Hi foomouse! Try the following solutions. If none of them work, it's time to get a new monitor unfortunately.

1. With everything turned off, including your power cords, make sure everything is securely plugged in. Many times people swivel their monitors to adjust them and the cord gets loose in the back.

2. Update your video drivers which can be found in many places on the web.

3. If this just happened recently, do a system restore back to the last time you remember the monitor was working properly. It should be under Programs>>Accessories>>System Tools>>System Restore.

Hope one of these works for you!

This is a new monitor, had it running 2 days, screen started flickering on/off every 8 seconds, then it went dead. All connections were tight. I just plugged in a old monitor to get on line since I am...


The monitor you just bought died - hardware failure. Take it back to the one from which you bought it and either replace it or get your money back.

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.

My screen below the taskbar keeps on flickering


that sounds like a either a monitor issue or video card issue. in most cases, if it is a video card, you wouldn't see the image on the screen. I would try the monitor, if you had it for quite a while, it is possible that the monitor is going bad.

I know it is not software problem.

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.
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.

Hi, I have a problem with


The high voltage (HV) flyback transformer is a very possible cause of this. This could be repaired by a qualified technician, but the cost may not be worth it. New 17" monitors can be acquired for free sometimes (think craigslist)

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.
