Yes and yes. I went into Device Manager and checked if I have the latest drivers. And I have Flash Player 11,1,102,55 installed installed. Smiley Sad

System Restore solved the problem. However it was bizarre how I couldn't even reinstall Intel drivers... I would get an error about how my system doesn't meet the mimimum requirements

The Intel driver will error out by default under normal procedure. It's generally not recommended to install the Intel driver on a Optimus config as the NVidia package includes the necessary Intel-side driver.
