Unhappy 185.18.31 screen instant flicker

after driver version 180.60 in every new driver i try, i have the same problem..

when powermizer reaches the max frequency or leaves max frequency (in these transitions) the screen flickers instantly..

so i'm stuck with driver version 180.60

my card is a GeForce 8600m GT

if anyone knows something - how can i fix this, please help

If you don't care about energy consumption and heat, you could just set the powerlevel to max in nvidia-settings (at least in th 190.x drivers).
If that's too hot/fast you can underclock with nvclock, and then it'll stay at that "reduced max level".

Of course that's not a fix but only an ugly workaround....
