If you have bought the Qosmio performance notebook you have probably run into a similar problem as me if you use it for gaming purposes. Toshiba has not released a new driver for the graphics card since the laptop came out! I've done what I feel is a significant amount of research (2+ hours) on the forums and the best I saw was someone saying that the 285.62 Nvidia Driver worked with the X505-Q887's 360m graphics card. Does anyone know of a more recent driver that will work with the tweaked drivers toshiba gives us? Preferably without the sleep/overheating/BSOD issues. If noone does can anyone confirm that the 285.62 driver works without problems? I can no longer play Diablo/Starcraft/WoW on even good graphics, everything must be turned to low, and I was once able to run graphics on Ultra. Thank you for your time all and I look forward to seeing the communitys thoughts!

How long has it been since the system was serviced, to have fresh thermal paste applied to the CPU and GPU? From your mention of overheating and BSOD issues, I would suspect that heat is a bigger issue. I usually have to clean the CPU and GPU surface and apply fresh arctic silver about once a year to keep temps low, and keep the system running smoothly.

It hasn't been serviced outside of the minor upgrades and clean up I've done to it myself, but I may not have said what I mean clearly. The forums I have seen about users downloading drivers that are not provided by toshiba have reported issues such as overheating and BSOD. My computer is operating fantastic other than I can no longer use it with the games I bought it for. I have regularly cleaned out the vent with canned-air and I have carefully cleaned out the keyboard of hair, dust, other things. My baby's in great shape except for the graphics
