Flashes the screen like?

If you reinstall Windows XP starts to blink the screen. The flashing usually begins when you turn the video player or Skype. At first sinned on the Assembly of Windows, but reinstallation on another did not help. It became even worse. Installed the driver from the video from the website of the manufacturer, installed fresh codecs K-Lite. Set the frequency to 70 and 72 (maximum at its highest resolution), reset the CMOS memory. It's not the monitor, because when connected to the netbook, he's not blinking. Probably video card, but confused that when last reinstall install codecs delivered from blinking when a video is playing, but when calling on Skype blinking appeared. Now after installing the other Windows flashing became more frequent. I think to put a Fedora and see how it is with Linux will behave. If anybody had such experience?

Try use other card, I have a similar problem was when it overheated.
Yes, this version is too. The cooler on video is often not spinning or spinning slowly, then slowing down, then stopping. Will lubricate. As for the replacement — now sold cheap AGP graphics card? The system is so old and easier to change than something to buy. - carlotta_Muller32 commented on October 8th 19 at 00:56

UPD: Demolished the driver completely. On the inclusion of films don't blink now, but you know how flawed the quality of the images, jump, etc. when not driver video.
drive from a video card(which is complete) left? try to put with his driver. - carlotta_Muller32 commented on October 8th 19 at 00:58

The Gроблема most likely with drivers. also observed before at such an on GF7800 GS — blink occurred at the time of the initialization of the overlay. here is how dare not remember. Tolley driver other put felts what that tick in rivatuner or similar program.
still it can be connected with the second monitor/TV output

clean out all remnants of the driver and put WHQL
to boot with a LiveCD and check the cause of the failure

reached a remission, by turning off the overlay: start, run, dxdiag to disable directdraw.
