    Hello community

    I encounter an issue, i left my notebook on, because i was downloading something, and this morning, when i get back to it, and touch it, the screen start flashing, turning on and off, i was seeing windows, running ok, but the flashes wont stop, i had to put the system down, and reboot, and everything was normal again.

    Do you know anything about this happening?

    P.S. - i recently installed a new beta version of Nvidia drivers, i don´t know if it was because of that.


    thank you again, for your patience

    I'm not sure if it has to do with beta drivers. It could be.
    You might want to uninstall them and use the Windows Update drivers if it happens again.

    Actually when using laptops, you're supposed to use the drivers provided by the laptop manufacturer. Not the drivers from AMD, nvidia or Windows Update.

    Most laptop manufacturers don't support windows upgrading, but since this is win8.1 that ms is pushing for free upgrading they might change their tune.
    He is right in that the OEM drivers would be the ones most suited to run on your system over a generic driver.

    Well, yes. I should have said, people are supposed to use supported operating systems on laptops only. No OEM driver -> no support -> stick to what is supported and request official support from the manufacturer.
