Screen Flashes Black When Xp Desktop Loads and during high periods of I/O activity.
Posted on 2004-08-23
Hi, Im wondering if anyone out there is experiencing the same problems as me on this one. Here are my system specs:
ECS L7VTA PCB v1.1 (using bios 1.7j)
AMD Athlon XP 2500+ (Barton)
512Mb DDR 333
Nvidia GeForce 440Mx (with latest drivers)
Via hyperion 4 in 1 chipset (with latest v4.53 drivers)
Overview of the problem:
When XP reaches the desktop, the screen flashes, as if changing to an incompatible resolution, then returns back to the normal desktop, the same happens when I right click on the Nvidia settings icon in the task tray or when the system is under heavy I/O.
In addition to this i think that this is having a 'knock on' effect on my other drivers, eg errors keep cropping up in Cmuda.sys (CMedia AC97 audio using newst drivers also), and asyncmac.sys (one of the windows RAS drivers), and Ndis.sys (network driver).
At present I am at a loss, any help will me much appreciated.
