Do you have the right drivers installed for the display card? If not, update them. In addition to you may be using a network in which the administrator has blocked other users from accessing this kind of settings.

Get this flsh out of my monitor.


Hi there.

If the screen flickers, make sure the display settings in Windows match the native resolution and refresh rate for the monitor. You can find the native resolution of a flat panel display in the specifications, in the printed material or on the box that came with the monitor. Some common native resolutions are 800 x 600, 1024 x 768, 1920 x 1080, and 1680 x 1050.

The most common refresh rate for LCD monitors is 60 Hz. This normally cannot be changed for flat panel displays using Plug and Play settings. However, if you are using special video software to increase or decrease the refresh rate, change the refresh rate to match the default refresh rate specification of the monitor.

STEP 1
To change the screen resolution and refresh rate settings in Windows, do the following:
- In Windows XP
See my tip on setting up the optimum screen resolution for Windows XP here.

- In Windows Vista (Same for Windows 7)
1. Click Start, and then click Control Panel .
2. Find the Appearance and Personalization area, and click Adjust Screen Resolution .
3. Move the slider bar until the screen resolution matches the native resolution.
4. Click Advanced settings, and then click the Monitor tab.
5. Select the Screen refresh rate that matches the default rate for your monitor (if it is not already selected).
6. Click OK, and then click OK again.

If you cannot select the native resolution or the native resolution is unavailable, continue to the next step to update the drivers for the graphics adapter on the computer.

You can get the latest updated video drivers from the video hardware manufacturer's Web site. Here is a list showing some of the video hardware websites:

Check for NVIDIA video driver updates at NVIDIA Home Page.
Check for ATI/AMD video driver updates at ATI/AMD Home Page.
Check for Intel video support and downloads, Intel Downloads. (If you have an Intel mainboard and are using onboard graphics).

NOTE: If you are using onboard graphics with a mainboard that is not manufactured by Intel, just give me the name and model number of your mainboard and I can try and locate the graphics drivers for you.

After updating the video drivers, go back to Step 1 and try to change the screen resolution again.
Note: If you cannot select the native resolution after updating the video drivers, the graphics adapter in the computer might not support that resolution and may need to be upgraded.

If after changing the resolution and updating video drivers the flickering persists then check the video cable connections. Unplug the cable and inspect the cable for damage. If the cable is damaged, replace it with a new cable. Try to use cables less than 3 meters (10 feet) long.

Monitors are sensitive to magnetic fields so have a look at the environment around the monitor. Speakers, florescent lights, fans, cell phones, radios, and any other electrical device can cause flickering. Temporarily move electrical items away from the monitor to see if they is producing a field that causes the flicker.

If the monitor has more than one type of connection available such as VGA, DVI, or HDMI, try a different type of connection.

To see if the video coming from the computer is causing the problem, temporarily connect the monitor to another computer. If the flicker is gone when the monitor is connected to another computer, then this means that the graphics adapter hardware on the first computer is damaged or might need to be upgraded to use the monitor. On the bright side at least it's not your monitor.

If however the flicker remains then the problem lies within the hardware of the monitor itself and is not a software problem. If you have bought this monitor fairly recently then I suggest you take it back to the place of purchase and have them test it. Some monitors carry 3 year warranty support so if you bought it within the warranty period specified by the reseller I suggest you see if you can get refunded or have them swop it out.

How to adjust or change a monitor's refresh rate.


If you've ever used a CRT monitor, you know that fine-tuning your refresh rate is essential. The refresh rate of a display is measured in Hertz (abbreviated Hz) and specifies the number of times per second that a display is illuminated.<br /> <br /> Setting the refresh rate to 60 Hz - a common default value - tells the monitor to redraw itself 60 times per second. For most people, that setting on a CRT monitor is too slow, resulting in an annoying flicker that can cause headaches, eyestrain, and fatigue. Bumping the refresh rate to a higher number can reduce that flicker, as long as the monitor itself can handle the faster rate.<br /> <br /> If you're using an LCD monitor then a safe refresh rate lies in the 60Hz-75Hz range. A greater refresh rate when it comes to LCD's means greater performance.<br /><br /> <b><u>How to adjust the refresh rate</u></b><br /> Firstly you will need to right click on your desktop background and select <b>Properties</b>.<br /> <img src="slasher_x_72.JPG" /> <br /> This will display the <b>Display Properties</b> window as show below.<br /> <img src="slasher_x_73.jpg" /> <br /> You will need to click the <b>Settings</b> tab.<br /> <img src="slasher_x_74.JPG" /> <br /> Once in the <b>Settings</b> tab you will need to click on the <b>Advanced</b> button.<br /> <img src="slasher_x_75.JPG" /> <br /> Then click on the <b>Monitor</b> tab.<br /> <img src="slasher_x_76.JPG" /> <br /> Here you can change the screen's refresh rate. Make sure the box next to <b>Hide modes that this monitor cannot display</b> is ticked. After you have selected the refresh rate you wish click <b>OK</b>. It would be a very good idea if you have the user's manual for the monitor handy just so that you can see what the manufacturer suggests the refresh rate should be set to.

Monitor displaying out of range message


Hello and Welcome to FixYa!

This usually happens when you select a resolution or a refresh rate that is beyond the monitor range. For example if your monitor supports a max. resolution of 1024x768 then if you give it a signal of 1600x1200 it will display out of range.

Solution of this problem is to reduce the resolution or refresh rate frequency.

Changing screen resolution in Windows XP: First right-click on the desktop and then left click on Properties from the menu that appears.

The display properties dialogue box will appear as shown in fig 1.1 below, click on the settings tab at the top right of the box.

The areas worth noting are:

Screen Resolution
This slide bar is what you use to change the resolution, the options you have will depend on your graphics card and monitor, but the standard options are 800x600, 1024x768 and 1152x864.

Normally the default (in XP) is set to 800x600 which means the display will be 800 pixels wide and 600 pixels high.

How to Change the Screen Refresh Rate of Your Monitor loadTOCNode(2, 'summary');
  1. Click Start, click Control Panel, click Appearance and Themes, and then click Display.

    Alternatively, right-click the desktop, and then click Properties.
  2. Click the Settings tab, and then click Advanced.
  3. Click the Monitor tab, and then click the screen refresh rate that you want to use.
NOTE:
  • The default refresh rate setting is 60 Hertz (HZ); however, your monitor may support a higher setting. Check your manufacturer's documentation for information about the settings that your monitor supports.
  • If you use a higher refresh rate, you can reduce the rate that your screen flickers; however, if you specify a refresh rate that is too high for your monitor, your screen may become unusable and your hardware may be damaged.

Frequency out of range


Try to set the monitor refresh rate to Adapter Default despite of Optimal or lower rate of refresh. For this first download the manual of your monitor and check what is the highest refresh rate your monitor can suport. Then goto the display properties and set the adapter refresh rate to Adapter Default. In most cases such problem is solved. You did not mentioned the OS. This method is applicable in Windows only.

Screen flickers badly at the resolution i want to use and no option to alter refresh rate - any ideas?


I assume you're using windows XP or Vista ? The OS uses data from the monitor to tell it resolutions and refresh rates supported. If you get flicker and cannot alter the refresh rate, it is because the monitor will not supprt a fatsre refresh rate. Your only option, unfortunately, is to get a new monitor, or the cheaper option, use a different resolution.
