Did you try this?


Ok, I have tried this with other monitors and I get the same affect. Across my moniter there are black lines. It starts from one part of the screen, where some type of font or dark color is, and continues across. Is there something I can do to fix this? I think it's not the monitor(unless both monitors tested have the same problem), so what is it in the computer that needs to be replaced and/or fixed?

-check the cable.Monitor flicker cab be caused by poor cable connections

-If the monitor has adegauss button to eliminate accumulated or stray magnetic fields, press it.

-Check the wheter something is providing a high amount of electrical noise.For example you may be able to stop a flicker by moving the fan to a different outlet.Bad fluorescent lights,large speakers, or two monitors placed close to each other might cause interference.Try moving the monitor to an altogether different circuit.

-If the vertical scan frequency is below 60Hz, a screen flicker may appear in the normal course of operation

-TRy using a different refresh rate

-Try a different monitor set in the same location

-Check the control pannel , display, settings to see if a high resolution is selected.Consider these issues

The video card may not support this resolution/color setting

the monitor may not support this rsolution or refresh rate

-Check the software configuration on the computer .For windows 9X , boot into safe mode, which forces the OS to use a generic video driver and resolution
