Windows 7: Screen Blinking/Flashing Continously

Screen Blinking/Flashing Continously

Hello there,

This is my first post here, only yesterday I installed Windows 7 Ultimate Edition 64 bit and since then my monitor screen has been continuously blinking every few seconds or so (its blinking while I am writing this). My computer's specs screenshot is already attached in this post, I am using a Dell CRT monitor at the highest refresh rate possible (85 Hertz) and native resolution (1024x768). I've got the latest Nvidia drivers installed (Version 275.33 Windows 7 64 bit WHQL), still the screen blinks. Also, altohugh the screen is blinking my programs such as playing songs, movies etc do not get interrupted. Could this be a problem with the monitor or a clash between windows 7 and onboard GPU (Geforce 6150)? The screen was also blinking when i Had not installed the latest nvidia drivers but it does not blink in safe mode, only in normal mode). The system temperature is also fine.

I am ready to provide any other details you want but plz do help me get this problem solved asap.

Thank you

so that means that the problem is with the monitor and the my onboard graphic card or windows 7? i did switch my monitor off and on again and it hasnt blinked since then but it has only been few minutes.

Thank you boohbah, as long as it works
