    I'm having the same problem.

    The flickering of the monitor is intermittent (on and off)

    A troubleshoot tip that I got was to change the refresh rate but I can't change the refresh rate (only option is 60hz)

    I've tried changing resolution...

    I tried uninstalling the driver (another troubleshoot tip) and reinstaling the video driver as well as reformatting my computer.(Last resort)

    It's still flickering. :(



    This PC is about 5 years old.

    Also... I hear like a squeaking sound coming from the monitor that I've never heard prior to having this issue.

MONITOR ABCs
The monitor is a hardware device which physically connects to your video card. The monitor allows information and current status be be visually outputted similar to a TV.
Screen Flickers - monitor.gif Like most TVs, the computer monitor has a CRT, or Cathode Ray Tube, which is found inside the computer monitor as illustrated in the above picture. The CRT is the main component and most expensive part within your computer monitor. Within the CRT are three electron guns, Red, Green and Blue. Each of these guns streams a steady flow of electrons, left to right, for each line of your monitor. As the electrons hit the phosphors on the CRT, the phosphor will glow certain intensities. As a new line begins, the guns will then begin at the left and continue right; these guns will repeat this process sometimes thousands of times until the screen has been completely drawn line by line. Once the phosphors on the CRT have been hit with an electron they will only glow for a short period of time; because of this, the CRT must be refreshed, which means the process will be repeated as explained above. If the video card's refresh rate is not set high enough, you may encounter a flicker or a noticeable steady line scrolling from the top to the bottom of your screen. If you are encountering this issue, resolutions have been described on our video card page.

MINIMUM RESOLUTION The size is an important factor of the computer's running resolution. When picking the resolution, try basing it off the monitor's size for best use. 13-inch 640 x 480 15-inch 800 x 600 17-inch 1,024 x 768 21-inch 1,280 x 1,024


Hope this works for ya/Please dont for get to vote.

Bad videocard is my bet. Could also be a bad monitor. I'd recommend hooking up a second monitor to test with. If it doesn't do it, bad monitor. If it does, you're probably looking at replacing the graphics card.

Lg env touch internal screen flickers white/colors after h20 expo


go ahead and take it apart... but be extra careful with the flex part,, dont use aclohol it may corrode some parts, try using lacquer flo, and dry it out with mild heat using hair blower or some sorts

maybe that would fix it, but if the lines you are saying doesnt go off, well you have no choice but to replace the lcd itself

Laptop screen constantly flickers and whites out


Your Bulb is DUE, you need to change it, Don't do it your self contains mercury. Your LCD is good IF you do not have bad PIXELS. This white and pink lines shows as pixel problem but it migth also short on LCD, if you placed something heavy on Laptop. You may remove and sent the LCD for repair or all laptop to tech.
You may also need to check inverter. I give service around the Country but it is up to you. My company name is JMC TECHS INC. Registered in Miami Florida. (Check SUNBIZ.com) jmctechinc@gmail if you like to contact me.

I have similar problem. I would like to know how to solve it.


No, this is not a battery problem. This is not a top screen problem as well. This is a bottom lcd problem.


The top screen flickers when the bottom lcd is messed up and the bottom screen flickers when its the top lcds problem.

Follow the links below. You can purchase a bottom LCD for cheap and there are instructions on how to change it.
