View Full Version : Help with Display driver

09-18-2013, 12:30 PM

I have had the G53S laptop for a few years now, and have recently updated to the latest GeForce 320.49 driver, and it ran smoothly for a few days, however recently I've been getting pink lines across my screen, regardless of what program I am running at the time. I've reinstalled the driver to make sure there wasn't a problem with the first installation of it, to no avail. I have done a bit of research and it suggests that the display driver may be at fault, don't know whether the driver update for GeForce had any part to play in this or not.

A more recent development has been getting a blue screen when trying to log in, saying that a driver has tried to corrupt the kernel and to restart the laptop. I am able to start in safe mode, but not safe mode with networking, I am currently logged in using the Directory Services Restore mode, and I have had the pink lines, but not as frequently, is this a driver issue or simply a bad connection on the motherboard between the video card and the screen?

Any help would be greatly appreciated, if you need any more information about the laptop I'll be happy to supply that.

Did you try going back to 314.22? It's unlikely that the cause is hardware if 320 series haven't screwed up your PC.

Thanks for the quick response,

I went back to 314.22 and that didn't fix it, I am currently using the recommended version from the Asus website, and I've had no troubles since, but I'm not sure whether that's because the issue has been sorted, or if it' just laying in wait.

Odd. It shouldn't be an issue, since I run the latest nVidia drivers without any problems. One thing that might happen is the driver settings might be messed up, maybe you could update the nVidia drivers while preserving all settings? There is an option in the installer to do that.

I'll give that a shot and see what happens.

I haven't had any further issues with the laptop screen/pink lines, not sure how to close this thread, but thanks to everyone for their help on this.
