen. External screen via DisplayPort is ok.
How to reproduce:
-> After update drivers I reboot system (kernel 3.7.4).
Internal screen is ok.
-> When I reboot system and plug in external monitor I enable second screen via xrandr command or nvidia-settings. I used option TwinView and Separate X server too.
-> external screen is ok, internal screen flickering.
disable and enable internal screen
->still that same.
reboot computer to bios or windows
-> screen still flickering. (windows show 60Hz)
disable computer, remove main battery and from mainboard
-> screen still flickering.
Now I’m calling to service … ;) They said me that I should try use old drivers.
so, installing 310.19
-> still flickering
enable external screen, disable internal screen, enable internal screen,
-> everything is ok.
Please explain me what drivers do because I cant understand it.
PS. When I switch on 310.32 between screens Xorg randomly crash.
