    Seems to be an driver problem of the display card!

    I had a bit similar on Server 2008 with an not fully supported Display Card, an ATI card. Open the Device manager and check what Display Driver is installed.

    I also have this graphic card in my Win7 laptop and I never had this problems, but try reinstall/update driver. If it's not a problem, check Power Options.
