View Full Version : Screen flashes when using the Nvidia system tray utility...

12-17-03, 11:04 AM
On a new system I am setting up at work I have noticed that anytime I click on the Nvidia system tray utility the screen flashes (like when video is turned off and on). It also flashes when opening the Display Properties control panel, open the advanced settings, or close any of those. Some of the flashes are much quicker than others, but it still happens.

Is there some setting I need to change to stop this or what?

This system is using a GeForce4 MX 440 and te latest Forceware drivers. This is on a clean install of WinXP. MSI K7D Master Motherboard. I have also seen this on various Dell models (when using Nvidia cards of course). Those had FX 5200 cards I think, and were using Detonator 45.xx drivers at the time.

Any help is appreciated!

Your problem is also happening to my 5900 video card.

I have noticed that ever since I actually started using the second monitor from that card, it has ceased the stupid blinky thing. Of course, that isn't what I'd call a fix...
