Windows 7: Flickering display and windows kernel mode driver prob

Flickering display and windows kernel mode driver prob

Hi.
I've got some minor problems but still I find them quite annoying.
First:
When I'm running Win 7 my display is flickering. It just looks like bad reception on a TV station. When it gets too bad the display turns blak and after a second everything is fine and it starts all over again.

Second:
After a while Windows states that there is a problem with the Nvidia windows kernel mode driver, version 186.81 and that it has been restored. (This info is given after the screen turns black).

I think that there is a connection between those two problems but I don't know how to solve it.

I've got a nVidia Geforce 9650m GT grafics card and after I installed win 7 downloaded and installed the driver.

It is even worse when aero is running.
In Vista everything was fine.

Hi, go to the Nvidia site and, download the latest drivers for your card and install
them, I hope this will fix your problem.

Already updated

Thanks for your reply.

But unfortunately there is still no improvement...
I downloaded the driver and installed it again. But there's still flickering all over the screen....

same

I have the same problem: my drivers stop working every minutes. I have then 50% chance they recover, or not (need to reboot).
I noticed bugs are reduced in 186.31 (every 5 minutes), but still here. Please help.

I have a 9650M GT.
I just formated my computer but nothing's changed.

you guys have laptops right? I have an Acer 5920g with a 8600M gt and also have the flickering problem ( only on laptop monitor not on external) the best results I got with the 186.13 driver this is the one with at least flickering (its still there but not that massive)

Some guys claim to fixed that with the new dox driver ( powermizer disabled)
or by disabling powermizer in the registry

you find more @ NVIDIA & Laptop News | Latest NVIDIA drivers and related news | laptopvideo2go.com

with the 186.13 my aero performance dropped from 4.9 to 4.8 and in CSS fps from 210fps to 140fps but the screen has less flickering.
in fact while in game there is no flicker only on desktop.

If you guys find any solution let me know.

the problem is, that the actual drivers have way more screenflicker as the old ones
tried several 190.xx and 180.xx drivers
the 190.xx series were way worse than the 186.13
