I had an older mac Mini that would do that and could not use it with that monitor. it worked fine with my G5 powerpc, was probably a video card issue. I got it to work also by connecting with a VGA connection rather than a DVI
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.
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.
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 the above steps do not resolve the situation, please contact the Packard Bell Help line for further assistance.
I had this problem. i opened the monitor up and every single one of the capacitors was blown (bulged and leaky). went to frys electronics, bought new ones for 12 bucks. some soldering later and the thing works perfectly.
look into this solution before spending ANY money anywhere else. there are truly MILLIONS of bad capacitors floating around the world. google 'bad capacitors' for instructions or to find someone to do this for you.

You will have two plugs coming from your monitor
One will have a blue plug that looks a little different, the other one will have a regular plug which can be plugged into your power surge or into a wall outlet.
The blue one will match up with a port on your tower. If you look on the back of the tower where all of the plugs go you will see one that looks similar but is opposite to the one coming from the monitor. Make sure you turn it to fit then screw it in and you should be good to go
You probably have 2 monitor connections. you have a standard one, and one that is through a graphics card at the bottom of your tower. Check for that second connection and switch the plug.. that should solve it.
