Screen is flickering constantly and goes black after a while


Look for your computer's monitor settings, then adjust its refresh rate.
To modify a refresh rate on Windows, right-click anywhere on the Windows desktop.
Select "Properties," then choose the "Display Properties" tab on the window that appears.

Click the "Settings" option, then select "Advanced" from the window that appears.
Choose the "Monitor" tab, which lets you access a drop-down menu with the options for refresh settings adjustments. As a basic guide, use a setting of at least 75 hertz.

Confirm the change by clicking "Apply." Reboot the PC to ensure the new settings on the screen take effect.
Check your screen if the blinking problem is resolved. If not, try a higher refresh setting. If there is no change on the flickering of the screen, this means the problem is not caused by the screen's refresh rate. If your computer is not running on a battery or surge protector, shut it down to safely transfer the plug to another outlet Hope this helps.

Fix flickering screen


Flickering screen is often caused by a defective cable. Check all the cables attached to your monitor.
If you think all your cables are in good condition, the problem is probably with the environment. Monitors are sensitive to magnetic fields. Change the position where you have your laptop.
The problem might also be caused due to refresh rate not properly being set. In this case your screen will flicker when you open images or videos. Just adjust the refresh rate that will be available in graphic properties.
If the above solutions don't work, you probably will have to change your display.

I have a screen flickering problem on my hp pavilion dv4-1120us.how do I fix it?


Try to use Display options to change the refresh rate. If you're on 60 Hz, you might want to change to 71 Hz or something different from where it is currently set.

Depending upon which version of Windows you are using, you get there by right-clicking on a blank spot on the desktop, and choosing Graphics options or Screen Resolution, then looking for the setting for refresh rate.

Laptop screen keeps flickering


Changing the refresh rate might help.

Right click on the screen. In the box that comes up select Graphic Properties. In the window that comes up click information. Box that comes up select monitor tab. Will have a list of display sizes and refresh rates that are supported by your monitor. Once you have that information you can make changes.

FYI: Acer says max resolution 1920 X 1080 with 75 HZ refresh rate.

Also if you have a tube light or speaker system close to the monitor then try moving it further away.

My lenovo LCD screen is flickering black and striped lines, how to get it fixed in Richmond Hill Ontario


Laptop computers have LCD displays that are sensitive to many things. LCD displays have faults that sometimes produce a flickering screen, lines, dots or a faint display. These screens are sensitive to magnetic fields or electronic items near the computer. Speakers, cell phones, lights and other electrical items are examples. Your display also could be flickering due to software issues such as the video drivers or hardware issues relating to the inverter going bad or the LCD screen itself needing to be replaced. Trace the cause of your problem to come to a resolution.

1.Turn off the computer. Disconnect all external devices. Turn the computer over (bottom facing up). Take out the battery and reseat it. Turn the computer on.
2.Reset your resolution and refresh rate.
Windows XP:
Right click an open area on your desktop. Click "Properties" in the drop-down menu.
Click the "Advanced" button at the bottom of settings tab. Another dialog box appears. Click the "Monitor" tab. Change the Refresh rate to your default, or 60 hertz. Click "OK."
Windows Vista:
Click "Start, Control Panel." Find and click "Appearance and Personalization." Click "Adjust Screen Resolution." Change resolution to the default, or 800 x 600. Click "Advanced Settings." Click the "Monitor" tab. Change the refresh rate to the default, or 60 hertz. Click "OK."
Windows 7:
Click "Start, Control Panel." Find and click "Display" Click "Change display settings" on the left side. Change screen resolution to 800 x 600. Click "Advanced Settings" in the lower right. Click the "Monitor" tab. Change the refresh rate to 60 hertz. Click "OK."
3.Check the computer's surroundings. Move away any speakers, fluorescent lights, fans, cell phones, radios and any other electrical device that can cause flickering. Temporarily move electrical items away from the computer to see if they are producing this issue.
If the flicker stops, put back one item at a time to determine what is causing the problem.
4.Connect an external monitor to your laptop computer to see if that screen is also flickering. If there is no flicker, then the problem is strictly with the laptop, indicating a possible hardware failure. Contact the manufacturer for a replacement LCD.
If the flicker continues, go to next step.
5.Reset/Update your video driver. Click "Start" and right-click "My Computer." Click "Properties." The "System Properties" dialog box will appear.
6.Click "Device Manager." A list of items will appear. Click the (+) sign next to "Display Adapters."
7.Right-click the video adapter and click "Uninstall." Confirm removal. Restart the computer. The video driver will automatically reinstall itself.
8.Check to see if the flicker still exists. If so, go to the manufacturer's website. Download and install the newest video driver and BIOS for the computer.
9.Restart computer once drivers are installed. Continue to the next step if there is still flickering.
10.Open up your display screen all the way. If the flicker stops by opening it a certain distance, it is the display inverter. If the flicker still exists, the LCD screen should be replaced.
11.Contact the manufacturer of the computer for more information and a possible replacement inverter and LCD display. This will depend on the manufacturer and the computer itself.

I hope you find it very helpful. Thanks

My Dell Latitude C400 PC Notebook screen flickers very fast, any ideas? thanks


It can depend on what kind of flickering you are seeing. A very very fast one, that shows more obvious if you look to the side of your screen (instead of directly at it as normal), means your screens 'refresh rate' is most likely wrong.
That's the most likely problem you have, as the inverter will usualy only make a screen flash, not flicker, though they don't usually flash too much before the bulb or inverter can't take the strain and breaks properly.
Sometimes a screens circuit can go slightly faulty (very rare) and cause a slight change in its refresh cycle, and that can cause a high speed flickering too, usually accompanied with a very slight blurring of any images.
The standard setting for a C400 is 1024 x 768 resolution at 60 Hertz, so check your display properties to see that's not been accidentally changed.

How to troubleshoot flickering, jittering, shaking, or wave-like images on a LCD monitor. 1) Connect the display to the computer. 2) Turn on the computer.


Any monitor has something called a screen refresh rate. If you are replacing your old monitor with a newer one, there is sth called a screen refresh rate that you need to configure. Older monitors (size also matter) have a lower screen refresh rate than the newer ones. If that happens to be your case, find the refresh rate of your new LCD on its manual and adjust it like this.
  1. Right click on an icon free area on your desktop.
  2. Click Properties
  3. On the Property dialog click on the Settings Tab
  4. At the bottom of the form click on Advanced
  5. On the coming property dialog click on the monitors tab
  6. Under Monitor Settings you will find the screen refresh rate combo box, here select the rate that suits you screen and click apply.
  7. confirm your actions in the confirmation window.
Note: Be sure to select a screen refresh rate that matches your screen. If you select a rate bigger than the LCD's capacity you will end up with a black screen on your monitor and won't be able to see the desktop unless you boot in safe mode.

  • The default refresh frequency setting is 100 Hertz, although your monitor may support a higher setting. Check your manufacturer's documentation for information regarding the settings your monitor supports.

  • Changes to the refresh frequency affect all users that log on to the computer.
