Each computer that has a video card has software that comes with that card. The exact program is going to depend on the exact model # of your computer and the type of video card that you have - if you tell me the model # and video card information, I can get more specific with you. Unless you have disabled it, most video card software loads on startup - double-check your taskbar on the lower right-hand side of your computer screen, and see if one of the items says something about graphics (my video card software, for instance, is Intel Extreme Graphics 2). Open up that program, and change the "refresh rate" to 60 Hz, and see if the flickering disappears. In your case, the TV card that you have might have its own software that will allow you to change the refresh rate.

There is another possible alternative if you are having trouble finding your video card software. On the Windows desktop: Go to Start --> Control Panel --> Appearances and Themes --> Display --> Settings --> Advanced --> Monitor --> change the refresh rate to 60 Hz.

60 Hz works in most cases. Double check the documentation for your TV card software, because it may reccomend another number.

If you tell me the video card software that you have, and the manufacturer and the model # of your TV card, I may be able to get more specific, but I think this at least has a chance of solving the problem.

How do I stop screen flickering


If this occurs within a specific application, it probably has to do with the fact that the application wasn't programmed for double buffering. If your screen is constantly flickering no matter what, it could be bad video drivers. Try updating them. If that fails, it's probably either bad hardware. Try a different video card. If it still persists, it's a bad monitor.

One day white smoke came out from my moniter and after few days it was repeated then my monitor stopped working.before that my moniter's display was flickering all the time. what could be the problem?


If smoke came out ,it is a bigger problem than just a solder joint, there is obviously a component that has burnt, It may be repairable by a technician, who may charge more than a screen is worth. If cost is a problem , secondhand ones can be 5-10 dollars

When reinstalling the Windows XP operating system it stops at the licensing agreement page even after I press F8 to accept


After you click accept does the light on the CD rom start flickering again or does it stay off? There is a possiblity that the F8 key on your keyboard doesn't work. Never seen a computer hang on that screen before. Maybe try another keyboard. If the CD rom does flicker after hitting F8 and looks like it's trying to access the cdrom then the cd may be damaged or dirty and it can't read from the cdrom to go on with the installation. In fixing thousands of computers I've never seen one hang at the Licensing agreement or I was asleep with it did so.

Problem


Most likely you have a virus or worm. Do you use any Virus program? Can you download the latest updates (virus information) for the program and scan the whole system. Eliminate all threads. If the issue persists, I'd try to boot from a CD, for example a Linux Live CD like Ubuntu and run memetest. If the system is still unstable, it should be hardware issues.
