Screen Shiver on Dell Inspiron

I've been using my Inspiron 9400 notebook a lot lately, as I've been working out of the office. I've started noticing a 'screen shiver' or flicker, every 4-5 minutes.

It has a Geforce 7900GS which drives the 17 inch LCD. I don't think it's a driver problem, as it happens when I'm running Windows _and_ Linux. Has this happened to any other Inspiron users?

I'm seeing the same happening with my 9400. I upgraded from the X1400 to the 7900GS, and started to see the shiver afterwards. Haven't tried switching back to the X1400 to see if it goed away.

Did you ever solve it?

Yep. The problem solved itself with the latest drivers from nvidia.
