Geforce 8100 display issue. RRS feed

  • Question

  • I just built a new computer and installed the 64 bit version of Vista on it.  I downloaded and installed the display drivers from Nvidia for the Geforce 8100 that came on my new motherboard.  Everything is working just fine other then when I mouse to the very top of the desktop background the display begins to flash.  It does not do this if there is any programs active on the desktop, only when the desktop is being shown.  I have changed the refresh rate, the resolution and the colors.  When I change the colors to 16 instead of 32 bit the problem stops.  I have searched all over the web and have not been able to find anyone having a similar issue.  Any suggestions on what to try?  I have never experienced an issue like this before so any help would be appreciated.
