8600M GT + Windows 7 (Issues)

Hi:

Yesterday I updated my laptop with Windows 7 RTM. Then I installed the NVIDIA drivers (the one on their website), after I installed the drivers and restarted my notebook, the screen began to flicker. Then I uninstalled the driver and the flickering stopped. I tried with different drivers (I think I tried 7 of them, including some 190.XX and 180.XX drivers from this page), and also DOX drivers but the problem remains. Can you guys help me out with this issue?

BTW I have an Acer Aspire 5920G-6574 with a GeForce 8600M GT 512MB DDR2.

Thanks in advance and have a great day

Same issue here.

I've a Toshiba Satego X200 (also 8600GT).

If someone has a solution or can tell us witch driver to take, we would really appreciate it.

Kind Regards

I also have the same issues. Flickering screens when I refresh. Worse is when I play games, after a while, the game suddenly becomes very blur for some weird reason. Using Vista 32bit btw.

the flickering is caused by the change in clock speed due to powermizer.

you can choose either way:

workaround: disable powermizer

permanent fix: downgrade VGA BIOS

my mistake it'S 8700GT, but same error.

Cool, somebody who can resolve this :)

Can you tell us the downside of disabling powermizer (and how to do this)?

Or how to downgrade the VGA BIOS?

Can a solution in future drivers be awaited?

Thanks in advance
