nVidia flicker/screen flashing black problem....
I've seen some other posts similiar to this and I'm wondering if
anyone can help. I've got a PNY 4800ti and am presently having a
problem with screen flicker. At boot up and ONLY in 2D apps (desktop,

PNY and NO resolution. Any help or suggestions would be greatly
appreciated. Thanks in advance.
