Look at you video output speed.

<Control panel>::<display>settings tab::advanced button::monitor tab

once there it should shown you a slow refresh rate, set higher & the 'flicker' should dissipate, you may find that you'll want to update your video adapter as well.

How to adjust or change a monitor's refresh rate.


If you've ever used a CRT monitor, you know that fine-tuning your refresh rate is essential. The refresh rate of a display is measured in Hertz (abbreviated Hz) and specifies the number of times per second that a display is illuminated.<br /> <br /> Setting the refresh rate to 60 Hz - a common default value - tells the monitor to redraw itself 60 times per second. For most people, that setting on a CRT monitor is too slow, resulting in an annoying flicker that can cause headaches, eyestrain, and fatigue. Bumping the refresh rate to a higher number can reduce that flicker, as long as the monitor itself can handle the faster rate.<br /> <br /> If you're using an LCD monitor then a safe refresh rate lies in the 60Hz-75Hz range. A greater refresh rate when it comes to LCD's means greater performance.<br /><br /> <b><u>How to adjust the refresh rate</u></b><br /> Firstly you will need to right click on your desktop background and select <b>Properties</b>.<br /> <img src="slasher_x_72.JPG" /> <br /> This will display the <b>Display Properties</b> window as show below.<br /> <img src="slasher_x_73.jpg" /> <br /> You will need to click the <b>Settings</b> tab.<br /> <img src="slasher_x_74.JPG" /> <br /> Once in the <b>Settings</b> tab you will need to click on the <b>Advanced</b> button.<br /> <img src="slasher_x_75.JPG" /> <br /> Then click on the <b>Monitor</b> tab.<br /> <img src="slasher_x_76.JPG" /> <br /> Here you can change the screen's refresh rate. Make sure the box next to <b>Hide modes that this monitor cannot display</b> is ticked. After you have selected the refresh rate you wish click <b>OK</b>. It would be a very good idea if you have the user's manual for the monitor handy just so that you can see what the manufacturer suggests the refresh rate should be set to.

Flickers all day long, does not stop. should I just buy a new monitor. downloaded drivers, didn't help. any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.


Is it a CRT? If it is a CRT, then it's probably dying and you'll need a new monitor. However it would be a good idea to test another monitor before actually buying, since it could be your video card too.

Display starts out OK, but after a few minutes it begins to flicker in the upper corners, and the turns on and off a few times before staying black?! Everything else seems to function OK.... BIOS issue???...


please check the monitor or LCD that you have. because the computer will not flicker if there is a problem on the display. isolate it. use other monitor or LCD then check if it flickers again.

I have a 19inch LCD monitor and the main menu resolution screen keeps blinking and wont go off. Have tried to disable it, different settings but it still does it. Can you help please


Try setting your computer itself to a lower resolution first say

1024 x 768

It may be that you are pushing the resolution to high for the monitor to handle

No sync means no video signal to the monitor. The rest sounds like a corrupted OS. This could be from a number of reasons, including a virus. If you have NORTON or MacAfee, Your open to a lot of attacks. Get AVG free, and use Mozilla instead of IE.
The reason the fans come on full speed is the MB senses a high temp on the CPU, until the bios fan control takes over after POST. This is normal on most systems.

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.
