If it flicker continually that may well be either the video card (hopefully not part of the motherboard) or the monitor. Your best bet is to tt on someone else's machine. If it does not flicker then you probably have a bad (or soon to be very bad) video card. If, your video card is built into your machine, don't give up....you can buy a video card and install it....they are not expensive if you are not a big time gamer. Price ranges are anywhere from $8-20 if you are a normal PC user. Pricewatch.com can give you some insight. You will need to know what type of slot you have available....presumably AGP (but PCI, if you have an open slot on the motherboard, will also work....AGP is faster.)

If it is less than one year, then contact ACER, and exercise the "warranty" to get it repaired/replaced at _minimal_ cost to you.

check the data cables.also check if there are power fluctuations. if you do have power fluctuations, try buying a power stabilizer or no-break. if you're under warranty coverage, ask for a replacement (this is the most simple way), if not do what i told you before. the data cables may be malfunctioning. also check your video board. try to plug your monitor into another computer. if the problem persists with a different machine, then the cause is definitively in the monitor.
