    Aero keeps blinking!

    Hi all,
    I'm experiencing a trouble with Aero that i've done all that i can but still
    i haven't fixed it. If someone can help me...
    I just installed Vista build 5384, and when it achieve Aero, my screen
    blinks and keeps doing it until i change appearence settings to Windows
    Basic. I also tried to fix it installing build 5386 x86 and 5386 x64. I also
    downloaded drivers from manufacturer, tried to use the Vista generic driver
    for my video card and nothing got right. Below is my hardware configuration
    (excuse me if i type something wrong, i really am neither a hardware expert
    nor an english expert):
    Memory: 512MB RAM DDR;
    Processor: AMD Semprom 2600 (1.6GHz) 64-bit;
    Video card: NVidia GeForce FX 5500 256MB - driver from NVidia's site for
    Windows Vista x86 (this is my actual version of Vista i'm using);
    My pc has what the Vista features site of microsoft asks for Premium Ready:
    video card Pixel Shader 2.0, WDDM, is greater than 128MB, processor greater
    than 1GHz, memory is 512MB, i have 40GB HD, now free 30GB.

    I ran the Windows Vista Upgrade Advisor and it told me that my pc is
    completely ready to Windows Vista, inclusive Windows Aero.

    I also tried all settings of video of refresh hate and resolution.

    My only trouble is with Aero, all of other things are OK! But Windows Vista
    without Aero isn't Windows Vista .

    What else could be?
    Thank's,
    ﮊµ£!ø

    Probably a problem with the nVidia driver. If you've got an ATI card spare
    pop that in the machine instead. The nVidia drivers are to be honest at
    this stage terrible.

    RE: Aero keeps blinking!

    "Vista Capable means basic on up! You need at least a 2gig CPU and 1gig of
    DDR memory to even think of "Aero" let alone "Glass" which is a great effect.
    I have had to replace my video card even though the CPU and memory are up to
    par.
    One weak link and you are out on Aero and Glass.......

    If that is true, I'm not the only one.
