I recently built a computer with a GeForce FX5500 graphics card in it. It's running fine except for one minor, but very VERY annoying issue. Whenever you right-click on a video file, or click on a nVidia menu, the screen momentarily goes blank. I thought it was somehow related to the 16 colour video problem, but evidently not, as this excellent forum just fixed that one.

Any ideas on how to remedy this annoyance?

I can't recall seeing the screen blank on video files but it's very common for that to happen when you bring up the NVIDIA menu. Be thankful it only happens once. We've had people come through here have multiple screen blanks happen each time. The most common thing to try is to uninstall your display driver in the "Add or Remove programs" window and then reinstall the display driver. But usually that only improves the situation for people with multiple screen blanks. One screen blank is very common and usually very persistent.
