View Full Version : Graphics Problem out of the box

09-23-2012, 08:51 PM
I just purchased a G74SX laptop. Still only setting up , using a web browser and doing system updates.
graphics card is a Geforce GTX 560M

Every 30 - 60 seconds the screen will flash black and I get an error saying that

"Display Driver stopped responding and has recovered"
Display driver NVIDIA Windows Kernel Mode driver, Version 306.23 stopped responding and has successfully recovered

I thought it may have just been old drivers so I uploaded to the latest drivers but it still does it.
It seems to happen mostly when I have a browser open.

I haven't even installed a game or played a video yet to even test the card and its playing up.

Time to pack it up and send it back for replacement or is their a known fix?

Thanks for the help

Try the older drivers from ASUS. Reboot into Safe Mode to uninstall the current drivers, and reboot into Safe Mode again to install the ASUS drivers. If that doesn't work, return it. Those problems shouldn't occur.
