Default Windows XP Pro dissapears and is eventually replaced by a blankscreen!!!


After i logged into Windows XP Pro SP3, the desktop disapeared after
about 5 seconds and was replaced by a two tone bright pulsating screen
which went black. This would occur after i rebooted. I am using the
Nvidia 180.48 drivers.

Downloading and reinstalling the driver seems to have fixed it...

Did anyone else experienced this? What is going on? Is my video card
