Exclamation Battlefield Bad Company 2 - Screen Flickering

Since reinstalling windows 7 64bit after upgrading to an SSD , I now get black flickering during game play on any setting but low. mid or high just make it unplayable due to the flickering.

As i have reinstalled windows from fresh and installed the latest nvidia drivers and windows updates ect.

doing a quick google search the problem only appears to be with ati cards? but as mines nvidia.

the known fix of changing settings to and from for vsync and hhob or something dosnt work.


anyone else getting this problem? before the reinstall i had it set to high with no issues.

also sometimes unable to connect to ea server, retype my password and login ok but cant get any servers.

Spec:
WIn 7 64bit
Intel core 2 quad
Nvidia 8800GTXUltra in SLI "2 cards"
asus rampage 2 680i sli chipset
8 gig OCZ flex ram
60 vertex 2 ssd

The flickering is the 270.61 driver. Install 266.58 back. I have the same issue. I retried many times reinstalling 270.61, so I am pretty sure it is the issue.

Also, I'm not sure why it doesn't work, but the auto log-in doesn't remember my password right anymore either.

I had the same problem and rolled back, problem is gone. It didn't mess up my password, thank god.

I just updated from 266 to 270 because of screen flickering. Still does it for me.

I had the same issue with upgrading my dirvers - I removed them and let Windows Updater find me the ones it is using (not 270) my driver version says its 8.17.12.6724 from Feb 23 2011 and my BF:BC2 is working fine once again.

Don't know if that helps or not ... but I wish you luck!
