Windows 7: Old Laptop ASUS C90S screen goes black but cpu still is running . . .

Windows 7 Professional SP1 - x64 [Non-UEFI Boot]

What about going in Bios settings and allow more Ram (something like 128Mb shared Ram) for the video. I have this setting on an old HP Laptop, also i have unmount the Laptop to clean fans and redo the thermal paste on both CPU and GPU.

It happen with all files.
Running a video file is just an easy way to see the failure in action and know that the cpu is still running.

The laptop will experience similar failures if I try to launch the tv card, or other programs which put a lot of strain on this old machine.

I have tried both the newer drivers and some old ones I still have.

Some have suggested problems with Ram or even the Processor, could be the culprit. I have let some mem tests run extensively with no results.

I don't really have anyway to test the motherboard.

I will look into assigning more Ram in the BIOS as suggested by another member when I get a chance.

Thanks again.

You should be able to get the correct driver by going to the ASUS support website. From what i can find, the correct driver for your legacy card is this one-

NVIDIA DRIVERS GeForce 340.52 Driver WHQL
