Games causing monitor to flicker all of a sudden... Reasons??

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hey everyone, quick question.

Haven't gamed since the weekend but when I went to play Super Meat Boy today I noticed a lot of flickering at parts of the screen... It wasn't happening in Braid but it's happening in WoW. Really badly... Could possibly be happening in more games I'll have to check.

I haven't changed any settings or installed anything new or updated anything and yesterday it was running fine... So any ideas guys??

Thanks

Have you ruled out Drivers? Unstable OC? etc.
We need more details.

Check how many games it happens with. It might be drivers or an unstable overclock. Also, see if it happens with crossfire disabled.

It isn't an unstable OC as they're both set to default... I'm pretty sure it isn't drivers as I haven't touched those in ages... How would I check this? I just disabled crossfire in CCC and it completely freaked out. My multimonitor setup is only on one screen now and the resolution is at 800x600... and It started saying stuff about how no drivers were found. Now I don't even have an option to turn crossfire on lol. Before I did this though I disabled V-sync in Warcraft and it stopped flickering and when I ran super meat boy in windowed mode it'd also stop flickering.

Interesting. Sounds to me like a driver issue lol.

Hi kidshenlong. It would be a good idea if you were to test each of your graphics cards individually to see if you have the issues with only of them. Also, if running multiple monitors try running one at a time.

Thanks for the advice guys. Was the drivers. Uninstalled CCC and driver swept all my ATI drivers... Then reinstalled still wasn't working. Then I randomly saw that my 4890's were disabled in device manager. Enabled them and they worked perfectly now!
