I'm new to Windows 7, just bought an HP laptop two months ago and I love it. The machine came with the same Intel display driver
that my old Dell had. Everything worked fine until I updated the driver with a Windows 7 'optional' update.
Now, every time I unplug my machine, the screen will flicker after about a second. I figured out that it is changing the refresh rate from 60hz to 40hz. When I plug it back in, back to 60 it goes. It's very frustrating for the screen to flash black like this, is there a way to fix it?
I've tried setting it to 60hz (In the Intel program) while it's unplugged. It changes it, then I plug in and it works like normal. But as soon as I unplug it again BOOM back to 40hz.
What am I doing wrong, and how in the world can I get it to always stay on 60hz, or even 40 if I must? It's so annoying to have to wait for the screen to flash whenever I unplug or plug it in.
I still haven't been able to find info in Windows 7 about what specific graphics driver I have...so I can't give specific info in that area. By the way how do I do that?
