There are complaints of the problem, but no resolutions to be found. A generic driver perhaps? Sorry if this is re-asking - I wouldn't unless I was at my ends. Get it here http: Reply Helpful Thread reply - more options Link to this Post. Van Nostrum I have been waiting for a fix for this, I'm beginning to believe it's never going to happen.
My screen flickers like there's no tomorrrow in Vista and The Mac Genius told me that there is nothing that can be done. He said that Apple will only support boot camp itself, not what's installed on it. I said, "But it's Apple's X Driver, shouldn't they support that? He shrugged and said there was nothing he could do. So, I found a post much like the one above that had me attempt to hack a fireGL driver into running in Vista on my x If I choose certain shades of bluish backgrounds, it makes it look as if the whole screen has dot crawl.
I have tried Power Strip and countless other hopeful remedies with no luck. I am by no means a novice Mac or PC user, but this problem is making me feel like one. Apple, please fix this! Thanks, I love apple and I love Macs, but my PC friends are laughing at the disco show that my awsome 17" display turns into every time I boot into Vista.
By the way, they don't laugh when I boot into Leopard because they know Vista is craptacular. Message was edited by: MacDaddyMacDaddy Message was edited by: I'm going to try again with a clean install.
If that doesn't work - oh well It went from occasional to constant after upgrading to Leopard and the new firmware. Gerry Simmons Gerry Simmons. My issue is that occasionally Windows XP will not boot! After the long Windows XP boot screen, the screen goes blank, backlight turns off, and When it does boot, the backlight comes back on, the cursor shows up and then the desktop.
On rare occasion, Windows just stays on the boot screen - forever, and I end up pressing the power button 'till the machine turns off. Desktops Speciality level out of ten: At home I connect to a Dell 24". On the Mac side all is fine full resolution, rotation, etc,etc. On the Vista side works OK but will not go to full resolution x or whatever Catalyst control panel recognizes full res but will not reset from x or whatever.
Any thoughts out there. Apple does not seem to give a hoot. Van Nostrum You're not alone. I have a similar machine MacBook Pro 17" 2. I have a bluish tint on my display and to compound the problem, since the driver is defective, I cannot project my display on any projector.
I was able to do so when Boot Camp was in beta mode, but not since I installed Leopard. It's disappointing that no one from Apple has responded to this post. And it is indicative of how much of a neophyte Apple is in trying to enter the true business community. MacBook's with Intel processors are a great start, but not if Apple doesn't quickly figure out how to support the Windows environment that it states it can with Boot Camp.
If Apple does not plan to take this seriously, then they should really be refunding the purchase price of the MacBook Pro and the software for those customers that bought it specifically because of the promise Apple made to support a Windows environment. And I would think that every customer who bought the machine specifically for Boot Camp has a great class action suit in the works. Step up and take some responsibility Apple! You're not dealing in a child's world anymore.
These are real issues from people that do work other than graphic design! I have a 17" MBP 2. In Boot Camp XP, common gray and blue backgrounds or any image with a fine matrix pattern or gradient flicker at a high frequency like it can't decide what color to display in each pixel. This is obviously a display driver issue since the same programs look just fine running under Parallels linked to the same Boot Camp install.
Most of the applications I want to use in Boot Camp XP have these flickering gray backgrounds, so I fear I am in danger of inducing a seizure! This renders my Boot Camp unusable for me. Hopefully Apple will acknowledge this issue and fix the driver soon.
