Hello, my name is Chris. This is a really simple fix. Please make sure that your VGA card (video card) is pushed in on the motherboard. Even if it's a PCI Video Card. Still check. And make sure it is screwed in as well. If it's none of the above, than your motherboard is fried.

My screen has recently begin to flicker intermittently.

Try hooking the monitor up to another computer and see if you experience the same problem. If you don't have another computer, attempt to hook up another monitor to the same computer and see if you experience the same problem. If the problem sticks with this and only this monitor, then more than likely you have some bad capacitors in the monitor, which may be replaceable but require a bit of work to fix. Else you may be looking at a new monitor if this isn't under warranty any longer.
If the problem happens with another monitor on this same computer however, it sounds like you have some video card issues and you probably want to look into getting a new one of those.

The screen does not sweech on.

If you turn the monitor on, is it getting power? Try hitting the menu button. If it is not getting power, check to make sure that its' plugged in and that the receptacle is in working order. If it is getting power, check to see if the cables are hooked properly to the computer. If you have another computer in the house, try hooking the monitor to another computer to rule out a problem with your computers' VGA card. if you determine that the monitor is okay, it's probably your video card. You can purchase a new video card on the internet, shipped to your home, for less than 20 bucks. installing it takes about 5 minutes as well.

The monitor keeps going black. the computer is

Staple will be the last place to have the computer fixed. He should have asked you to bring in the monitor to find out where the fault is, but he ends up selling you a new video card instead. What a scam, this is what gives good repair people bad names.

My monitor has stopped displaying anything- every once in a while it will make a fizzing sound, the screen will flicker briefly, then it goes black again.

Hello there
I would first try the monitor on a different computer and if it works if it does than you know that the video card on the computer is either bad or needs to be removed and cleaned and than reinstalled more than likly it will need a new card or if you have built in card than you will have to get a new card and install it on the board in one of the pci or agp slots ok?
If you need any more help on this pleas feel free to post a comment to me on this ok
Best regards Michael

I recently purchased and installed the P191W monitor, and now my pictures are stretched. I was told I new to get a new graphics card. What card should I get? Or can I just update the driver? I am running...

Find your monitor's native resolution, in your case it's 1440x900. Go to display settings (usually right-click on desktop and choose properties), go to settings tab and move the resolution slider until it shows 1440x900. Confirm, the screen should flicker for a moment and adjust - and you should be fine.
If there is no 1440x900 resolution available, then installing a monitor .inf file that came on a disk accompanying the monitor might help.

LG Flatron W2252TQ 22'' monitor not working in digital mode

try to set your screen resolution to maximum using Display Settings in windows. Besides, are all software drivers for this monitor loaded and properly installed? Right click My Computer=>Properties. select hardware => device manager. Make sure video icons are not marked with question marks. if they are, install monitor drivers shipped with your monitor.

I have the same problem on my new samsung 2234sw monitor.

The answer to your last questions are yes. Your old video card may not support so high a resolution and this is causing the flicker. Since you said lowering the resolution fixes the problem this would be the most obvious fix. You can get a new GTX 260 with 216 cores 896 mb RAM for about $165. This would allow you to play any games out there or watch hd without any problems. Just make sure your power supply is in the recomended range and has the required connectors for the card. You can get better than a 260 depending on your budget. Hope this helps.

Back ground screen flickering

If it flicker continually that may well be either the video card (hopefully not part of the motherboard) or the monitor. Your best bet is to tt on someone else's machine. If it does not flicker then you probably have a bad (or soon to be very bad) video card. If, your video card is built into your machine, don't give can buy a video card and install it....they are not expensive if you are not a big time gamer. Price ranges are anywhere from $8-20 if you are a normal PC user. can give you some insight. You will need to know what type of slot you have available....presumably AGP (but PCI, if you have an open slot on the motherboard, will also work....AGP is faster.)
