Re: Screen rolls

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 monitor is flickering

Flickering on the screen can be caused by defective hardware in the computer or by improperly installed software monitor may flicker and goes into rolling state due to dust, overheating after a long continuous usage,loose circuitry or due to some electromagnetic interference with other like tv , UPS, large speaker systems etc.


1.Try Re-installing your Video driver

2 If it is possible, connect a different monitor to the computer. If the flickering disappears, it is a fair indication that the monitor is defective, otherwise go to the next step.

3. Set up the computer and the monitor on a different place in your house. If the flickering disappears now, it is most likely an interference caused by something in the original location. Check for devices which can cause interference.

4. If the flickering persists, check the setup of your system. If available in the setup, make sure that the option Monitor Type is configured as Colour Non-Interlaced.

If you don't think any above possible reasons for the rolling or flickering state of your monitor then we recommend you to get your monitor checked by the monitor company at their respective service cente

Problem with setting refresh rate.

Most LCD manufacturer recommend 60Hz, all the LCD monitors (close to 100, 2 monitors per work station) at my office are set to native resolution and @60Hz, LCD refresh rate does not work the same as the old style CRT. You can tell by using the digital camera to see if the screen is flickering or not, point the camera at the CRT monitor and you will see the screen will be rolling but not on hte LCD screen. Try this monitor with other PC.

Rolling screen

1. Try it on another computer to rule out the video card.

2. if it persist your going to need to repair the monitor or replace it now all you need is the control board $25 bucks on ebay. Now if you do not know how to replace this then I would leave it to the experts around $90 bucks parts and labor.

Thanks and please do rate this with the thumbs above. thanks

Flickering and garbeled screen

Try to lower your screen display resolution: you might have to do it under 'Safe Mode' (eg. reboot your computer in 'Safe' mode normally done using the F8 key during the initial boot sequence) as your screen display appears to be unstable/unreadable.

When I try to set to 1024 x 768 I get the message "not supported" rolling across the screen. What do I do?

The monitor cannot display that resolution. You'll have to use another resolution (1280*1024 will be est displayed on this monitor)

Monitor worked last night, now its black. if i turn off the monitor and then back on the screen comes ip for 2 seconds and then goes to black. Do i need to replace my monitor? my vidio card? or my...

Reboot into safe mode, go to the control panel > device manager (in xp the device manager is in the system folder) scroll down to display adapters, try to roll back the driver....the driver may have updated last night and the new driver is not compatible. After to roll back the driver, reboot the machine and see if it updates to another driver that is stable.

Screen is jumping and will not stop

If this is an older type cathode ray monitor (CRT) there ahould be a control on the back for "vertical roll" that needs adjustment.

If it's a newer flat panel TFT screen take it to a shop or junk it.

Vertical rolling


Does this occur at all resolutions/refresh rates? Did you try changing the resolution? Is it rolling or just displaying multiple screens - similar to this -

I had vertical rolling on the same monitor at 800x600. Changing it to 1024x768 was my "fix".

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.
