You need to download the latest graphices drivers and get the update for the BIOS.
If the screen flickers in the BIOS screen as well that means the sys has to be repaired for the screen.

Samsung S27B350 monitor intermittently goes black and has a constant flutter. Could this be a capacitor problem.


I think I have the solution for this. I just purchased a monitor and it immediately began to flicker and then blank the screen. I pulled it apart, but to no avail.
The problem is caused by the computer powering down the monitor, for example a laptop will power down the monitor to save battery life. It is the awakening of the monitor that causes the flickering. Obviously there is a software bug in the firmware that will not allow it to synch properly. The fix is pretty obvious, just stop the computer from powering down the monitor. You can still blank the screen using a screen saver, which is what I have done, but you are not getting the full power saving.
I hope this helps someone else - it drove me crazy for a day or so.

The screen flickers into hour-glass figure.


It's the tube going out. You need to replace it. If you want to stay with CRT monitors, you should be able to pickup a used one for around $10.00 on Craigslist.

Monitor goes black


Sorry to have to tell you this, but this is common in LCD monitors. The reason that it is going black when it boots is for one of two reasons. You either have a bad power supply that powers your LCD or your LCD's backlight is blown. These can be repaired or you can purchase a new one. But if it goes black 9 times out of 10 is because the backlight is bad. These can be repaired!
