Weird Problem with PowerColor 9700 Pro

Its not a huge problem, but its quite annoying. Every once in a while (once a week to twice a week), when I start up a DirectX game, my monitor will flicker twice, then go back to desktop. The game will still be in minimized in the taskbar, and when i click to maximize again, same flickering. This is always fixed with a reinstallation of the 3.10's (4.1's dont like my system and i dont like the performance), but it still occurs once in a while. Any possible fixes to permanantly make this problem go away? Thanks

Was your old card a Nvidia card and did you do a fresh install of the OS or MAKE SURE you got rid of all the old drivers?
