Bottom two thirds of screen flicker left-to-right when certain applications
are open, or several windows are lying on top of each other.

Particularly bad when viewing IE windows on top of full-screen iTunes.
Interestingly, only certain web pages cause the flicker to occur.

Games also bad.

"Dull" software like Word and Exel all fine. Screen is perfectly stable.

Contacted GeForce and Formac, each of whom blamed the other and were of no
use whatsoever.

Am running pretty new PC, Intel 4 with 1GB RAM plus 128MB graphics RAM.
Loads of HD space remaining. OP is XP.

Many thanks for any help!

Do you have...

the latest graphics drivers from www.nvidia.com?
the latest drivers for the monitor from Formac?
the latest version of DirectX from www.microsoft.com/directx?

What resolution are you running at?
What refresh rate are you running at?

Hello,

I'm pretty sure I'm running the latest drivers but I'll double-check.

Meantime, resolution is 1600x1200 and refresh rate is 60Hz.

Many thx

Flicker is very common with 60 Hz refresh rate, your eye can
see that fast. Also it is in sync with the lights.
At 1600x1200 you may not be able to run faster, see if you
can get 70 or 75 Hz, that will reduce or eliminate the
flicker. You may want/need to reduce resolution one step
below the 1600 to 1280x1024 or what ever is supported by the
combination of your graphics card and monitor.

I've been fighting that darn flicker since August. Every other sight I went
to would jump, flash, flicker everytime I crossed a link and then I finally
figured out it was Macromedia Flash ads on the sites...version 7 or greater.
Today I checked out there support site and they've posted all the older
versions of flash from 2 thru 6 and of course 7+. They say it's for...get
this.... testing purposes...yeah. I'm sure they've had a few complaints with
some configurations. I loaded Flash ver. 6+....no more flicker. Shockwave 10
works great.
I'm not sure that's your problem but... hope this helps.
