I've got quite strange behavior of Nvidia Q1000M video card:
1) I plug in external monitor (DisplayPort / DVI / VGA)
2) Monitor starts fine, showing some picture
3) After several minutes the picture freezes. X is fine, apps are running, laptop screen is fine.
4) If I unplug the cord or disable monitor in settings, all windows from frozen external monitor move to laptop one.
External monitor can run fine for several minutes, or might freeze after 1 minute or so.
Please, can you help in troubleshooting this?
Googling or skimming through Xorg.0.log did not help
Laptop: Lenovo ThinkPad W520 (Descrete graphics enabled)
Video card: Nvidia Q1000M
Drivers: proprietary, version 313.26-2
Xorg-server version: 1.14.0-2
Thank you all in advance for your time and assistance.

Sure, will do next time (and hopefully, will not need it). Sorry for the inconvenience, and thanks for effort.
