Configuration: Y560 - Win7 x64
Display driver: HD5730, version 8.752.0.0, dated 6/29/2010
Laptop started acting this way a couple of weeks, out of warranty period. Screen is somewhat pixelated, and when it attempts to draw the screen, it is slow and sometimes missing pieces of the picture. On refresh, it does draw the missing pieces.
Is this a display driver problem (I think I updated to the latest version) or is this a hardware problem?
Thanks in advance for any advice.

I don't think there is switchable on your laptop, I was just making sure cause I know someone who tried to installing those drivers and it come up not compatible.

Graphic artifact like pixelation usually is a hardware issue, but it could also be a resolution issue as well or drivers. The other day some guy was getting bad artifact while playing guys, (he only had intel graphics and posted a video) gave him this site to try updating Intel® Driver Update Utility site and it fixed it. You don't have intel graphics, but I would still try updating what you can, before ringing for tech support.
