Default Applications flash white in windows 7 RC 7100 - 10-07-2009, 04:51 AM

I have been using the windows 7 RC for about 3 months now and recently reinstalled due to a virus that slipped past avast. When I use various applications such as firefox, wmp or windows explorer it will occasionally flash white. My desktop also flashes white when I drag around an application. I think it might be a driver issue but Im not sure.

When you're using a Microsoft RC, there truly are no guarantees. I've been using W7 Ultimate RTM and it does nothing of the sort. Plus, it's possible that you are using beta Intel drivers that came with the RC.

True mercy is never earned.

Kile S.,
It does sound as there may be a driver compatibility issue that may be causing the graphical issues you experience. What is your graphics card and what drivers are you using with Windows 7 RC?
Also Windows 7 will be officially released later this month. One of the most significant improvements in the final version of Win 7 is found in the area of driver support. In the meantime, Microsoft does have an official Windows 7 RC Support Forum located here Windows 7 Category . It is supported by product specialists as well as engineers and support teams. You may want to also check the threads available there for additional assistance and feedback.

I have the gma 950 graphics card and after the drivers that come with the RC didn't work. When I started having the problem I changed my drivers to the ones on dells website and I'm still having the same problems.

I don't recall seeing such behavior on my Mini. Don't see anything like that with RTM either.
