I have an Asus UL80Jt
laptop and I want to install a new driver
for my graphics card because some of the games that I play were lagging extremely badly. The graphics card I have is a Nvidia GeForce 310m
. This is what I've tried so far:
- I downloaded the newest driver from Asus.com for my specific computer and installed it. When I went to restart my computer, I got the starting Windows screen and then it just went black and I let it sit for 20 minutes and still nothing. So I held the power until it turned off and then rebooted, hit f8 and then did "last known good configuration" since the black screen problem happened every time I tried to restart.
- Since that driver download didn't work, I tried two or three different drivers
from the Nvidia website (Versions 306.23 and 280.26). They all produced the same result as the one I downloaded from Asus.
- The last thing I did was uninstall the current driver from Device Manager and then attempted to reinstall the last driver that I tried (280.26). When I did this I was able to get to the login screen and then I got to my desktop and it froze. So I had to do another hard restart. This happened a few times and again I had to do "last known good configuration".
Now I am stuck with no graphics card driver at all! Please help if you know what's wrong or if I was using the wrong drivers. Thank you!
