As the title says, I just picked up a GTX 570 SC and I installed it, installed the drivers and my primary monitor is flickering. I first installed the 266.58 drivers and after that tried the beta drivers from March first, to no avail. Any idea whats causing this? The flicker occurs every 5-10 seconds. If it's of any importance, I had an Ati HD 4890 before.
I think jryan has it. There are probably remnants of radeon on your system. Did you do a complete driver sweep like with Driver Cleaner Pro? And /then/ install the new drivers? Or did you just install the new drivers "over top" the old ones?
I have played some Shogun 2 after installing the card, but I had to play in window mode so I could drag it onto my second monitor because I cant play anything on my primary monitor due to the flickering. The generic windows drivers fix the problem, but they're not acceptable. Two flickers happen back to back and then that process repeats every 5-10 seconds. It seems to be random. Im starting to think it may be the card. Thinking about returning this card and getting a 6970.
