I am recently having an issue with my display. It will for no reason randomly go white/grey fuzzy with vertical crazy fast lines in it just like in this picture. I am hoping it is as simple as drivers getting funky and not my hardware.

My Laptop Specs are as follows:
ASUS G72GX
6GB RAM (3x2GB cards)
Intel Core 2 duo P8700 2.53ghz
nVidia GEFORCE GTX 260M 1G CUDA (Using latest 335.23 recommended graphics drivers)
Windows 8 Pro (am going to upgrade to 8.1 for better recourse consumption soon)

If there is anything else about my system that you'd like to know just tell me. If the problem is simply the drivers then I will have no problem rolling back to the previous build.

Any help is appreciated and thanks in advance.

With a notebook, you are very limited on repair/maintenance. If it were a desktop, I would tell you to re-seat the RAM. But with a notebook , about all you can do is make sure that the drivers are up to date.

so are you saying it's hardware related and not software? and also, what do you mean by re-seat the ram? moving the cards around? cuz I can do that. this is a gaming laptop. all hardware is replaceable/upgradable.

it's also sometimes not permanent (as in i don't have to hard reset the laptop). Just earlier it did it again while I was browsing the web and after a few seconds it kicked back to normal

Asus doesn't have your model on the website any longer, so I don't have much information on the model. If you can upgrade the RAM, re-seating the RAM involves removing it cleaning the contacts, blowing out the slot ad reinstalling the RAM. Video errors like you describe are often RAM related.

If the graphics card is removable, do the same thing with the GPU as well.

It's alright now. Ever since I upgraded my system to Windows 8.1 it hasn't been happening.
