Look for your computer's monitor settings, then adjust its refresh rate.
To modify a refresh rate on Windows, right-click anywhere on the Windows desktop.
Select "Properties," then choose the "Display Properties" tab on the window that appears.

Click the "Settings" option, then select "Advanced" from the window that appears.
Choose the "Monitor" tab, which lets you access a drop-down menu with the options for refresh settings adjustments. As a basic guide, use a setting of at least 75 hertz.

Confirm the change by clicking "Apply." Reboot the PC to ensure the new settings on the screen take effect.
Check your screen if the blinking problem is resolved. If not, try a higher refresh setting. If there is no change on the flickering of the screen, this means the problem is not caused by the screen's refresh rate. If your computer is not running on a battery or surge protector, shut it down to safely transfer the plug to another outlet Hope this helps.

Samsung S27B350 monitor intermittently goes black and has a constant flutter. Could this be a capacitor problem.


I think I have the solution for this. I just purchased a monitor and it immediately began to flicker and then blank the screen. I pulled it apart, but to no avail.
The problem is caused by the computer powering down the monitor, for example a laptop will power down the monitor to save battery life. It is the awakening of the monitor that causes the flickering. Obviously there is a software bug in the firmware that will not allow it to synch properly. The fix is pretty obvious, just stop the computer from powering down the monitor. You can still blank the screen using a screen saver, which is what I have done, but you are not getting the full power saving.
I hope this helps someone else - it drove me crazy for a day or so.

My laptop screen flickers in and out, screen goes black


Hello there,
The reason the screen flickers is simply because the module of the laptop is faulty. The module is what connects the screen to the main board, it is like a flex for the screen. Once you can have it replaced, the screen will stop flickering.

Turn on, get the blue Dell logo then screen goes black. The power LED and network LEDs are permanently on and the hard drive LED is flickering. And it sits like that constantly. I removed the battery in...


Try the following.

First: hit your f2 key and see if it goes to the cmos settings. If it does and you can see the screen then exit your cmos and when you reboot hit your f8 key and go to vga mode.

The other thing you might want to try is connecting an external monitor and see if it is setup to go external instead of internal.

Good Luck and let me know how it goes.

When I turn my computer on the monitor constantly flickers on and off. After about an hour this stops the the screen goes black about five times, but after that it works fine?


You need to download the latest graphices drivers and get the update for the BIOS.
If the screen flickers in the BIOS screen as well that means the sys has to be repaired for the screen.
