I got Windows 7 (Dual booting with Vista just in case) running here, everything's nice and working good.
That is, until my issue occurred.

Whenever I try scrolling up and down through pages or when hovering over links, the colors on the background seem to flicker/refresh, whatever you want to call it. This only occurs with darker colors. I don't witness it with light colors. This problem was not happening in Windows Vista. Needless to say it's EXTREMELY annoying when browsing sites like Essence which has a dark layout, and tons of other sites have darker colors really, so yeah, I need a fix.

System Specifications:
  • Graphics: ATI Radeon X1650 Pro (AGP)
  • CPU: Intel Pentium Dual Core E5200 (2.50GHz)
  • Memory: 2GB DDR2 (667) RAM
  • Motherboard: AsRock 4CoreDual-SATA2
  • PSU: ASUS A-45GA 450W
  • OS: Windows 7 Ultimate (RTM Final Build 7600)

Things I already tried:
  • Googling! (Too bad nobody had this specific problem).
  • Updating Drivers.
  • Updating Windows.
  • Changing the Monitor Refresh Rate. (Higher and Lower).
  • Disabling Windows Aero theme to test it in Windows's Basic Mode.
  • Trying a different browser. (Originally using Firefox, but tested in IE as well to have the same results.
  • Updating Firefox to the latest version.
  • Configuring the Catalyst Control Center to either [High Quality] or [High Performance] or [Balanced]. No success.
  • Configuring the Catalyst Control Center exactly the same as it was in Vista. No success.
I'm pretty much stuck here, because regardless of what I have tried so far, I've had no success at all so far in fixing this annoying problem. It's even more annoying that it doesn't occur in Vista. I also asked several other people as well, but nobody knew what was causing this. Hopefully someone here might know what the problem is.

its the rendering engine itself. supposedly one of the features of Firefox's compositor will work towards minimising if not eliminating this.

Webkit sucks worse :p

the problem is, images, be they background or foreground are redrawn everytime you scroll, and none of the browsers redraw fast enough that this is not noticed.
