post #11 of 15
Thread Starter 
This the reply I got from XFX customer support:


[Me]] I`m seeing screen flickering issues when playing games. I purchased this product yesterday only. It flickers on boot upscreen, windows 7 logo screen and in games.

[XFX staff] HI, Please find suppliers for replace, thanks!

So??

I will still try to uninstall and reinstall drivers if not will get it replaced.

Reinstall windows before getting it replaced. You didn't properly remove the nvidia drivers first, so I'd try that one out too.

I took my system to the shop to have it tested and there wasn't any screen flickering with their monitor. Hence, they didn't replace it. But, when I came back to my place, I still see a bit of flickering in COD4 MP game but no more during boot up.

My monitor(View sonic 17 Inch LCD) works fine with my old gpu(Nvidia GT 220) but not with this new GPU.

I'm just having all issues since I purchased this new GPU. Really dishearted.
