nVidia GT430, GTX570 and Samsung Monitor Flickering on Windows 7 x64

A couple of months ago, I bought two cards to program in CUDA, a Gigabyte GT430 and a EVGA GTX570.

Since then my monitor (a Samsung 223BW) had been flickering like hell every time I turned it on or it came back from stand-by.

I’m running Windows 7 (64 bits).

Well, it appears the solution to this problem is very simple:

  1. Go to the Samsung support site and download the drivers for the 223BW monitor (http://www.samsung.com/us/support/downloads/lcd/LS22MEVSFY/XAA)
  2. Connect the monitor to the card and port of your choice.
  3. Install the previously download drivers and select the correct card and port into which the monitor is now connected. (Be aware that a VGA port is ‘Analog’ and HDMI/DVI are ‘Digital’, when the installer asks you that question)
  4. No more flickering!!! 😀

Well, I hope this helps. Have fun programming (and finally resting your eyes ;))
