    Hi,
    I have installed last Leopard bootcamp drivers and I have always a flickering screen problem running XP.
    - The problem does not appears in Leopard, then it seems not to be an harware problem.
    - The description is that some color (especially some blue/gray) are displaying with flickering effect.

    I have tried to install new ATI drivers as well as previous one for bootcamp 1.2,1.3, ... but I haven't succeed to remove this flickering effect.

    Question:
    - Other MaBookPro owner have also this problem ?
    - If not, may someone send me the ATI drivers it use in order I can test it ?

    Thanks and best regards,
    Etienne

    I had that problem with my MBP pro with 8600M , what I did is, I went to the nvidia control panel and in energy saving mode there was an option that said something like "Always use less energy for screen" or somerthing like that, unticked that and it dissapeared
