Nvidia 9700m, random black screen caused by performance mode.


Here is the issue I am having, I am running on ubuntu 10.04 and using the latest nvidia driver. What I experience is a random black screen, my monitor goes dead and won't turn back on till I hardboot. I had this issue on windows and solved it by downloading rivatuner and telling it to force my 9700m into staying in 3d performance mode at all times. I know it has nothing to do with temps or anything like that. All I need to know is how I can duplicate what I did with rivatuner on windows. I tried forcing the powermizer to stay at the max performance level, but it did not solve the issue.

Maybe enable 'coolbits' in xorg.conf, then turn overclocking on, and set the clocks manually.
