The screen doesn't flicker like it would when the refresh rate is low,it actually flickers very quickly in a split second motion that makesthe entire display that I'm looking at distort into an hour glassfigure. The browser that I was looking at right now as I typed waswarped into an hour glass figure and I could see the black empty spaceof the screen surrounding the "hour glass". It's a CRT monitor, 17 in screen eView 17f3 model 786N and it'shonestly scaring the **** out of me every time it does it. Maybe I'mparanoid but I think it might explode.

Flickering is caused by the incorrect refresh rate being used by your graphics card, go into the graphics settings by right clicking your desktop and choose the correct resolution and refresh rate dependant on the screen size and options. TRYING ALL THE OPTIONS DOES NOT CAUSE ANY DAMAGE TO YOUR PC OR MONITOR. Just pick the setup that suits you.
check the monitor refresh rate setting.right click on the back ground on the main windows screen. Choose proprieties from the menu that opens, then click on the settings tab on the top of property window. Next click 0on the monitor tab and increase the refresh rate at the bottom of monitor window. That should do it.
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.
