An overheated video card will do this when it is under high load, among other problems, like artifacts, lines, delayed and choppy video, etc. Cool your system somehow. Put a small fan by your PC.

My emachines lcd flatscreen monitor is flashing


No. You have a bad capacitor/s on the monitor's power board suggest replacing with new ones. Here is what a blown capacitor looks like. If you are comfortable fixing this yourself, good, you will save money this way. If it isn't a bad cap then it is probably a bad IC.

Need large disc support for old emachine, flash bios? or try restore cds?


Hi,
flashing a bios, can render your machine/motherboard useless.
You should always ensure any bios download is from a trusted source. if you experience a power failure, or an incomplete bios file. your computers as good as dead.
Windows 95/98 only supports disk drives to a certain capacity. if you updated to windows 2000/ME/XP your problems may be solved. I,d certainly try that first.
Bios flashing Last resort, even after finding a reliable bios update. also ensure the bios file is 256mb-512mb or equivalent. as this is standard bios file size.
Finally check that your hard-drive does not have a jumper ( Small white/black ) plastic block restricting the drives registered size.
When you install windows XP, it will ask you if you wish to enable LBA ( large block Allocation ) Select Y ( yes )
