    I have this strange error of B&W2 doing flickers every 2 or so minutes, the "when it does it" time is unstable anyway so I can't explain in great detail.

    The screen flickers, it will make a freeze and then it goes black for 2 seconds or sometimes even more, then it will freeze and go black and again until it stops or I do a "Control+Alt+Supr" command. Then the problem gets back again.

    I have tried a lot of fixes possible, for instance, I have tried to change the Nvidia control panel, thinking it was the antialias or anisotropic and such, but no, none of them are the problem. Not even VSync, Triple Buffer, Threaded Optimization or any other feature. So this isn't probably Nvidia's fault, but I'm not sure.

    I tried to do "Compatibility" run, from Windows 7, to Windows XP, none changed anything. "Running as admin" and even some like "Disable visual themes" too, but still flickers.

    My system can handle BW2 very easily, but why is it so unstable?! Can anyone please find a fix for this?

    Of course, these are my specs;

    Windows 7 64-bit
    Nvidia GTX 285
    Intel Q8400 Quad Core 2.66GHz
    4GB of RAM

    Yes, it has the latest drivers. Yes, I have the latest DirectX. My system does not overheat, GPU goes at 90c as average, which is fine until it reaches 105c

    Yes, it's only in this game.

    I had it too with Heroes 5 but I fixed that. The fix was strange, It had to "override antialiasing" and turn it to 16xCSAA. Tried with B&W2 just in case, didn't work.
