View Full Version : What does this look like to you guys? Fried GPU?

Friend just installed new drivers, it's buggered his laptop.
He tries running a game, his screen looks like this;

he's tried rolling back his drivers but to no avail, any suggestions?

oh and edit - screenshots look normal. Just the screen going pink physically. Only way to recover is apparently restarting the PC, however.

So this only happens when they try and run this one game?

Any game, apparently.

Currently using teamviewer to help him out, uninstalled both GPU's, reinstalling AMD's one now. Will come complain some more if not fixed soon.

Switching from extended desktop to disconnecting it again (when no ext display) made it not pink though.

You say that screenshots are fine but screen looks bad... Maybe its a connection problem.

It seems to have sorted itself... kinda, for now.
Appears to be something related to the switchable graphics. Other things have improved it seems, and he's happy. But suggestions are still welcome.
