Most laptops have on board graphics, built into the motherboard, some have a separate graphics card like yours. Laptops with a separate graphics card may or may not have the on board graphics option.
On a desktop this is done by changing the monitor cable to a different VGA port.
Check your BIOS for an option to switch the two.

To confirm it's not the screen having problems, connect it to an external monitor.

How are you switching to the standard VGA display driver?

Don't let this post distract you from the course you're following.

I'll offer some suggestions and then step back. You can read the information to see if it applies and try FurMark to stress your graphics.

Clean your fans - cooling can cause the TDRs / DSODs

I am not too sure if my motherboard has another on board graphics on top of the separate graphics card that my laptop has. However, I never had an option to select from 2 different graphics cards, not even from BIOS.

Currently to switch to the standard VGA display driver, all I needed to do was to roll-back driver for GeForce Go 7700 hardware on the Device Manager page. However BSOD will always occur when I update the hardware with nvidia drivers and try to boot normally into windows.

Please use the Easy specs link in my sig to update your SF information - thanks. I had to read too many posts to find your system information. Yeah, i know it was in post#1, but putting it in your profile here on SF makes it easy to find.

Thanks.

Nvidia Optimus technology running 3D programs won't intelligent switch from Intel VGA

Whenever I have driver issues, I go back to the mfrs released drivers. They might not be the newest (an understatement), but they're the ones the mfr shipped the box with. Then I take tiny steps forward one device at a time until I'm successful or an issues arises (a rollback solves that).

So, here's what I would do if the machine were my own.
Completely uninstall Nvidia Geforce - remove software if prompted
Install the Vista 32 bit driver from Asus. (let compatibility solve any issue that might crop up)
Test machine stability
after a while if I felt that I needed to, I'd see what could be gained by updating the driver, otherwise, I'd run back level.


Best of luck what ever you decide.

Agree with Slartybart, that's the best way to proceed. You'll find out which drivers are causing problems.

You know the drill by now, right?

Please post the SF BSOD information. Wait until someone looks at it before making any other changes, ok?

So you have the Asus VGA driver Version V7.15.10.9802 installed - right?

I checked Nvidia again and it only gave me v179 when i entered GeForce GO 7700.

What does Nvidia graphics auto detect tell you?
