Windows 7: Gateway GT5056

22 Jan 2010   #1

Windows 7 Ult 64bit
Gateway GT5056

When ever I install windows 7 or even vista on this machine the display acts all funny and flickers uncontrollably. Its fine when running xp but Id really like to run 7 on this thing without having a seizure.

Its a gateway gt5056 w/ onboard nvidea 6100, any suggestions?

I found these : NVIDIA DRIVERS 185.81 BETA beta drivers for the nvidea 6100, but im still having the same issues. It must be motherboard or cpu related?
I had 32bit xp installed and everything was fine, but when installing vista or Windows 7 the screen goes buggy...

any other suggestions?
