You don't say if it's CRT old style or a new TFT screen,either way the first port of call is to right click on a blank bit of the desktop and choose properties from the menu,you should find a section with your monitor refresh rate on it,this is usaully set to 60hz by default,75hz or above should get rid of flicker if your monitor supports higher.....failing that,have you got anything recently placed near it that could interfere with signal such as a mobile phone?.....also check cables for condition and plug is secure.......if these fail you might have a fault developing in your graphics card or if its a TFT screen an ilumination tube maybe faulty inside the screen

Dell desktop monitor screen flickers.


The monitor is about to go bad. Replace it. Borrow a monitor from a family member, neighbor or friend just to see if the flickering stops. If it does stop your monitor is bad. If the borrowed monitor flickers, you will need to replace your Video Card in the computer.

Pixels around words and in pictures flicker


Sounds like a H phase problem, you should test the moitor on another PC or laptop to see if its the monitor, failing that you will need to replace the graphics card, Your board has a PCI-E slot which will give better graphics performance. When you get a new card make sure that:
1. Your power supply has enough wattage to power it.
2. You dissable your old card in the bios after installing the new one.
3. Prior to installing the new card remove the drivers in hardware manager for your old card and when your pc restarts to finalise the removal of the driver shut off the power, open and install the new card.

Hope this help, comment back if your still having issues.

Good morning, Kevin!
Sounds like an LCD problem. You can verify this by hooking up an external monitor. The external monitor will probably show a good display.
After verification of the problem,you may want to try to replug the LCD cable at both ends, just to see if that corrects the situation.
If that resolves things, all is well and good. If not, you may need a replacement LCD.
If the external monitor shows the same display, you may have a motherboard problem.
Hope this information is of some help.

Moniter flicker


Any monitor flickers at 60 hertz. The usual reason for being unable to use faster refresh frequencies is that the correct video card driver and/or monitor driver are not installed. Another possibility is that the resolution is set too high. Assuming Windows XP, right click on the background, choose "properties", settings tab, advanced button. Check to make sure your video card is named - the monitor is not as important but would certainly be helpful. If not, did out the CD's that came with them or download drivers from the manufacturer's website. On the other possibility, on the adapter tab, there ought to be a "list all modes" button so you can choose resolution and refresh rate at the same time. Your LCD monitor will be fussy about the resolution, so you may need several tries to get something that looks good and doesn't flicker.
