Re: zenith monitor in an arcade game

Check to see if you can find horizontal and vertical sync controls. These would typically be small knobs or screwdriver adjustments on the edge of a circuit board or at the back of the monitor chassis. Try adjusting the vertical sync....rotate the knob back and forth two or three times to "clean" it...then adjust to see if you can get the picture to settle down.

Aging electrolytic capacitors are the most common cause of symptoms like this. You'll need the assistance of an experienced electronics technician to find the exact source of the problem.

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

Monitor flickers, similar to a fluorescent light bulb that is going out. Also, there is one line on the left side of the screen, going up and down, that changes color, but it comes and goes. I thought...

The problem is in the monitor screen, there is a large circuit board connected behind the main display screen. The video signal is feed to the main board and generates the proper color balance, the second problem is the lamp behind the display is flickering and breaking down. To repair this will not be cost effective, cheaper to replace the monitor. But I would suggest hooking a spare monitor to the computer to make sure there are no additional issues.

Good day, I have an Acer AL2423W monitor. When I turn it on, for the first few minutes all I get are vertical coloured lines. After a few more minutes the screen images start to become visible, but...

Hi Friend, In this case what I would recommend you is to connect any external monitor to the system to check if you have the same issue with the external monitor as well or not.
If yes, then it might be the issue with the video card so, you can try updating the video drivers for the system.
If no, it means that the original monitor has some issues with itself..
Also what I would recommend is try to lessen the screen resolution instead of 1920 x 1200 to lower resolution and restart the system and check if it makes any difference..
Also update the video drivers for the system.

My AOC 17" CRT monitor displays large veiw on DOS & some PC DOS games where the top portion is displayed at the bottom of the screen.

sounds like you need to run a screen config wizard. If you have a true Nvidia driver you can do this. Otherwise, re-download the driver from the main website
and it'll work for you
