Your flickering laptop screen may be an early sign of the outdated/mismatched/corrupted graphics and/or chipset drivers. If mishandled, it can feed into more serious problems like snowy screens, blue screens of death etc. But don’t worry, we can update our drivers to the latest version to nip these problems in the bud.
There’re two ways you can update your device drivers — manually or automatically:
Update your drivers manually – To troubleshoot the issue, you can update the aforementioned drivers manually ONE BY ONE until you pin down the exact offending driver. Firstly you’ll have to go to Asus’s website, search for the most recent correct driver for the devices. Be sure to choose only drivers that are compatible with your variant of Windows system versions. Then download & update them all by yourself.
Update your drivers automatically – If you don’t have the time, patience or computer skills to update your drivers manually, you can, instead, do it automatically with Driver Easy. You don’t need to know exactly what system your computer is running, you don’t need to risk downloading and installing the wrong driver, and you don’t need to worry about making a mistake when installing.
You can update your drivers automatically with either the FREE or the Pro version of Driver Easy. But with the Pro version it takes just 2 clicks (and you get full support and a 30-day money back guarantee):
1) Download and install Driver Easy.
2) Run Driver Easy and click the Scan Now button. Driver Easy will then scan your computer and detect any problem drivers.
3) You can upgrade to the Pro version and click Update All to automatically download and install the correct version of ALL the drivers that are missing or out of date on your system.
You can also click Update to do it for free if you like, but it’s partly manual.
4) Restart your computer and see if your screen displays properly this time.
