Desktop Flicker durring background change
Jan 9, 2010, 1:26 PM
I have an ATI HD 5870 from sapphire.
Using ccc 9.12
Windows 7 H.P.
during the flipping of desktop backgrounds, i get an area toward the top right of my display that is scrambled or flickers.
I had a 5850 and this didnt happen, and it was not happening when i first got this 5870 anyway.
The only thing i have done was change the dvi port the monitor was on.
I have made sure it was tight and screwed in, but it still happens.
I do know that it doesnt affect any games or browsers (any other program)
Anyone seen this activity?

Well, I guess I typed too soon, as I have started to see the flicker on chrome in the 1 min intervals my desktop swap is set to.
I am going to play some more games and see if it happens there too.
