  1. Hello, I bought a Dell Inspiron e1505 last summer. I downgraded from Vista to XP, as I was experiencing performance issues when gaming. However, starting a couple months ago, my screen started to flicker, and this only happened when I played games. After the screen flickered, I would lose anywhere between 10-30 fps. After 10 or so minutes, the screen would flicker again, and everything would be back to normal. This would keep happening over and over again, good performance, to bad, back to good, etc etc and has become annoying. If anyone has experienced this same problem or know how to fix it, please help me.
    Thanks!
