I recently used Intel's website to update a graphics driver. After I did this I noticed that my screen would blink every 2 or 3 seconds. I did not think much about it until I took the Laptop to work the next day and this blinking thing did not happen. I then tried it again at home and it started blinking again. I use a Verizon hot spot at home and use AT&T(wireless also) at work. Any idea what could cause this?

The driver installed from Intel could possibly be the culprit. Look for the correct video driver from your laptop manufacturing support site.

When I deleted the update my mouse and keyboard stopped working (on laptop). I ended up recovering back to before the update.

Not sure what particular laptop model you were referring but certain software or driver install and uninstall could corrupt system files. That is why the best drivers for laptops are from your manufacturing support site which are particularly made for your BIOS, chipset, video, network and audio drivers. They are the stable and correct driver version for your hardware components.
