    Win 8 video card problem?


    Hi, everyone, I have a problem with this computer:

    http://www.sony.it/s.../specifications

    I'll post a youtube video to help you understand:




    I'm also looking for a solution because I know the video card but I wanted to see if I could disable some video effect to remove the problem because the problem may be that too.

    I can not have any solution to the problem happened when I upgraded from win7 64bit to 64bit win8 with upgrade assistant .

    Thank you for any kind of suggestion.

    Hello Teo, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    Do you have the latest 310.33 BETA or 306.97 WHQL driver for your NVIDIA GeForce G210M graphics installed?

    If so, then you might see if uninstalling/reinstalling it, or trying a different version may help.

    Hope this helps,

    I'm sorry, but I don't understand your reply.

    Do you have the latest driver version installed at the link I posted above?

    Do you have all of your Windows Updates installed?

    What is the exact error message when you try to update? A manufacture "locking" video card updates is very unusual, and I can't think of a reason why; or how they would do it.
