so I just did an OS format on my Aspire 4930..
I formatted Vista to XP because of obvious reasons.

but, after I installed all my drivers proper,
everytime at startup, my monitor would blink once to black,
but only about one second, even less..

it would not blink again for the rest of the session though.
but, when I uninstalled the VGA Intel driver to see if it had any effect,
the monitor didn't blink. it seems that the driver is the problem, yeah?

but I tried installing two versions and they're just the same.
what I want to ask is:

1) will it have any long-term effect?
2) is the monitor adjusting to anything; refresh rate, etc?
3) can I repair this?

thanks very much in advance..:thumbsup:

I believe that's routine...my system does it as files begin to load.

If I thought about it long, I would suppose that it's the change from the default driver driver to the installed chipset video driver...but I would probably be wrong.

I don't consider it worth worrying over...
