I have recently moved and when my desktop is on-the display sometimes flickers. i have tried to fix it using the buttons under the dell logo on the front bottom of the monitor and have even gone into the graphics properties but nothing seems to fix it.

thank you in advance for any ideas on how to fix this.

Re: display on my monitor keeps flickering

This is most likely caused by small power fluctuations in the power board due to some capacitors that are failing. It is a common fault with LCD monitors and is easy to fix if you have some electronic knowledge.
If not, then I advise you to take it to your local TV tech and have them replace the caps.
They should not charge's a 15 minute job.

Hope that helps =)

Monitor keeps blinking every few minuts

Potential Problems:
One possibility is that your cables are messed up. The 15 pin connection cable could be malfunctioning. You should get a new cable and replace it to see if it helps your situation. If not, the problem lies somewhere else.
There could also be an electromagnetic interference affecting your computer. You should move the laptop around the building or room to see if the position of the monitor changes the flickering. If it stops when you change positions, then there is something in the virtual environment affecting your monitors ability to display properly.
Display settings
If your display settings are improperly set, then your screen could flicker as a result. You should go into your desktop main screen, click Properties > Settings > Advanced > Monitor, and set your screens refresh rate at around 85 hertz or less.
Video card
The other possibilities are that the video/graphics card that was integrated into your computer has stopped working. You should switch it out with a new one to see if this helps your situation.
Try to plug your monitor into a different PC/laptop. If it works properly, then you have an internal computer problem. You should also update your monitor's drivers just in case.

Apple cinema flickers when warmed up

  1. Adjust the brightness setting. The brightness control (marked by ) is under the right front edge of the display.
  2. Calibrate the monitor using the Calibrate option in the Monitors control panel.
  3. The flickering could be caused by interference from a nearby power line, a fluorescent light, or an electrical device for example, a radio, a microwave oven, or another computer. Try relocating nearby electrical devices, or moving your computer and display.
