I posted a topic in the malware forum a while ago (I didn't have malware - I was getting a Server busy error that I believe was related to my GPU driver). I sent my laptop back to the manufacturer (Gigabyte) to get repaired. Near as I can tell, all they did was factory reset it.
I'm now no longer getting Server Busy errors (Thank goodness).
What I'm getting is screen flicker - where i'll get noise flash across my screen and then have the display go black.
I've searched the web and not come up with a great fix.
I've done a clean install of my latest GPU drivers. My BIOS is up to date. I've manually set my GPU as preferred device to render my applications. None of it deals with the screen flicker.
I've got no problems running the applications. But the screen flicker... sheez. The applications aren't taxing. I'm running the Banner Saga, which has really low requirements.
I've contacted Gigabyte about this and the silence is deafening.
