Hello all,

I recently purchased a Zotac Nvidia 430 graphics card to upgrade my htpc. I have a desire to use 3D in the future and the 430 seems to do well at supporting this.

After struggling to get it to work successfully in my HTPC running Windows 7 I discovered that the screen will go black, as if the TV were disconnected, momentarily, and then come back on.

This happens consistently when I open a video using VLC or close the video. It also happens randomly (and very frustratingly) during viewing of the video.

The problem I'm describing is also outlined in this thread on Nvidia's website:

I'm not sure what could be causing this, and I don't really know what else to trouble shoot. When I switch back to my original configuration (AMD 4200 integrated graphics) there are no issues with picture.

Any advice?

Thanks in advance!

i have an ati 6670 and a similar thing happened to me, albeit on an LCD TV connected through a receiver. it has gotten much better in the last few months with newer drivers, but can happen occasionally.

see my thread: http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showthread.php?t=1390405
for me, updated drivers worked, for others they went backwards.

are you connecting through a receiver?

note: the post above is my opinion. as such, when reading any recommendations from me, please do you research and seek out other recommendations and make up your own mind on your next course of action. i mean, most reasonable adults should know that, but it seems this should be stated anyways.
