ASUS P5N7A-VM HDMI Intermittent Signal Loss FIX


Windows Vista on my HTPC (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131348) made me feel ancient so I decided to upgrade to Windows 7. But to my surprise I wish I had not done it since the screen would not stop losing signal every minute or two. I tried latest and older drivers from Nvidia’s but it wouldnt work so before I reloaded Vista I found this page which has great information about various issues with this motherboard:

From this I found out that I have to downgrade the video drivers to 178.24 version to get a stable display which worked for me. Here are the links to the drivers that worked on Windows 7 :
