Moniter flicker Recently my monitor started to constantly flicker with little dots. The dots are only in a spefic part of my screen (a band of around about 2 inches on the right hand side of the monitor). I've looked on numerous blogs,and changing the refresh rate seems to be a good start but the only rate it allows is 60 hertz. Also I have an S3 VIA chrome9 HC IGP video card. In the settings it only recognises a CRT moniter but it's an LCD. Any help appreciated.

    I've checked the driver, and it is the correct one...

    Then i tried your second solution, but the only mode it allows (which isn't rediculously large or fussy is 1024 x 768 32 bit 60 hertz.

    Also, it was strange because at some stage the standard resolution options available changed form allowing only 3 diffrent modes, to all modes, and previously i was able to change the refresh rate to 75 (which solved the flicker) but now there is no option until the advanced tab, where it tells me it isn't compatable.

    Any other suggestions?

    Thanks again for your time.

Check whether there is any magnetic material near to the monitor(Speakers, Adaptor, UPS etc). Try again after removing it.

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.

Laptop malfunctioning

Connect any Desktop monitor to the Laptop and check whether the Display. if the display is fine on the Desktop monitor screen then it can be identified as the Laptop screen malfunctioning.
And if the Display has the same issue that on the Laptop screen
then it can be treated as the Display card issue.
However, it seems to be Harwre related issue. Get the laptop veriufied under Technical supervision to repair the Laptop's display card or the Laptop screen to be replaced if the display is fine on the Externally connectd Monitor.

Moniter back on whack!

sound like you have bad solder connections, sometimes the break is so small they can be hard to find. Unplug the unit for a short while & take it apart to look for bad connections, most likely they will be on the main board. Monitors have more shielding ( to remove interfearance) so it typically is a little harded to repair a monitor than a tv. good luck
