Hello I am haivng the same issue, with every new game I install, it is either
Flickering towards my background
or I just see the windows borders when I try playing it in windows.
- Changing my Resolution back doesn't help
- I updated everything to its current
- I thought it was Java, and somewhat still think that.
- I restored all my graphics settings on my Nvidia 9800 GX2
I am at a breaking point of my games running in black screen, and ready to take a bat to my graphics card.
