I have a pretty cheap and old Nvidia card.  I went to PCpitstop to run a test just for kicks (it would not complete but gave me a black screen).  Consequently, when I got out of the black screen situation I saw some most unusual displays I have never seen before on my monitor.  Suggestions were to update video card drivers.  I am gonna try this tonight since it's a multi megabyte download.  We'll see.

Good luck.  Do you have to do it manually....or do you have a download manager that you can schedule and forget it?

I have a mgr.  .  But a glitch happened and I quit.  No big deal as the only clue the card is outdated comes from PCpitstop and I can live with that.

Ah. Sometimes they seem to overdue their "update" stuff.  You might just re-install your old driver.
