Some time back the image on my monitor started blurring frequently
(requiring reboot) or I would receive a BSOD about nvlddmkm.sys. An
'expert' had me reinstall the nVidia drivers and the problem stopped for
abut a day. Now it is increasing in frequency. I get the blurring
whether I am in safe mode or not. Sometimes the problem begins seconds
after boot up. Sometimes it runs perfectly for a day - never two days
but usually happens 3-5 times a day. Ran a test per HP that 'proved'
the video card is OK. I would think once I reboot and have the correct

times a day.
Finally, my speakers appear haunted. OK, not really. But every few

more peculiar, to me, is once or twice a week, I can hear someone
talking through the speakers. I can't tell if it is a cell phone
bleeding over, radio, or whatever, but I can hear 5-10 words of someone
speaking and no more voices for a few days. Maybe coincidence but the
last time it happened was when I was having trouble with the keyboard.
That's it. Are all/any of these related? Could my monitor problem be
something other than a driver? Could the driver be causing a scrensaver
