Can someone point me in right Direction Please.

Okay, I'm currently running a NVIDIA Geforce 9800gt Grachics Card And it Sometimes running Games my Screen Flickers Black for 3+ seconds then it's fine again, But not too long ago i Also had Video Card Artifacts. And It work's now exept that one problem, i checked at Drivers - Download NVIDIA Drivers Which scanned my driver's to be Latest Driver. But also, Since i'm running Window's 7 Ultimate it say's this when Attempting to Re-Install Driver's

C:\NVIDIA\DisplayDriver\275.33\Vista\International

Since it say's Vista in there. it's a lil' confusing Since i'm Running Windows 7 Ultimate x32 and Window's XP on a Partition, Am I Doing anything wrong? Or Is it a Problem?

Please Help

Artifacts are far more commonly a sign of a problem with the hardware itself (the graphics card)
That one is getting on in age it's possible it's dying on you.

I See... This happened 2 week's ago. So i got a Free 512 Mb NVIDIA Temporarily to see if it was CPU Or Video Card. It Made my CPU beep Once with the 512. But when i had finished with the 512 i put my 9800 Back in, No Problems, No more Artifact's exept the Flikering, Any other Idea's and Also i Did Install the Driver "Custom Install" Clean Sweep I shall test it now. On Assasins Creed BrotherHood I shall report Back

I had a nvidia rig that used to give that message.
Turned out the power supply wasn't quite enough.
It ran for a year or so on it before the problem started showing up.
A slightly larger psu fixed the problem.

I suppose the flicker could be a power related problem. Seems a bit far fetched though, only because of the mention of artifacts.

that's the system in the den, and I honestly don't recall the psu, I'm thinking it was a thermaltake not entirely sure.
The replacement is a 750watt silverstone.
