Ok guys i m experiencing a weird problem...everything started some days ago. i was getting some blue screens under XP, saying me that the problem is located in the video card, and it was suggesting to update/reinstall drivers. weird tho coz i was always using those drivers (28.32 for my geforce 2 gts). Ok so i uninstall them, and i instal the 43.95 ones. then my monitor started turning off and on all of a sudden...my monitor power cable is ok. everything seems to be ok. i have even formatted my hd, and i installed directx 9.0a, then the 43.95 ones.

and guess what. while i was still having the xp drivers, no problems at all. and now i m getting that flashing again:(

any ideas?

Did you say 43.95?!?!

Can I assume that is a typo and you meant to say 43.45 set that came out yesterday? (I'm not trying to be a prick, it's just if there is a new set out there I wanna get it! ;) )

What kind of monitor and what is the refresh rate on it? Mebbe the last set of XP dets you used didn't recognize/set the refresh correctly? (More possible if'n you have an older monitor)
