Help Flashing screen?

by Iggiemo / May 12, 2009 5:10 AM PDT

I have a HP a6330f Desktop AMD Athlon 64 X 2 Dual Core 5600+ 2.8 GHz, 3.0 GB RAM, 32 Bit OS, Vista Home Prem Serv Pack 1, Verizon DSL for internet. Randomly a little box pops up in the lower right side of the screen stating "ANALOG", the the screen flashes on and off. I try to reboot most of the time it continues to flash on and off but does reboot. It does eventually stop but then starts up again at any random moment. I have a NVIDIA GeoForce 6150SE nforce 430 video card. I bought this system 1 yr ago Jan. Does the Video card need replacing already?!

thanks for the updating driver info. I had tried that already. It ended up being an issue with the monitors power source. I replaced it and am up and running again. Thanks again.
