After installing the latest driver a couple days back I have experienced moments where my main monitor will flash to black and flash back to the game.

While playing Natural Selection 2 it did it and my monitor actually switched off. Upon restart I checked my nividia settings and the SLI by default. I turned it back and and while playing the witcher 2 it happened twice.

I constantly watching my temps and the highest I've gotten was 87 88 which is a good 10 under the maximum.

I'm thinking about uninstalling and reinstalling the drivers. I just wanted to see if anyone had any insight as too what maybe occurring.

Thanks as always.

Sounds more like a software issue, unless there's a correspondence between the temps and the black flashes?

Do you have the cards overclocked? If so, it could be a bad overclock, although it'd probably CTD rather than flash black a few times.

I'd suggest uninstalling and reinstalling drivers, and if that doesn't fix it, then install the older drivers that did work and if it does work fine with the older drivers then there's just an issue with the newer drivers not liking your setup

Ok uninstalled and reinstalled the current driver. Started up the witcher 2 and I've already had to quick flashes again to black screen.

If it helps I have a fresh windows install and c drive as of my OC a week ago.
