Black Screen Flashing While Using Aero

Hi,

when my windows 7 ultimate computer starts up, the screen flashes black, just for a second which is ok. But if i enable aero and use the aero effects then the computer screen flashes black for a second again, everytime i use any aero effect! e.g minimize, thumbnails, show desktop, open files.

I upgraded from windows vista.

my cousins also have windows 7 ultimate and they use the aero effects without any problems.
their computer has A NVIDA G-Force, but not sure about the model, although it will be quite new because they bought their computer a week ago.

is it because of my graphics card? i checked the windows 7 upgrade advisor and it said my graphics card is compatible.

my graphics card is :

VIA Chrome9 HC IGP Family WDDM, and i have a Intel Core 2 Duo E4300 @ 1.8Ghz(i've been meaning to overclock but my mobo's rubbish :$)

  1. i take it as you have an integrated graphics chip? would you be able to activate the basic theme and acces to the internet and look for latest drivers for windows 7?it might help.
  2. Killahk,

    It sounds as though your issue could indeed be related to your graphics card or driver. Have you installed the latest updated driver certified for Windows 7? Also, you may want to try an alternate graphics card to see if that resolves the issue.
