I have a Windows 8 Laptop and every few days my laptop screen appears to have spotlights shining down from the top of the screen. If I disable / enable the graphics card in device manager they vanish for a few hours. The image attached shows the display issue (found on google) but the lights are shining upward on the image - in my case the lights shine down from the top.

Can anyone please tell me what is causing this and the fix.

It is called "Flashlighting".  Common with LCD screens, that are lit by CFL lighting.
