Flickering monitor

By meredog

  1. i began getting a flickering accross my monitor screen yesterdday (most noticable on white screen). Is there a way to determine if it is the monitor or something else? i reset monitor to 85 hertz but it made no difference.
    it is a T4170 e machine and a 19" Envisision monitor (both about 3 years old)

    bear with me trying to figure out how this works Herb

    I would suggest that you try the monitor on another system, Then you would know whether it is the monitor that`s faulty.

    thought of that , was just hopeing there might be a way to check it without going thru that.
    thanks

    Possibly borrowing a monitor from a friend and trying it on your system???

    There`s not many ways to test a monitor other than what I`ve suggested.

    85 Hz is really high, You should not get flicker above 60Hz.
    Maybe you're getting some electrical inteference?
