View Full Version : Windows 8 Blue Screen when external monitor attached

04-17-2013, 12:56 AM
I've tried searching, but can't find this in the forum - so please forgive me if this is a dead horse. I have a friend with a G55VW that came with Windows 8, and every time he plugged it into the projector using the external VGA port, his machine would blue screen. I just tried it today for the first time with my G55VW that came with Windows 7, which I upgraded to Windows 8 Pro. As soon as I hit the Window-P combination to bring up the external display charm, it blue screened.

Now, this only happens with the VGA port. I just tested the HDMI as I was writing this to verify, and it works just fine. I'm running driver 314.07 on my machine, I'm not sure which version he has.

Anybody run into this issue and find a solution?

how is your VGA port connect to other monitor withour projector, is it same blue screen? i think you will install new vga and atk driver.
