    Try uninstalling the gfx driver from safe mode with http://www.wagnardmobile.com/DDU/
    Then reboot to Windows and lit it load its default driver. See if all is good up to that point.

  3. Iv done that and it work ok with default driver. Which leads me to think it's a driver compatibility problem.

    You won't know until you download the driver again and install it again. But there have been several folks on the forum that have had problems with the Omega driver. It might just be they they don't properly uninstall the old driver first.

    I would install the driver again and see if the problem is gone. If so, then it was an old driver conflict. If the problem persists, I'd do DDU again and install the previous driver.
