I tried that again, and this time it installed properly, so far as I can tell. Unfortunately, it doesn't seem to have fixed my problem.
Does anyone else have any ideas? It seems to do it more when I'm on Netflix (every few minutes sometimes). I'm at my wits end...

I have also tried uninstalling the driver and then re-installing (the new one). Unfortunately, when I uninstall the graphics driver and then run the .exe for the new one, it doesn't install the new graphics part- just the audio. I can't figure out how to make it recognize that the graphics card still exists/install that part of the driver. So I had to install the new one over the old one.
