I have build, before a week my new computer and now I have one problem..
First of all my computer consisting by::

Asus Crosshair IV Formula AMD 890FX
AMD Phenom II X6 Six Core 1090T Black Edition 3.20GHz
Corsair XMS3 8GB (4x2GB) 1600MHz Dual Channel
Sapphire ATI Radeon HD 5970 2048MB
2 x APACER A7202 128GB A7 TURBO SSD (RAID 0)
1 x Western Digital 1.5TB
LG W2486L-PF 24'' LED
Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit (Original box)

Now, the computer works perfect. I play mw2 and dirty and far cry perfect at 1080p, but my problem is that,
some times the display is flashing for 3-4 seconds and it's come back. Even If I don't play any game, the screen flashing.
I have calculating the time that it's flash and it's about 15-30mins. I run 3dMarks and BurnITest success. I don't have any other ideas. I also check the ram with MemTest and I have test my cpu with the Approximate Value Pi. I don't have any others ideas so, please guys let me know if someone knows any ideas!!!!!!!!
Thank you in advance!!!!!!

It may still be a driver issue,try doing a clean install of your driver,here is how
1_Download and install "Driver sweeper" from and install
2_Go to add/remove programs and uninstall the driver and reboot
3_Boot to safe mode and open driver sweeper,then click on ATI and then click on clean
4_Reboot and boot normally to windows and install the new drivers after that you need to restart,and its done

If you continue having problems with 10.5, try switching to 10.4 and see if that fixes it (at least for now).

Ok guys. Thank you for all your help my problem is solved. It is most unlikely problem I noticed so far. In my room I have one air - condition that has a problem. For some time we trying to find the problem of air - condition but nothing. The problem of the air condition it's that every time at 10 min 20 min or 1 hour (some times takes 5 hours to do that ) stop freezing the room. When I was finished, my computer, I realise that every time that the air condition make that noise,and stop working, the display flashing. Now, I have tested them and I'm 100% sure that the problem is the air - condition. I use my computers since upload this post without the air - condition and works perfect. Now I test them with the air - condition, and gust what?? At the time that air - conditions make the problem the display flashing. It seems as a problem in the circuit of the air - condition and blocks electricity form all over the house. I've seen more and more strange problem, because I worked in an engineering company. But that, has overcome all the others.!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Thank you for all your help!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

That's the true. Technicals, have come and check the air-condition. I was right. The circuit has a problem and need to be replace . I have never heard about such kind of problems in my life :D :D :D  :p :p :p
