I just installed a driver (280.28) and it was fine for the first few hours. Then when i played flash video on youtube, the screen messed up and now whenever I reboot, my entire screen is messed up, split in half and pixellated right from the start with the dell logo onwards.

I dont know what to do. I tried uninstalling the driver, clearing everything!! Its messed up my GPU for sure as GPU Z doesnt recognise clocks and other stuff while the pc doesnt recognise the GPU itself.

All i can think of doing now is flashing a new VGA bios but i cant find one!! I have an XPS m1530 with 8600m gt 256mb.

Please set me a BIOS if you can. this is urgent. I will have to use nvflash to flash it.

The only other option after this is to use a hairdryer n heat up the gpu and reflow it. I cant think of anything else

If anyone can help Please do so!!

It probably was not the driver. This issue was bound to happen even with other drivers. Looks like your GPU is fried :/ Hardware's fault.

Also sorry I can't find a bios either.
