    Screen flickering after turns back on


    After my display is turned off do to inactivity the display begins to flicker and presists through reboots. I can not reproduce the issue under windows 7.

    Has anyone else seen this and is there anything I can do about it.

    Note** I have installed the beta release of the NVIDIA drivers for Windows 8.

    I'd like to revive this question. I have a Dell Latitude E6510, i7 Q740 8GB DDR3, Nvidia NVS3100 Video card running Windows 8 Pro x64. I updated the drivers to Nvidia's current 302.82 WHQL. Whenever my screen, when it is screen locked, the display is disabled. As soon as I resume, the screen comes back on and I get a harsh flicker for about 4-5 minutes until it fades away. I didn't get this in WIN 7 either.

    Anybody have any input on this?

    Nvidia may not have updated their drivers for Windows 8 yet.

    I thought that this version is WHQL for WIN 8.

    I'm not really sure as I don't have Nvidia. Go to Device Manager and try updating/scan for hardware changes.
