Refresh rate problem? (screen flickers)[BF3]

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
This is the first game I've had this problem with, and I'm not sure what's wrong. When I start a multiplayer game, the screen flickers, like the refresh rate is wrong. In my nvidia control panel, the res is 1920x1080 and 59Hz. The game options are either 1920x1080 at 59.94Hz or 60Hz. I've tried both and it's the same. But if I alt-tab out and go to the control panel, click the 1920x1080 60Hz, it works fine in the game. But it keeps saying it's 59Hz. lalala?

2500k at 4.2
Two 560 Tis @ 950 clock.

So I tried taking the overclock off of the cards and setting them at reference speeds to try and fix the crashing I've been getting on single player and co-op and that didn't seem to help either. In fact, for some weird reason, other things like plants and trees started to flicker.

Any insihht? I dunno, I can get it to work well enough usually with just changing the setting in the control panel.

Does it flash green sometimes? That happens to me.

Yeah the flashing green and different colors happened a lot in the BETA, Its because of the new drivers that Nvidia rolled out for BF3 Beta and BF3 Full

Actually, no. I did get that green flashing during the alpha and beta as well. I think it's happened a couple of times in the final version, but this is like the refresh rates don't match. Like when you record the tv with a camera, and you get that flickering. It's a constant black flicker.

Did u guys manage to solve this?

Got the same problem i start the game and at some point the screen begins to flicker. Sometimes shadows of trees look like they get sticked to the screen lol.

Tabbing out of the game and going back in it can solve it most of the time. But it always comes back, mostly when changing server.

I didnt have this issue with the BETA only with Final release how lame
