Windows 7: Shutdown Issue

It actually started after updating my GeForce 6200 Graphics Driver.
I'll try to get a video snip.

In Device Manager, on the Display adapter Driver tab, Roll it back to previous version to see if flickering stops.

You have access to all installed drivers on the Driver tab>Update driver>Browse>Let Me Pick option.

You may even have a newer driver from manufacturer's Support Downloads webpage or optional Windows Updates. If not, using a previous driver is a solution to such issues.

Thank you GregRocker for helping me out, it figures that the display driver update was causing the screen to flicker during shutdown.

Glad it helped.

Is it the latest driver? How did you get it?

Have you enabled hardware auto-updating then checked several times to see if you have drivers cued in Optional Updates? http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/w...-your-hardware

Have you checked the manufacturer's Support Downloads webpage for your model to see what the driver choices are?

Knowing for sure if there is a newer driver, or if not that you cannot use the latest driver (by reinstalling to test it again) will give you certainty on the issue.

I downloaded the driver from the Nvidia website, it was the most current version. But knowing of the newest version's bug with my shutdown issue I'll most likely leave my driver as-is.
