Re: Monitor flickring

  1. Flickering screen display

    Flickering on the screen can be caused by defective hardware in the computer or by improperly installed software, but it can also be caused by interference from external devices. The following examples describe situations in which your screen could start flickering:
    • Screen starts flickering because of interference caused by devices which generate magnetic fields, for instance:
      • a TV set
      • a laser printer
      • another monitor
      • fluorescent lights
      • hidden power lines
    • Apart from interference, an incorrect setting in your system CMOS setup can also cause flickering. On some systems it is possible to distinguish between interlaced and non-interlaced monitors. The setup of your system should always be colour non-interlaced.
    • Proximity to the monitor of fans, air-conditioning units or other devices with rotating motors.
    • The number of devices using power from the same electrical line. Are you overloading the plug?
    • Monitor placed on an unstable surface.
    • Improper video drivers, this is a software problem, see section B
    • An improperly configured or a defective video card.

  2. Reinstalling the video drivers

    1. Start the computer.
    2. Click Start, select Settings, and click Control Panel.
    3. Double-click the System icon.
    4. Select the Device Manager tab in the System Properties window.
    5. Make sure that View devices by type is selected and locate Display adapters and Monitor in the list.
    6. Click the plus sign (+) in front of both items to get a list of installed devices.
    7. You need to remove every device by highlighting it and clicking the Remove button and OK when the warning message appears.
    8. After doing so for both items, they should disappear from the list.
    9. Close the Device Manager by clicking OK, and you will return to the Control Panel.
    10. Double-click the Add New Hardware icon.
    11. Click Next, select Yes when it asks "Do you want Windows to search for your new hardware?", and click Next twice to start searching for new hardware.
    12. This will take a few minutes and, after it is finished, you will have to restart the computer. Windows 95 or higher will automatically set up the correct monitor and video drivers.
    13. If the screen is still flickering, click Start, select Settings, and click Control Panel.
    14. Double-click the Display icon and select the Refresh tab.
    15. Change the Monitor Refresh Rates until the flickering disappears.
    16. If the flickering remains, go to step C.

  3. Troubleshooting

    1. 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.
    2. 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.
    3. 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.

I have asus vw192t 19"

Resolution capabilities are a complicated blend of the abilities of your graphics card and the abilities of your screen. You will not always get a 1:1 match. You can improve your chances by installing the "monitor information" file that is usually supplied on a CD that comes with the monitor. Also, updating the drivers for your graphics card (see the manufacturer's web site) might help.

Can't set 1680x1050 resolution on viewsonic monitor

I found the solution for my problem.
Initially I thought it's a monitor problem and was trying to find the drivers for it.
The problems is not with my monitor but with the video adapter I use.

My video adapter has a intel chipset (Mobile Intel(R) 965 Express Chipset Family). Apparently the driver that I was using was quite old.

The only thing I had to do is:
1. Download the latest video adapter driver
2. Uninstall the current video adapter driver
3. Restart the system (Windows XP)
4. Install the new driver.
5. Restart the system.

Monitor resolution


What do you mean that you were unable to get the native resolution of 1440x900? Are you saying that the resolution varries?

Since you mentioned that the mother board supports 1440x900, try to set the monitor resolution to that same resolution and then restart the computer.

If you will get the same problem, you have to make sure that the video card supports 1440x900 resolution.

Viewsonic monitor not detected after service

If you are running DVI-D(the white connector) then it isn't getting a digital handshake. If you have inspected the connection between the 2 and make sure there is no bent pins inside the connector that it mates with. If you have another computer, try to connect to that one.
Open windows start menu, right click on my computer, then choose properties. Next choose Hardware, then Device manager. Once there, double click on display adapters to see if installed correctly. If good, click Monitors. If good, then your video card driver must need reinstall or update as usual. Also do you have the correct driver for you monitor? How does it react when you uninstall the monitor driver(can you select 32bit and higher resolution in default drivers?
If none of this works, I would suspect that the replaced component failed due to static or faulty components within the electronics.
Is there any other changes to the PC (new video card, updated Directx9.0?)

Hope this helps and let me know if I can be of anymore assistance?

Blurred pictures on monitor

The problem is not the monitor, it is the display adapter (Video card) of your system needs a valid Vista driver. (NVidia, ATI and Intel are the 3 largest Graphic card manufacturers) Monitor drivers are almost never needed except on some advanced large LCDs.

You said up upgraded to Vista, did you use a Vista upgrade DVD or just perform a clean installation of Vista? Have you installed Vista Chipset drivers? The chipset and Graphics drivres may not be native to Vista, you may need to install them.

Computer Moniter screen turned purple


This is a problem with the video cards hardware or the driver itself depending on your card you should updaate your cards driver from the appropriate site,right click the desktop>properties>settings>advanced>ada... will then see the name and manufacturer of your graphic card
go to the appropriate website and download the latest driver,here are the three main graphic card manufacturers websites
1) nvidia.....
other things to check are
1.make sure your graphic card is securely fitted and if power is required to the card,then check the power connector is securly fitted and inserted
2.try changing your monitors lead from the v.g.a connector to the d.v.i connector at the back of the card,the v.g.a. is a blue connector and the d.v.i. is a white connector,and the d.v.i requires a d.v.i to v.g.a converter
3.where applicable install any monitor drivers however these are rarely required the direct x diagnostic utility,press start>run>type dxdiag >press enter,then go to the display tab and run the "test direct 3d" test
5.finally check all cables are securly fitted
if after these tests and tasks you still experience problems then change the graphics card and run the tests again,if you experience more problems then a new video/graphic card is required
any problems let me know
good luck .......
