Interesting display issue (screen flickers) RRS feed

  • Question

  • You may think I am having a typical display driver issue, but I don't think I am, here's why.

     

    I installed Vista Business on a 46x AMD 2GB system with a Nvidia 6100 video card.  When I boot into vista the screen keeps flickering.  It never goes black, just keeps flickering.  I updated all the video cards, and even went to the nvidia website to make sure I had a 64x vista compatible driver.  Everything checked out.  Here's where it gets interesting.  When I put the computer into the new "hibernate" mode, and bring it back out everything works great.  I get no flickering from that point on until I do a restart.  After a restart I have to go back in and out of hibernate to get it to stop again.

     

    Anyone ever heard of this?  Please give me your thoughts.

  • Sounds like a hardware issue of some sort. Have you tried with a different video cable and/or monitor? Do you get the flickering if you go into the BIOS after a restart?
