Red tint at the bottom of my screen

    Red tint at the bottom of my screen


    After updating my GPU driver (and I think, it failed) this red tint appeared



    It's only at the bottom though, it doesn't affect the whole screen.



    It appears at startup and everywhere. It doesn't appear in an external monitor.
    I have two graphics cards: Intel HD Graphics 4000 and NVIDIA GeForce GT 630M

    The NVIDIA is the one I updated recently.
    I also tried reinstalling the NVIDIA driver but I don't know if I reinstalled it properly.

    Yeah it's a laptop. A Samsung laptop.

    Anyway, is this hardware related or software related? Maybe the failed installation is just a coincidence. I also have problems of ants entering my laptop so maybe they messed up the inside. Any idea how to fix this? And will this red tint go everywhere like cancer?

    Windows 8.1.1 Pro with Media Center


    Run this batch file that runs SFC & DISM commands.
    It might help.
    Download it & right click it & click Properties & Unblock it if needed.

    It takes 2 hours or so to finish.
