That behavior typically indicates a faulty LVDS cable or cable connection. I've seen another thread where users report flickering green dots on black backgrounds, another manifestation of this issue, so it is experienced by others. Reseating the LVDS (video) cable to the motherboard may resolve the issue, but it could also indicate a failing display.

If you are stii within your retailer's exchange/return period, I would recommend exchanging your laptop for a new unit.

There is a glitch with 296.10 drivers,its all over the net.Happened to me twice while using video encoder.Rolled back to 295.73 and all is good.
