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?
