    The last time I had an issue like this, it ended up being the video card. Downloaded latest drivers and still didn't work properly. Then I came across and tried his drivers out (after doing a full clean-up of the existing drivers). Well, not only did this solve my problem, but for years now I've been using his drivers without problems.
