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, screen and sometimes 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?

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?

turn off for a second then on, somewhat random timing but repeatedly from boot up into windows,
same for S-video XBOX completely destroying any theories of faulty monitor or driver issue or cable issue...(sigh)
