Hello everyone. I would be very greatful if someone could give me information about a problem I have on my laptop. Or if possible, help me solve it.
I bought a used laptop "ASUS Z53s" about a week ago. It had windows xp installed. The laptop worked perfectly fine. Few days later I upgraded it to Windows 8 Pro via upgrade assistant. It said that my pc was compatible. When using windows 8, I got blue screens few times(it said something about graphics). Then one time when I pressed the lower left corner of the screen, the screen turned to this:
so I immediately turned the laptop off. Now I get only that screen from the first second I power on the laptop. No bios screen, no nothing. Although it booted to windows 8(but still not visuals on the screen). When I left it on with a screen like that, after a while it slowly turned to this:
Then after 10-20mins I turned it off and then on again and it started to work perfectly fine again. So I thought that maybe it was something with windows 8. So I immediately installed windows xp back and installed graphics card driver(my graphics card is nVidia GeForce 8400M). Then I had to go to sleep so I turned it off, and in the morning the screen problem was there again. But this time, it restarted after the windows xp boot screen(I can tell that because windows xp makes a click sound when it passes the boot screen). I tried to connect an external monitor. I can see the bios screen, and windows xp boot screen but it still reboots after it. Then went to safe mode and uninstalled the graphics driver. Now I can boot to windows xp normally, but it still reboots after 3-5mins of usage(reboots doesn't occur while on safe mode). Though the laptops lcd is still unusable(white).
So this is the problem I have. Like I said, I would be INSANELY greatful if someone would help me on this.
