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.

My monitor compaq model MV520 is always blinking every time I open my computer, How can I fix it?.


Good morning, afternoon, evening or night; whatever time of day you are viewing this solution post. Thank you for choosing FixYa to answer and solve your problem. Your Compaq MV520 Monitor is always blinking every time you turn on your computer and you want to know how you can fix it? First, we need to troubleshoot the problem. I'm thinking you probably need to refresh the flicker rate on your monitor. The flicker rate is probably set on a low setting, which is causing you screen to blink (flicker). This can be bad for your health as well because it can cause eyestrain and headaches. Your monitor is a CRT (Cathode-Ray Tube) model. These types of monitors can cause a lot of screen flickering. Now that we've troubleshooted the problem, now it's time to solve the problem. There are two ways you can solve this problem. You can either refresh the flicker rate or you can buy an LCD monitor. LCD monitors flicker-free. My suggestion is that you refresh the screen flicker rate. To refresh the flicker rate, go into your System Preferences or Control Panel, click your operating system's appearance and display link and click your screen adjustment link. You may have to click your advanced settings link. Click your monitor tab and from there adjust you screen refresh rate. You may have to adjust your screen resolution before you refresh the screen rate. If you have to do this, make sure the screen resolution you choose supports you monitor's height and width as well as visibility. The higher the resolution, the higher the screen rate. The instructions I'm giving you may sound like this because I'm not sure what your operating system is. I'm not to familiar with Mac Operating Systems, but if you have a Windows Operating System and you need better detailed instructions, just reply back. I hope this decreases your screen flickering and gives you a better viewing experience.

Flickering is caused by the incorrect refresh rate being used by your graphics card, go into the graphics settings by right clicking your desktop and choose the correct resolution and refresh rate dependant on the screen size and options. TRYING ALL THE OPTIONS DOES NOT CAUSE ANY DAMAGE TO YOUR PC OR MONITOR. Just pick the setup that suits you.
