Weird graphic artifacts after upgrading drivers

I have a Sager laptop with an 8700m GT graphics card and running Vista 32. I just upgraded the drivers and things are improved...except one thing.

If I unplug my laptop from the wall (or from the back of the computer) while it's on, the screen flashes to black for just a moment (like, .1 second). Then, when I plug it back in, I get some weird graphics artifacts - and the colors got inverted - it's very odd. This was not happening before I upgraded the drivers.

The other problem is that I can't take a screenshot of it - it just looks normal in screenshots. So I had to take a photo of it with my cameraphone. This is what it looks like:

In order to fix it, I have to go back and change something - anything - in the graphics settings, and it goes back to normal.

This isn't right. Ideas?

What drivers have you been using before and during this occurrence? I suggest trying the newest dox drivers and see if it fixes the problem as this looks very much like a driver problem and nothing hardware related.
