Display keeps blinking on and off...

Hey guys running a MSI NF980-G65 + a GTX 260 throught HDMI
2 main partitions windows 7 64bit and Vista sp1 32bit both premium.
new monitor/tv Hannspree 28" BOBO Deluxe.

ok 7 partition runs flawless for the most part. BUT my vista 32bit one is giving me issues, the display will randomly keep blinking from on to off, display...black screen and sometimes display...blue screen.

I have checked all connections, reseated GPU i can't figure it out.
Quick question, do i have to install mobo chipset drivers on both partitions? so far i've only installed them on the 7 one.

Here is were it really gets bizarre, I also have my oldschool XBOX hooked up to it through S-video and it does the same thing!! on, off, on, off, display,blue screen.
it happened once on the 7 partition and hasn't again. Am i looking at a BAD monitor?

More about display blinking
  1. Repeated flashing like strobe style or does it turn off for a second and turn back on, then not do it again for 30 minutes or an hour?
  2. turn off for a second then on, somewhat random timing but repeatedly from boot up into windows, on...off...on.................off...on..............off...on...........................off...on..............off...on...................off...on............................off...on..............
    same for S-video XBOX completely destroying any theories of faulty monitor or driver issue or cable issue...(sigh)
