I've been having trouble with my Asus N56V laptop. It crashes out of nowhere and does this more often as the laptop is used more regularly. I'm rather certain the problem is not software related as I've reinstalled different operating systems and formatted my drive and it keeps occuring. It can run heavy games fine and then crash while browsing the web. What I'm doing doesn't seem to influence it.
Strange lines occur and move around at the side of the screen:
If I've not used the laptop for a few weeks, it will crash after about a 6 hour period. If I use it again soon after, time will be shorter (say 3 hours) and so on until it will work for only a few minutes. If I leave the laptop off for a few weeks, this pattern goes back to ~6 hours or so. A few hours doesn't seem to work to go back to more hours. The laptop doesn't seem to overheat either (and it is not just the display, sound will cease at the same time the display does).
I hope anyone knows what the problem is!
