Hi,
I'm writing to you on a screen that is rolling and sometimes flickering right now. I've tried 3 different screens on the same outlet, and they all have the same problem.

1. If you have any speakers near your monitor, try moving them away, this might help because they might not be shielded enough.

2. Try another screen, if the problem persists, it may be your power outlet.

3. If you don't want to spend money on a new screen, spend some time looking for a 3-prong grounding adapter.

I used the 3-prong grounding adapter, those little adapters that plug into the wall using 2 prongs, and then you can plug a 3 prong appliance into them on the other site, and it helped make the rolls not appear as often, and not as dark.

I think it is something with my power or the plug I am using.

Hope this may have helped a tiny bit

My screen keeps flickering and its only two weeks old


Step 1 Change the refresh rate to match the capabilities of your monitor. The refresh rate is a measurement of how many times the screen redraws each second. Although this setting is related to older, desktop monitors, it can affect the quality of the Liquid Crystal Displays found in laptops. Right-click the desktop and choose "Screen Resolution," then click "Advanced Settings" and "Monitor." If enabled, place a check beside "Hide Modes That This Monitor Cannot Display" and choose a higher refresh rate from the list.
Step 2
Update your graphics card drivers. This is the most likely cause if you've always had a problem with flicker. Look for "Hardware and Sound" in the Control Panel and click "Device Manager." Under "Display Adapters," you'll see the exact brand and model of your video card. Go to the manufacturer's driver Web page and search for this model to download the appropriate drivers. Alternatively, you can revert to an older driver if the flicker began immediately after an update. In this case, return to the Device Manager, right-click your adapter and then "Driver." Click "Roll Back Driver" and "Yes" to confirm.
Step 3 Turn on Vertical Sync if the flicker occurs when DirectX or OpenGL is in use, for example, while playing a PC game. Vertical Sync, or VSync, locks the refresh rate of the application to the refresh rate of the monitor. Horizontal flicker is reduced, which improves image quality. For Nvidia cards, VSync is found in "Manage 3D Settings." For Intel, look for "3D Settings" or "Asynchronous Flip." On ATI/AMD cards, turn on "Wait for Vertical Refresh."
Step 4
Lower and raise the laptop screen repeatedly to determine if the flicker is related to movement. Hardware failure is the likely cause when flicker occurs only when the laptop moves. Most likely, the screen cable is loose or damaged, but the inverter and backlight can also cause this problem. The laptop needs to be opened in order to confirm the problem, but do not attempt this unless you are familiar with PC repair and do not mind voiding the warranty. For the best results, take the laptop to a licensed technician or send it back to the manufacturer.

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.

My lenovo LCD screen is flickering black and striped lines, how to get it fixed in Richmond Hill Ontario


Laptop computers have LCD displays that are sensitive to many things. LCD displays have faults that sometimes produce a flickering screen, lines, dots or a faint display. These screens are sensitive to magnetic fields or electronic items near the computer. Speakers, cell phones, lights and other electrical items are examples. Your display also could be flickering due to software issues such as the video drivers or hardware issues relating to the inverter going bad or the LCD screen itself needing to be replaced. Trace the cause of your problem to come to a resolution.

1.Turn off the computer. Disconnect all external devices. Turn the computer over (bottom facing up). Take out the battery and reseat it. Turn the computer on.
2.Reset your resolution and refresh rate.
Windows XP:
Right click an open area on your desktop. Click "Properties" in the drop-down menu.
Click the "Advanced" button at the bottom of settings tab. Another dialog box appears. Click the "Monitor" tab. Change the Refresh rate to your default, or 60 hertz. Click "OK."
Windows Vista:
Click "Start, Control Panel." Find and click "Appearance and Personalization." Click "Adjust Screen Resolution." Change resolution to the default, or 800 x 600. Click "Advanced Settings." Click the "Monitor" tab. Change the refresh rate to the default, or 60 hertz. Click "OK."
Windows 7:
Click "Start, Control Panel." Find and click "Display" Click "Change display settings" on the left side. Change screen resolution to 800 x 600. Click "Advanced Settings" in the lower right. Click the "Monitor" tab. Change the refresh rate to 60 hertz. Click "OK."
3.Check the computer's surroundings. Move away any speakers, fluorescent lights, fans, cell phones, radios and any other electrical device that can cause flickering. Temporarily move electrical items away from the computer to see if they are producing this issue.
If the flicker stops, put back one item at a time to determine what is causing the problem.
4.Connect an external monitor to your laptop computer to see if that screen is also flickering. If there is no flicker, then the problem is strictly with the laptop, indicating a possible hardware failure. Contact the manufacturer for a replacement LCD.
If the flicker continues, go to next step.
5.Reset/Update your video driver. Click "Start" and right-click "My Computer." Click "Properties." The "System Properties" dialog box will appear.
6.Click "Device Manager." A list of items will appear. Click the (+) sign next to "Display Adapters."
7.Right-click the video adapter and click "Uninstall." Confirm removal. Restart the computer. The video driver will automatically reinstall itself.
8.Check to see if the flicker still exists. If so, go to the manufacturer's website. Download and install the newest video driver and BIOS for the computer.
9.Restart computer once drivers are installed. Continue to the next step if there is still flickering.
10.Open up your display screen all the way. If the flicker stops by opening it a certain distance, it is the display inverter. If the flicker still exists, the LCD screen should be replaced.
11.Contact the manufacturer of the computer for more information and a possible replacement inverter and LCD display. This will depend on the manufacturer and the computer itself.

I hope you find it very helpful. Thanks

Screen flickering


Not likely a bad monitor...
The monitor cable on the back of the computer is loose.

Could also be the screen setting that is difficult to achieve and maintain.

If the cable is already tight on both ends, you might try a lower resolution setting for the monitor.

1. Right-click anywhere on the desktop
2. Go to "Properties" on the drop-down menu
3. Select the "Settings" tab
4. Slide the Resolution knob to the left a little (1024x768 or 800x600) and press [OK]

Hope this helps

Flickering Screen on Model P105 Toshiba Satellite


on the back of the LCD is a cable that goes from there to the Motherboard. Try reseating that cable on both ends. If that doesn't fix it then it has to be a problem with either the screen or the cable behind the screen.

PS3 Flickers on and off on the screen


Is could be your TV and not the PS3. When the resolution of the screen changes, you TV will flicker to adjust to the new resolution. My TV flickers in a similar way when playing games of lower resolution than my HDTV.

Screen flickers badly at the resolution i want to use and no option to alter refresh rate - any ideas?


I assume you're using windows XP or Vista ? The OS uses data from the monitor to tell it resolutions and refresh rates supported. If you get flicker and cannot alter the refresh rate, it is because the monitor will not supprt a fatsre refresh rate. Your only option, unfortunately, is to get a new monitor, or the cheaper option, use a different resolution.

Sanyo Projector==No signal


Hi, Perhaps you can try lowering the screen resolution first of the laptop before plugging in the projector and then the Fn + F8. Thereafter, gradually increase the screen resolution until projector stops displaying. The idea is that your current screen resolution maybe too much for the projector to handle. This of course is assuming that there is no hardware problem with the projector. Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things turn up or should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.
