Windows 7: Screen Flashing

Screen Flashing

I'm currently running a GeForce 7900 GT/GTO card that I've never had problems with. I updated the drivers for Windows 7 from NVIDIA's site.

However, whenever I go to switch display settings, open a video, open a picture, or just about anything else graphically intense (including start-up) my screen freaks out. The screen will go a solid color (of whatever the background is), get lines through it, and then start flashing. Then after 10-20 seconds (or whenever the program I was trying to run is finished) it will revert back to normal.

I can run Aero just fine. I can run normal programs such as the internet browser, control panel, etc. fine as well. It's just whenever I try changing my display settings or running a video, opening a picture, etc.

Does anyone have any ideas as to what might be the problem? I've run GPU-Z and my card isn't overheating either I don't believe.

I'd appreciate any help you all can give me. Thanks.

Will

Is there any particular reason you chose to troll a year old thread?

He should just roll the drivers back to the ones that were working for his $50 graphics card.

You are right no one knows how to fix Nvidias drivers on this forum.
So if your having the same problem try the Nvidia forum at Nvidia.
