Monitor Flickers Everytime I open a program

My Dell monitor works fine unless I open a program! Everytime I try to open a program, the monitor flickers back and forth from the regular screen to a screen that says " Genesis Display Perfection." It will not stay on the regular screen at all unless everything is closed.

SOURCE: My Dell 1905FP 19 monitor went black & green power light flickers

It sound like a short circuit. I had this problem with 1907FP model. It had an USB port on the monitor which got damaged and it was shortening to the groung. In your case it might be a bad internal power supply board.

My dell inspironb120 powers up screen flickers on then black but when i attach to external monitor monitor works but laptop screen stays black when ichecked programs file it tells me i am missing drivers

If it flickers on as in you see an image, it's not the inverter. If your image is there but you can only see it if you hold it up to a strong light, then it is an inverter issue.

Your internal video driver may be missing or corrupt. If you have driver issues, plug in the external monitor and go right to the Dell website, click Support, and have the system locate your service tag number. The service tag may also be on the bottom of your laptop unless the sticker fell off. You will need this to get the correct drivers. Once you get a list of drivers, look for the video driver.

Laptop monitor bad color and flickers continuely, but when attached to external monitor, works fine

I'm going to take an educated guess here, because it sounds like the monitor's interface controller is bad. I forgot the name of the thing, but it's a small circuit board that's normally located at the bottom of the panel frame, between the flat ribbon cables and the round hinge cables.

Monitor display flickers a lot and colours change

If the monitor is external, make sure the connecting cable is in properly. If it is a vga cable, ensure it is screwed in tight, not just plugged in. If the display is built it, I suggest you take it to your nearest computer repair shop for them to have a look at it unless you have previous experience in this or a really tech savvy family member/friend.

My dell moniter 2010f flickers all the time. I have another moniter on that uses the same card by does'n flickers. I also pugged the dell in by its self and it still flickered. l also down loaded...

Sounds like an issue with the backlight in the monitor. Usually the backlight is built in to the LCD panel so there really isn't a way of fixing this unless you replace the panel.

Please rate my solution to show your appreciation!

I have Dell 1907fpc monitor. The image flickers and finally darkens. how to resolve the problem?

It sounds like your LCD Backlight/s are going out. To fix you will need to replace the LCD screen inside the Monitor. It may be more feasible to replace the Monitor.

Monitor light flickers on orange never goes to green.

Dell monitor

Who manufactured it? Better call them to check if the monitor's still under warranty. Im thinking it has to be replaced and may eventually fail completely.
