Windows 7: Clean Reinstall of Asus U45JC-A1 Laptop

OK if you're tired you shouldn't do any more.

Before starting tomorrow sure to read back over the last steps I gave you because it seems a matter of the order to install those drivers, possibly Intel first and then Nvidia.

I don't see anything about that model having switchable graphics which would be what you have if you didn't have a Nvidia card added. I'd look in BIOS setup on all tabs to see if there is any display choices at all to choose one or the other, or indications it has switchable graphics for gaming which I dont' see in the Manual.

Yea it required me to install intel driver first. So then i did that, then computer went to black screen... and now i have to install the nvidia again in windows update and making sure i only check it and leave all those other updates unchecked.

There's a possibility it may also need first that Intel Mgmt chipset driver to help sort the graphics.

I only wanted you to install the Asus download VGA driver if the Windows Update didn't work. Hold off on it for now.

Yea very tired now. Yea i will read it again tomrorow. It seems like i have to manually install one by one and cant just do windows update all like my dell xps. I know there is some issue with the nvidia driver which is why this is very complicated. The dell xps one when doing the windows update was a breeze, it basically just did eveyrthing.

You're doin fine, learnin a lot. Hang in there.

There is something very strange about your laptop having two display drivers. The only time this normally happens is on very high end gaming laptops to boost gaming display speed. It would say in the Manual if this is the case unless you paid extra for the feature and should know about ordering it.

Normally Standard VGA driver goes away when the Display driver is updated.

If it takes both drivers after installing Intel first and they both show up in Device manager then it likely has switchable graphics and there should be some controls for this in either the Intel or Nvidia Control Panel, most likely Intel Display controls since it required having it installed first probably to facilitate this.

When i got this laptop, i never did any upgrades at all. Also, its not a gaming laptop i believe. I just recalled the vga adapter in device manager was always there.

Have you installed the Nvidia driver yet? It appears you have two graphics chips or a card and chip - possibly switchable graphics - since you were prompted to install the Intel first yesterday when you tried to install the Nvidia? Didn't you get this Nvidia driver from Windows Update? Check for Updates now to see if it is queued.

You can find out what each of those other two are by googling the hardware ID from Device Manager - Finding Unknown Devices - Windows 7 Help Forums.. Then download and install them from the Asus webpage linked earlier.

When i went to windows update, i still see the nvidia driver as a recommended install which i means it didn't install on my computer yet.
