Default Re: Frequesnt screen flickers and occasional os crash

I am on a GO 7600 and i think the suggestion worked, the only problem is that in case of too many windows (i think i can call it an overload of the gpu?(sorry for my english)) some windows become black(black screen bug) but is less annoying that the continuos black flashing

Default Re: Frequent screen flickers and occasional os crash

I'm using an LG L2000C 20" LCD and an MSI 7300GT graphics card, with nvidia drivers 100.14.11. I have a problem with flickering which occurs only when I use DVI output and set the resolution to 1600x1200. The flicker effect is similar to the type of flicker you get when you use a cellphone near a CRT monitor. There is no flicker using Analog, and all resolutions lower than 1600x1200 are ok using DVI. This problem occurs under Windows XP as well.

After some googling, I found out that under Windows XP, I can use the nvidia control panel to set "CVT reduced blanking". This solves the problem under Windows.

So I tried to modify the timings under linux, first by setting
Option      "ExactModeTimingsDVI"  "true"
in xorg.conf, then based on the nvidia CP settings, I tried using this modeline:
Modeline "1600x1200_60" 130.0025   1600 1648 1680 1760   1200 1203 1207 1235  -HSync +Vsync
But the flickering is still there.

I also tried using the CVT calculator, which gives a modeline
# 1600x1200 @ 60.00 Hz Reduced Blank (CVT)
  #   field rate 59.92 Hz; hsync: 74.01 kHz; pclk: 130.25 MHz
  Modeline "1600x1200_60.00_rb"  130.25  1600 1648 1680 1760  1200 1203 1207 1235  +HSync -Vsync
I have tried using pci=nommconf and idle=poll kernel parameters too.
But still no luck.

Any ideas?
