Screen flickering black for a few seconds.

Hi all

Had this problem a few months an only now getting bugged by it.

I've got a 4890 graphics card and every few weeks it decides that when I scroll my mouse or change web pages of perform a search on a web page it will flicker to a black screen before displaying the image.

If I reinstall the drivers it usually sorts it out but a couple of weeks later it happens again.

Any suggestions to fix this permanently appreciated.

Should have mentioned - it also flickers if I move the mouse...


Still causing problems - any ideas :-)

Check 'smooth scrolling' is selected in IE, tools, internet option and 'advanced' tab.

Usually use firefox - I just checked & smooth scrolling wasnt selected in firefox. Fingers crossed that does the trick - cheers.
