Angry Black Flashin Loading Screen Windows 7

Hi all, I need some help plz....really been bugging me and can't seem to get it fixed

Whenever the game loads between areas just before it finished loading it shows 100% and the loading screen then flashes black twice (Just like when u resolution change) and then enters the does not do this on Windows XP at all, I run a Dual Boot Windows XP and Windows 7, but mostly use Windows 7...all my other games and Programs works fine, Ive downloaded the latest drivers from Nividia's site....disabled Anti Aliasing settings in Nvidia Control Panel from App. Controled to Off...etc.

In XP its all good with the Default settings and older drivers no issues at all...It's really a hassle to boot in XP just for GW and im certian there must be a fix or work around....Anyone else perhaps have the same issue or that can shed some light on the situation, any help will greatly be aprreciated.

My Specs are:
Dual Core E8500
GeForce 9800GTX 512MB

Thanks in advance.

I found the fix, just change the Exe or Shortcut to run in Compatibility Mode Vista Service Pack 2.
Loading screen issues
When running Guild Wars on Windows 7, the loading screen will go black then load the destination. To fix this find Gw.exe within Program Files and change the compatibility from Windows XP Service Pack 2 to Windows Vista Service Pack 2.

I have the same exact problem also running windows 7 on my gaming pc. I'll try the method Serenath mentioned to see if it fixes it for me. It also doesn't cause problems and doesn't bother me much but it's strange.

Phenom X3 2.10 GHz
Radeon HD 4870 1024 MB

EDIT: Nope, didn't fix it for me, but thanks for the suggestion. Maybe it'll work for OP.

I have Windows 7 and an HD4870, but I've never noticed this problem. I'll have check later (not on that comp atm), to see if it actually does that though..
