Apparently, updating my graphics card makes it even worse. -.-
I have a NVIDIA Quadro FX 3600M (Yes, a laptop) and everytime I update it, the screen goes completely insane.

From my POV, it seems as though it has a hard time keeping a resolution, as it goes from resolution to black, to another resolution to black, and on and on, without my permission.

I changed the thermal paste the other day because the old application had melted on the chip.

Thanks for any help.

Are you sure the chip/pins aren't damaged?

It's running Vista 64-bit.

InfectHead: They might be, I'm actually no where near my laptop at the moment and won't be until late tonight.
I'll take a look at them then. Anything specific I should be looking for?

Make sure the gold pins are fine, and check both sides of the chip/around it to make sure there's nothing funky.
