Compositor is not available (400) (fixed by graphics update, second problem has arisen.)

Hello, I have this laptop. ASUS ROG Strix GL502VM-FY173T 15.6 inch FHD Gaming Laptop (Intel Kabylake Core i5-7300HQ, 12 GB DDR4... When i first got the laptop it ran my vive perfectly fine in direct mode. But after plugging a second monitor into it and then swapping back to the vive i get this error. Also i get error 306 after closing steam vr. Does anyone know how to fix this? Direct mode straight up doesn't work. And i can very occationally get non direct mode to work, but only with a very small number of games and even then they are tempermental. ( this problem has been fixed by a graphics driver update) 

Second problem mentioned below.

Sometimes adding a second monitor can complicate things. What ports are you using for what devices? You may want to check your display settings too.

Thanks,

If your base station has a Fault 02/03 error or a red light or both, the ONLY solution is to contact our support on vive.com and set up an RMA. There is no user fix for this issue.

Hello,

The second monitor was not part of the setup when i went back to using the vive. I unplugged the second monitor to use the vive. I updated my graphics drivers straight from the geforce website and that seems to have sorted this problem. 

But now i am having a second problem, everything shows green, but the headset it'self won't show images, it is tracked and has a light on the side, i can see it's movements in game.
