    alienware x51 and pny geforce gtx 660ti screen flicker ???


    HI all i have a pny geforce gtx 660ti with the latest nvidia drivers and when i'm watching videos with netflix app on windows 8.1, I will drag the app to my high def TV and watch them there, as soon as i'm done watching and i close the app my main monitor will flicker briefly and once that is done it will not do it again till i watch another show on my HDTV. Any reason why this would happen and is it anything to worry about?

    I think it's nothing to worry about it's probably just because it's changing the monitor it's displaying to, if you're watching it in full-screen this would also make sense.

    Come to think of it I've had this exact issue before from the sound of your description, is there another way you could describe this " flickering " ? as in, how long it lasts or if the monitor goes pure black then back to perfectly displaying the desktop or is it a transparent kind of flicker?

    I still say it's probably nothing to worry about if it doesn't happen under any other circumstance.
