My Samsung 915n started to flutter this AM. I attached it to an other computer to make sure that it wasn't the video card. I'm thinking that it is the backlight going bad. If so would it be hard for a somewhat expert to replace. I build my computers from scratch.

It does sound like a bad monitor, but first! hook a spare monitor to the computer, if okay The SamsungSyncMaster is the problem, caused by the master board which is attached behind the LCD display, the video signals are feed to the main board where the colors are balanced. To repair this would not be cost effective "cheaper to buy new" Now! if the video cable from the computer to the monitor can be detached, sub another cable just to be sure. Finally if both monitors show the same issue, the problem is in the video graphics card of the computer.
See if you can pull up the menu on your monitor. If you can reset it to factory defaults.
If you still can't see the screen properly then you need to on your computer. Go into the device manager and make sure its seeing your video card properly. Look underneath display adapters and be sure its seeing something other then standard display vga.
If not then your display adapters are missing so once you install those, the computer will recognize your monitor.
I took the advise of someone who wrote in and checked my refresh rate. I found it was at 60 and was advised to change it to 75. So far I haven't experienced any fluttering or wiggling so am hoping this will do the trick. I also checked all the plug in's that were connected to my power strip to make sure they were o.k. I still have one year left on my warranty so may have my monitor checked out just in case I've missed something. Thanks for your offer. I'll be sure to save your website for future questions.
the monitor gets the wrong signal from the computer (refresh rate too high or scan rate too high ) check the screen refresh rate from Display properties / Settings tab / Advanced button / Monitor settings worse case: damaged hardware
Go into advanced settings from the settings tab of "display properties" and select the "monitor" tab, from there, try changing the refresh rate. Toggle "hide modes that this monitor cannot display" if you do not see any other settings in the drop down other than the one that is already selected.
