    Please disregard. I had forgotten I had previously installed the nvidia driver 280 manually, re-installing it using the run file fixed the missing opengl problem. Sorry for the confusion!

    Same here, both on Linux Mint 10 and Linux Mint 8. Memtest ran ok this time with only 2gb, but I've already suffered another two lock-ups requiring a hard reboot. Who wants some humble pie? ;-)
