Greetings all, new here... Generally fend for myself when it come to these sorts of things but after hours of following threads and uninstalling/reinstalling drivers
, connecting, disconnecting, I figured I'd try to get some help.
Just bought this machine, Asus K50IN laptop with an Nvidia G102M 512mb graphics card in it. I work as a DJ and VJ and this is my primary machine and means of living, it needs to be reliable in different scenarios and work its a*s off an average of 5 nights a week.
So long story short: bought machine, installed a clean version of Win 7 Ultimate and then all relevant drivers... Things worked great the first week. No issues. Then 2 nights ago I plugged into my normal rig (a toshiba projector with an extension monitor daisy chained to it at one of the clubs I work in) and everything was tinted bright pink. I messed with it for a few minutes but I was late already and there were people to entertain so I played anyway with this weird pink tint over everything.
Last night, back to work again... Came early to try and fix the bugger before I would be pressured to play. Adjusted settings in Nvidia control panel, messed with color, resolution, etc. At some point while doing this the secondary display went black and never came back on.
I have reset all settings, completely uninstalled, updated, etc etc etc... Even on my secondary monitor at home, same deal. Monitor is on and says all is fine and working properly but my desktop won't extend to the second monitor. It stays black. Mouse rolls over there then takes its time coming back. It's on, and the computer thinks everything is hunky dory.
I've tried about everything software wise I can think of and am starting to think the VGA out may be buggered.
