XPS M1330 Screen Blinking and Glitching

Hai all,

I just installed the latest nvidia driver and bios in my XPS M1330 with windows.7. It worked fine but after two days, the screen blinking and glitching. I have to boot into safe mode and roll back to "standard VGA graphics Adapter driver" and it work fine. so my question, is it dell until now no solution for XPS M1330 Graphic GPU problems? or any solution for this? i just want to connect my window 7 to projector. or any suggestion to connect to projector with standard VGA graphic adapter driver?

my notebook spec:
OS: Windows. 7 ultimate 32bit
graphic: nvidia geforce 8400 M GS
driver: v191.07 Windows 7/Vista 32bit | NVIDIA - NVISION
bios: A15

I tried all the driver in forums.laptopvideo each with driver sweeper to clean up the previous graphic driver but no luck.

Anyone know how to connect the projector with simple driver or with 'standard vga graphic adapter' driver????

The blinking and glitching, especially with the correct driver installed, is not a good sign and may be caused by hardware failure.

If I was you, I would try to revert back to the original bios you had on your machine. Flash it again with the "old" version. If that doesn't help, it's further evidence of hardware failure.

To solve the screen flashing and not responding error in windows 7, go to start, type regedit in the search line and press Enter. Once the registry editor is opened, find these registry keys and delete them.
  • HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Control Panel\Desktop\HungAppTimeOut
  • HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Control Panel\Desktop\WaitToKillAppTimeOut
  • HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop\HungAppTimeOut
  • HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop\WaitToKillAppTimeOut
  • HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop\WaitToKillServiceTimeOut

Once all these keys are deleted, Screen flashing will be solved in your computer.

I'm having the screen flicking problem off and on. Went into the registry to delete those keys but they aren't there at all. I have no idea what to do at this point besides reinstall windows..
