Screen Flickering Blowing Graphics Cards

Hi Guys, I have a Phillips LS2400 pc which has a bad screen flicker and has blown two ATI graphics cards over the two years I've had it. I have just installed a new NVIDIA GeForce 8500GT graphics card hoping to slove the problem but the screen is still flickering and I'm concerned this card is likely to fail. Could you please advise what the likely cause of this flickering is? I have downloaded the latest drivers for the new graphics card but this has made no difference. Your help would be appreciated. Many thanks regards Jay

    Thanks, but I've already tried the motherboard connections and they all seem to be OK, a mate said it could be a software problem but it still happens even though I've got the latest drivers.

Try reseating the LCD cable to the video card. If no change, then you will most likely need a replacement LCD (Roughly $150 on EBay)

Flickers when playing Games

You could try to find a new driver for your graphics card or even there may be a patch for your game available. That video card should be fine for that game though.

sounds like might be a bad card,

alternatively your system ram might be giving you grief, i had major BSOD issues with my computer and ram tested fine, upon switching sockets that the ram was in i found that it was actually good ram, bad ram socket.

ATI RADEON X1650 Pro Problem

The graphics card might not be working in sync with your processor. Get it checked WHY this is happening. Probably a faulty connection somewhere. See if you can find one before getting it checked.
