    Anyone else having issues with hardware acceleration w/ this laptop? The issue is making most pictures look bad with bright red/green filling and videos are just green. I get the problem in Edge, Chrome, Firefox, IE, as well as the Plex Media app from the Windows Store. I've had the issue from the get-go and below are currently installed drivers:

    Nvidia Driver - 397.64
    Intel Driver - 23.20.16.4939 (Date 29Jan18)

    I also do have some of the lagging where the mouse freezes that I assume is caused by the Optimus glitch I've read about (the switching).

    Note: I have also already tried the WakeupGPU fix on the Gigabyte Support Page.

    When you updated your nvidia driver did you use the geforce experience app or did you just use the installer ? I had issues with BSOD and games crashing and for most part corrected itself when I used a program called DDU to uninstall all the files for nvidia

    I have used DDU before. Are you saying I need to wipe the driver entirely and make sure the fresh one gets installed from scratch? Can I still then reinstall the driver from GeForce Experience?

    It might be left over files conflicted with the new driver.

    Once it's uninstalled your display just goes off the UHD graphics and you get a chance to choose clean custom install and what drivers you want when you run the nvidia installer.


    Also there's an update for the UHD graphics I just installed that with the intel driver assistant software.

    I tried to download the "WakeupGPU" executable from the Gigabyte's page but it was tagged as a threat by Defender. Snap here :https://imgur.com/a/FHwkbVF

    It did that for me too. It's fine though, you can continue and install it.
