It sounds like a wrong video driver

You should get a video driver from the manufacturer of your computer only.

First you'd need to have some vague idea WHY the video driver might stop working. Like some specific set of scenarios where it consistently happens. Otherwise you're just fumbling around in the dark hoping to get lucky.

That's proper.

Many of today's laptops don't have Windows 7 drivers. Is there any make/model on this laptop?

Also, did it come with RESTORE MEDIA or did you make the restore media so we can reload it to the factory load?
