I guessed this was the problem on the LCD, but I didn't have free time to bring it to the Asus Service Center. And then, 4 -5 days later, when I was watching video on Youtube by FireFox, the video suddenly stopped for 1 or 2 seconds and went on, this phenomenon kept repeating, I thought my FF crash so I restart the laptop. But this problem appeared again. Then, I closed FF, open Chrome and IE, but it became worse, there were pieces of gray color which were flashing all over the screen, then the screen turned off, and turned on again, with this pop-up showed up:

I did try to reinstall the graphic driver, but nothing was fixed. Now, as I'm typing this, my laptop still can work, but it keeps freezing for 1 or 2 seconds and then works again, but I notice that when it's freezing the "Intel Turbo Boost Technology Monitor" goes up.

So, is this GPU problem? :( I need your advices.
