I've recently received said notebook as a gift. Currently it's running Kubuntu 9.10, however Wine just doesn't seem to work - any aplication I try to run on it gives an error message 'The program has encountered a serious problem and needs to close', whether it's a game, WinRar or an installer. In fact the only .exe files that work are the ones included in wine (notepad, gecko etc).

Here's some notebook data:
Intel® Core™2 Duo Processor T6500,2MB L2 cache, 2.10GHz, 800MHz FSB
Mobile Intel® PM45 Express
4GB (2/2) DDR3 1066 SDRAM
250GB hard drive
NVIDIA® GeForce® GT 240M graphics

What I tried so far was:
Different NVidia driver versions (180.xx, 185.xx, 190.xx)
Wine 1.1.31, 1.1.37, 1.1.38

Thanks for any answers
