I have an HP TouchSmart IQ506 and recently updated to Windows 7. Everything seemed OK bu I have a constatnt video screen flicker. Then downloaded and installed all the updates from the HP site. I still have the flicker.

 

Where do I go from here?

1. Install winrar (search google)

 

2. Download this driver "NVIDIA GeForce 9300M GS Graphics BIOS and Driver Update" this is The HP Vista x64 driver from the download drivers support web site for your computer 

 

ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softlib/software10/COL23935/pv-61864-1/sp37523.exe

 

3. Once you have copied this driver to you Local Hard drive, using file explorer, right click the file and extract to sp37523\...

 

4. Once you have extracted all the files from sp37523.exe, navigate to the \sp37523\src_Driver and run setup.exe

 

5. Your screen will go blank - don't be alarmed! then it will re-appear and you need to reboot.

 

6. Enjoy your PC! Make sure to add feedback to the drivers page so hp can fix this in their win7 drivers, oh and kudos,to me please cause i'm sick of this and hp have yet to address it...

Re: Screen flicker

i have a hp pavillion dv9000z (AMD turion x2, geforce go 7600 256mb) and get teh same flicker.  I have all the newest drivers and bios update.  One thing i found which may help, is that if i play a video (youtube, etc.) the flicker goes away.  If you just minimize, then you're good to go.

 

Although if anyone out there knows how to truly fix this bug, i'd greatly appreciate it.  thanks

Turn off NVIDIA PowerMizer.

Re: Screen flicker

I have the same exact problem, with HP touchsmart. Screen Flickers after installing Windows 7.
