I'm getting significant "screen flicker" on my WinXP-GeForce7600GS system. I've updated the driver to 163.75 and still get the flicker.

My system shows the 7600 GS BIOS as "version 5.73.22.18.52". Should I update this BIOS? If so, where can I get an update? I see no BIOS artifacts at http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-us .

Fyi, this flicker may or may not be specific to the virtual desktop ( http://enablevirtualdesktop.com/virtualdesktop/index.htm ) that I run...but I'm not sure.

Re: More than just a Flickering problem; web-browser (Opera 9.23) graphics crap out and start breaking lots of graphical things in my view to the point that I have to reboot my system.

I'd like to know where to dowload an updated BIOS and how to update my video card with said BIOS (the update procedure is not clear to me--just run an executable) to see if said update (if any) fixes anything.
