Today my laptop screen has started flickering really badly; it's like a liney snowstorm and the screen goes lighter and darker. At regular intervals the screen has now started going completely black and windows 'prepares to stand by' - I haven't set it to do this, I've never had it do that in it's whole life! - and then I have to sign back in.

Someone suggested updating my drivers for the monitor and video in particular but I can't even find them. I've tried DriverMax but it doesn't seem to be installing anything I download.

I guess a cable could be loose but I wouldn't be comfortable poking around my machine without any instructions.

Help?? :'<
