    wtf, I don't get it.
    so it'll be fine for about 20-30 seconds then screen goes black for about 1 second then back to movie, then it'll flicker again 10-15sec later and so on.
    I am using VLC but I tried with Kmplayer as well as GOM player witht he same results. this only happens when the video is fullscreen.

    I uninstalled all drivers (ati) redownloaded and installs latest but still doing it. WTF :wtc:

    I am running a fresh copy of vista and screen saver is disabled btw

    trying to play AVI files. wmv files do not seem to cause the screen to flicker.
    fucking weird

    erm, not really sure. try k-lite codec pack maybe?
    maybe install the bundled player ti comes with too
    just kind of a shot in the dark, but it might be worth a shot :)
