    well, 1st check you have optimum resolution and refresh rate for your monitor. Or at least change it to the minimum settings, say 640x480 16 bit colour. See if the problem persists. If it goes away then it may be drivers not fully supporting the higher resolutions and refresh rates

    as it's happening when it gets into windows, probably a software/ driver issue, K,jacko has the idea, reinstalling the drivers couldn't hurt.
