This, my favorite laptop has a symptom that presents itself as a small (3/4 square inch
at most) area of screen with scrambled graphics. At the same time the ability to
connect to a second monitor is lost. I also notice that if I go to Control Panel ->
System -> Device Mgr -> Display Adaptors the Intel HD Graphics Device is
stated as "Not working". Then if I select disable the device from the Driver tab
and re-enable, the problems go away for a while.
*** So this may help you if you also have this problem ***
Problem is that is problem keeps returning. So far, repeating steps above does
solve the problem for a few days.
Does anyone else have some comments about this, like "how to fix this permanently",
what could cause this phenomena ?

Thanks for the input CB !
Yes, I actively install lots of programs on my computer, like visual studio, eclipse,
and plug ins, etc.
Would it help to re-install the graphics driver ?
Since this problem randomly occurs it almost seems like some other program,
might be overwriting a memory area that the graphics driver is using.
It typically happens upon power up, and then I follow the work arround procedure,
mentioned in my first post to fix it, until it happens again..
