Samsung 245BW Monitor Flicker

  1. Hello all, I'm new to the community :)

    I'm having trouble with a monitor that I got almost a year ago. It's the Samsung 245BW.
    So, the problem is not really a flicker in the way you might think. The "flicker" is actually something that happens every 10 seconds or so, and the whole screen spazzes and turns black for about half a second. The intervals get longer and longer, and the screen just stops "flickering" after around 30 minutes of use (and afterwards works normally). I have tried this monitor with two different computers, and the monitor shows the same exact symptoms.

    I'd really appreciate it if anyone can tell me how to fix this problem. Thanks!

    The monitor is bad. I have the exact monitor in front of me and it works fine. They are good expensive monitors. I'm sure you can have it fixed. Mine is about 6 months old. How are you running it? DVI or VGA?
