Screen Flickers under Windows 7

Hello everyone,

A buddy of mine is having a very strange issue that didn't appear in windows Vista...

He is running an HP Pavilion Entertainment PC, Exact specs I can't get at this tiime, but I know he is running an Integrated Graphics Chip.

The issue he is having is during gameplay, his screen flickers randomly, about every twenty or so seconds.

Has anyone had a similar issue with integrated chipsets?
