Re: my Monitor flickers when computer starts
If "messing" around with the CRT connection on the back of the monitor causes it to work then I suspect there is some physical damage to. Specifically what connection/connector did you mess with? I can give you more advice if you give me more to go on.

If your LCD TV or monitor has stopped working, or is displaying one of the following symptoms, then it's a candidate for some new capacitors
- Flickering screen
- Screen image disappears after several seconds
- Dim screen
- Slow start
- Power LED on, but no picture
- Unusual colors and/or lines
The primary cause of LCD TV and monitor failure is caused by faulty capacitors. You can examine the capacitors in your LCD TV or monitor and actually see if they are bad.
If they appear bulged on top, then they need to be replaced.
New capacitors will solve a host of problems in LCD monitors and TV's and will extend the life of your monitor or TV by several years.
Check the cables, connectors and connections.
Take it to a repair shop.
screen is going bad which is why its flickering and has the lines across the screen. Theres a board behind the lcd and when that doesn't process the voltage properly it can cause the screen to flicker. White lines across the screen means the screen is going bad. At this point unless your monitor is under warranty, go ahead and replace it.
Check the cable. Swap to a different cable if possible to rule that out.
Check the refresh rate of your monitor. Most monitors have options for this via a Menu button on the screen itself. If you find it, change it to 60 hertz
Check the refresh rate of the monitor from your operating system/video card's software. In Windows, right click on the desktop, click Properties, then the Settings tab, then Advanced. Change it to 60 hertz if it's anything different.
It could be faulty but hopefully not.
Couple of things there to try...let us know how you go
