Default Vista RC1-monitor keeps flickering???

i'm on RC1 right now, and my monitor keeps flickering. mainly when something changes, or i open a program...i dont even know. It flickers...goes black for a second and comes back. it's like when you change your screen resolution...how the monitor flickers. but the resolution stays the same.

i'm at 1280x1024 at 60hz, i have aero enabled.....

can anyone diagnose the problem? this is getting annoying.

try increasing the refresh rate. 60hz is just way too small.

Raise the refresh rate, if that doesn't work try disabling Aero.
