    Is your monitor TFT or CRT, if CRT did you ensure the refresh rate is
    correct. Sometimes the default 60Hz is set after you install the drivers. (I
    don't if it will affect the games though, it seemed to have an effect on
    mine with tearing or flashing in dragon tiles)

    Yeah it is on 60 but its an old monitor and cant go any higher the problem
    only happened after installing the new graphics card so i assume the windows
    games isnt used to this new Graphics card

    This is a known bug with nVidia's drivers. I'm not sure if their beta
    drivers fix this issue or not, perhaps somebody who has gone through this
    issue can comment. :)
