Try going to Device Manager> Display Adapters> right click and Update Driver.

If there is no update, consider a beta driver from nVidia or ATI.

I have the exact same problem and i tried to upgrade but it said it was the latest upgrade for the graphics card.
I have an Intel Express Chipset Family graphics card.
Any suggestions?

Uhm....not really. Go to Intel's site (http://www.intel.com) and search for your card there.
