Problem with Thinkpad T420 and FC15

Hi *,

I am "new" in Fedora Core 15.
To be honest, I have been using FC from 1 to 6, then jump to Mac,
and now I am bakc

In general FC 15 (X86_64) works very well with T420, with minor problems.
The most bizarre is the the nVidia 4200M that is not working at all.
It runs well on Intel chip, however, I have not yet managed to make
nvidia to play or when it seems that something goes on
it goes back to fallback mode.

Any idea on that issue is welcome?
If you have any solution I would appreciate if you could share it.

Hi again

Problem solved without taking advantage of OPTIMUS,
but it works

I have changed it through BIOS by de-activating the OPTIMUS option.

sorry for the disturbance
