Windows 7 x64 Areo Lockup

The setup..
  Fresh install Win7 x64 dual monitor setup on a Nvidia Quadro FX-580 with latest drivers.
  Dell T3500 with Xeon, 12gb Ram, Quadro FX-580

The error..

When using a Win7 Areo theme the pc will lock up and show a pretty neat rainbow effect after a few minutes no matter if it is idle or being used. If i turn off the Aero theme the PC is fine till the cows come home. It just when i select a Aero Theme.

I uninstalled the older Nvidia drivers and did a fresh install of the newest one's
Same issue. Updated the Bios, chipset and just about every other driver avalable.

Thanks
Dave

Check this article: http://winaero.com/comment.php?comment.news.13 - do you have this utility running?  There seems to have been a bug in it.

I have no 3rd party themes or utilities running that would enhance the display output.

I would try a different video card - this behavior doesn't sound normal.
