Windows 7: Periodic black screens, persists for 3-5 seconds at a time

Hi,

Just wanted to update you guys on the status. I've been running for two days now without ANY black screens at all. Currently, I am on the latest NVIDIA driver, 314.07, where I previously had black screens.

But now, I haven't experienced any and I'm just waiting for the apocalypse. Not sure what happened there.

My theory is that because I upgraded from 306.23 (a stable version) to the current, that had something to do with it? I dunno, just grasping at straws here.

Whatever, it is good. I wish the black screens will not be back to you.
