I had tried this already. I had tried also to download my driver from Nvidia's website. But as i said earlier after this installation it is working properly until i watch a video then i have a blue screen it shut downs and then I open it again and everything is as it was with red lines.

Usually, those lines appear from damage caused by overheating. I doubt really you can do anything apart from buying another computer :( .

If it was a desktop, you would be able to do that. However, in most laptops, the graphics card is soldered to the motherboard so you would have no way of taking it out.

Thank you anw! I am so disappointed now, I thought there would be a solution, because my laptop never had a heating problem and am 60% sure that this not from over hitting but from something else. All this happen after i had installed some updates and restart it ! i tried to do system restore but it is not working :(
