OS X Lion Ships With Faulty NVidia Drivers - Slashdot

I am now positive this is the issue that is causing my notebook to crash so frequently it is barely usable. Any known fixes or expected updates? This seems like somewhat of a large deal to slip through the cracks before the release of Lion.

If what you posted from Slashdot has any validity, the solution is to downgrade your MBP to Snow Leopard and wait until Apple fixes the problem with an update. My understanding is that 10.7.2 is undergoing testing right now and should be released before too long. I don't know though that the problem you sited is addressed in the update.

I was on Lion for about a month when one of the updates crashed my MBP. I tried everything to get it back including loading Snow Leopard back on. When tech support couldn't help, I took it to the Apple store and they replaced the graphics board under a special warranty with nVidia (my MBP is 3.5 yrs old). I suspect it was a bad driver issue but hey, if they want to replace my board free, far be it from me to correct the experts.

Apple is such a fantastic company when it comes to both product and customer service.
