Windows 7: Seemingly Random BSOD or Black Screen + Windows Failed Update

It does, or did. My monitor wasn't getting signal from it when I hooked it up a minute ago.

Do you know if it's part of the motherboard or the CPU?

Didn't know they could be part of the CPU. But the CPU is Intel, and the built-in graphics are Nvidia, so I'd think it would be part of the motherboard.

It'll be part of the motherboard, I asked because since the onboard graphics card doesn't seem to be working and the PCIe slot is partially broken, then the motherboard could be at fault here.

Is there a motherboard diagnostic tool I could run or something?

There's not unfortunately, but when you attempted to use the onboard graphics card, did you make sure it was enabled in the BIOS? Did you remove the PCIe card?

My bad, didn't realize I couldn't have my other card plugged in. Figured it wouldn't matter as long as it wasn't connected to the monitor.
I'll run it for awhile with the built-in to see what happens. But sometimes it can take a few hours before the problems start to appear.

Also, I've recently had a few occurrences where the drivers for my card GPU crashed and then recovered immediately after. These are the newest drivers, though. I updated to the current version after windows started crashing.

The driver crashing, can be a result of the card too, and post back if you have any problems.

Windows screen flashes, random grey screen & random black screen
This is driving me crazy. Right after I boot my laptop, the screen flashes randomly. Also something is stealing focus from what I am working on to something else. Then it likes to suddenly go to a grey screen. I have to manually reboot. If that is not enough, it like to just reboot.
