Screen Flashing Black?

My screen will flash black then back again multiple times when anything gets plugged in (i.e. ipod, headphones, usb, etc.) Is this a sign my GFX card is failing or something else? Also, i get black and multi colored lines going across my screen from time to time (more and more frequently) are these all signs of a failing gfx card?

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

  1. Could be a failing graphic card, though there's really no reason why it should cause problems for iPod or headphones.
  2. Ya that's why i thought maybe it could be something else although all of this started when i updated my drivers on my gfx card.
  3. well then revert back to the original ones
