Visual Display Glitch!

Ever since I have installed Windows 7 onto my Dell Studio Notebook, I have come across a visual problem, now I did not have this in Vista prior to installing Windows 7, but I have a screen shot as to what the visual problem is, it goes like that very frequent, with the more and more windows i open up, internet explorer etc...I've been told this is a driver issue, can anyone confirm or help out?

That's a driver issue. Open up device manager. type dev in the start menu, and look for your gpu, then download the newest driver direct from the manufacturer.

Go to the intel website and let the add-on install in IE8. Then it will recommend drivers if your's are outdated. Integrated performance is pretty poor with Aero, what is your subscore for the 2 graphics categories?

For that card, its OK. The higher, the better. That is roughly average. Have you got the newest drivers?

Don't use driver update programs. They are using. Visit the Intel web site.

I've been having the exact same problem. I've tried updating my drivers through the Device Manager and also through Intel's site. I have a Mobile Intel 4 Series Express Chipset Family. I've rebooted multiple times, lowered my resolution and none of this works. I still am getting the same sort of visual glitches. Has anyone found a solution to this problem?
