So u want me to just install the n vidia driver now and only that one correct? Thus only check it and leave all the other 31 important updates unchecked?


I can do this but im pretty certain what will happen is it will install then when the computer restarts i will get the black screen again but i can try it again if u want me to.

Install the Intel and Net Framework first, reboot, then install Nvidia.

Read your Manual that I linked earlier and ask Google to try to find anything about the dual or switchable graphics on your model. If you can find nothing then look at the Intel Graphics control panel for any settings pertaining to this.

Which?

Didn't you say there was already an Intel Display driver installed in Device Manager? Compare it's date and version number to the one Updates is pushing? If it's the same then go ahead and install the others and skip the Intel Display.

You may need the Intel Mgmt engine to make the others work.

Okay installed the intel mgmt.


At the moment when i click windows update, theres the important update that is the nvidia graphics adapter. Also there are security updates as well so im doing those first.


In Device manager, theres only 1 exclammation point now the standard vga graphics adapter.


The network adapters now show

atheros ar pci-e gigabyte ethernet controller
atheros ar wireless network adapter

I asked you to compare the Intel Display driver that you said was queued in Windows Update to the one which was presently installed in Device Manager. I heard nothing back from you and now there is no mention of the Intel display driver. Did you install it?

If all that is left is the Nvidia driver and it won't install then try the Nvidia driver I linked last night from the Asus Support Downloads webpage.

Okay now theres a bigger problem. I installed it through the asus link without an issue. However, my computer each time after it starts up, it basically freezes after i click on DEVICE MANAGER and i have to power off and then power on each time now. I belive this have something to do with the nvidia download.


So i went to device manager it shows


Intel R HD Graphics
NVIDIA Geforce 310M


Im not sure why it shows 2 of them as you earlier mentioned it should be only one.



So right now assuming computer restarts there isn't an issue. The moment i go to device manager and click on it from start menu, computer basically freezes soon after that. When im just clicking other things like google and checking sites, doesn't seem to freeze.
