My screen has been shaking/shivering for quite some time now. Maybe I should reinstall the graphics driver. If so, how should I do it?Please help!!!

First thing, reboot.

Check cable, connector ...

Plug an external screen, if it doesn't shake there is likely a hardware problem. There is not much you can do on a laptop.
