Drivers updates cannot corrupt hardware such displays. The problem might be related to the monitor EDID not interacting with graphics VBIOS.
Please try updating computer BIOS, this will hand shake Video BIOS. Please bear in mind the graphics controller is part of the processor and the graphics portion can get damaged.
Please update BIOS and try to install latest Intel graphics driver.
Thanks for your reply allan.
I already have the latest BIOS version (214) for my laptop, according to ASUS.
I even tried downgrading it back to older versions and then updating to the new version again (And installing the newest driver), but alas.
