Quirky screen behavior in Excel 2010

I recently upgraded to Windows 7 and Office 2010.  When using Excel, I frequently experience a "shifting" screen image, especially (perhaps exclusively) when switching between multiple open workbooks.  I've attached a screenshot below to illustrate.

The area that "shifts" isn't the entire Excel window - just the worksheet itself (the column letters/headers down to the tabs).  The shifting is usually a few pixels down and to the right; the proper image seems to stay in place, but a separate "layer" of the worksheet image is presented in this shifted position.

I can usually fix it by zooming in then back out, or switching back to the other workbook and then back again.

Though I do use several macros that incorporate ScreenUpdating, this issue occurs when ScreenUpdating = TRUE.

Any tips to eliminate this bug would be greatly appreciated!

This is usually representative of a driver issue. Try installing the most current manufacturer's driver for your video card.

Should have mentioned that I already tried that.  My video card is NVIDIA NVS 4200M.  I already had Dell's most recent driver installed (R306240), so I tried the even more recent version available directly from NVIDIA (Verde 275.33 Driver).  Neither driver seems to fix the issue.
I still feel that this is driver related. Try reducing your video acceleration and see if it gets better.

Try changing your default printer and see if that helps.

Changing the printer didn't seem to help either.  I'm inclined to think jzaniewski is correct re: the video card's driver, though I suppose it's possible that both drivers I've tried are susceptible to this issue.  

Thank you both for your suggestions.
I would try calling Nvidia and see if they have a fix for this issue. Their main number is 408-486-2000.
