That model has Nvidia Optimus Switchable graphics. So open the Nvidia Control Panel which should be on a tab on the Nvidia Display Driver in Device Manager. Look for controls for Switchable graphics and try all settings.

You may need to work in Safe Mode with Networking on Advanced Boot Options or if you can get into Device Manager Roll back the Nvidia driver on its Driver tab.

More here about Optimus | Technology | GeForce.

If this doesn't help then click on the Drivers tab on that same GeForce page and try the Nvidia driver and software package for your model device. Let it autodetect.

If you want me to connect just let me know.

We need to find you a driver that works.

The Windows Update NVIDIA driver black screens at reboot, correct?

The Asus latest driver is only 2011 and it causes freezes, correct?

Next try the Nvidia driver and software package from the Drivers tab on the Nvidia page I gave you to read about Optimus Switchable graphics. Optimus | Technology | GeForce

Reboot and tap F8 to boot into System Recovery Options to System Restore to before the driver.

Try the Drivers | GeForce AutoDetect GPU to be absolutely sure you're getting the right device models driver. This will involve installing some software they will hand you. Read about it on the green link.

If that fails install the 64bit GeForce 300M software package from dropdowns.
