Interesting, I just went through the same experience on my Alienware (I have the NVidia 335M, 2gb ram as well). I just re-installed an OS. The problem with me was two fold:
- First, I didn't have the latest drivers
- Secondly, my NVidia driver / tool suggests which applications should use onboard video vs. the NVidia video. Once I fixed it so all applications used NVidia, this problem went away.
Hope this helps-
