    Anyone else have this problem? When I use ctrl+x or +c or +v my left monitor flickers. I have dual 2007WFP's. The first display is hooked up VGA and the second is DVI on an NVIDIA Geforce 7600 video card. It also happens when I right click on folders sometimes too. odd.

    Do you have any settings in your nVidia control panel that makes the mouse pointer flash when you press a certain key combination, or anything like that?

    Or a video card with 1 DVI and 1 VGA. Those are a dime a dozen nowadays, and they work very well. If your computer is old enough that you don't have a dual-head video card, chances are your video card needs an upgrade anyway.

    No see that's what I think is the problem now. THe video card I have now is 1 DVI and 1 VGA. But the monitor on the VGA keeps flickering when I use CTRL or right click on something. So fustrating. :mad:

    Oh. I thought you meant that you had two video cards, one being an older model with only a VGA port.

    It still sounds like your nVidia drivers are getting in the way. Are your screens matched for resolution and refresh rate?
