Ive had the same problem. What happens to me is that i would click on
something (like a desktop icon), the screen will flash and then come back,
and it will keep doing that. I tried to to do a system restore that helped.
But then another problem arrised. I now cannot view ANY videos. The audio
works fine, but no video. dont know where to go from here.
System Specs:
Dell Dimension 8200 with Nvidia GeForce4 TI4600
