    When did this issue began?

    It should find the GPU automatically on windows screen (on the windows task-bar). Try going into device manager and scan for hardware changes, it should able to install the GPU adapter.

    This is the drivers for your OS:
    http://www.nvidia.com/object/win8-wi...ql-driver.html

    Well we can't install drivers yet, until it's on device manager. Try going into safemode and see if you can see the adapter on device manager.

    800x600 to 1280x1024 are standard VESA modes that Windows can drive directly. It is odd that the card does not appear in device manager and yet stuff is being displayed. My bet is on a bad driver installation/removal. If there were hardware problems, Windows wouldn't be able to drive the screen at any resolution.
    I am disturbed because I cannot break my system...found out there were others trying to cope! We have a support group on here, if your system will not break, please join!

    When did the problem start? it is strange, that is not showing any adapters.

    Is there anything on the device manager with a yellow explanation mark?.
    If you just bought the laptop, try to replace it.

    This error is displayed when you attempt to install the Desktop version of the NVIDIA driver to a laptop. You need the Mobile version of the NVIDIA driver.

    Have you just bought your G53, or have you just done a fresh Windows OS install?
    From your description, it also seem to me like your G53 doesn't have any nVidia driver installed.
    As what the others have suggested, install the appropriate notebook driver.
    For the latest notebook driver (306.23 WHQL), follow the link given by PlaneName in post #2.
