    Every so often, the screen flickers in a sort of strobe effect. It is only 4 years old and has seen some decent use but has not been abused. At times the problem will stop for a while but then start back up again. Any answers?

The symptom you described is called diffusion. A simple alignment, normally in the power supply takes care of this problem. For the nearest Authorized Service Center near you contact Toshiba online at:$$Search?OpenForm Hope this helps

ASUS eee701 - Display is flickering in black/white version

If the entire display is flickering, tha'ts typically a hardware issue. Try tilting the screen back and forth, or pressing gently on the area just above the keyboard to see if you can replicate the issue. If it flickers then, you've got a bad cable or a plug.

It's unlikely, but if it is a software issue you can try dowloading new drivers for the video card. Go to the ASUS website, enter in your model information, and see if you can find drivers for the video component.

Hope that helps.
