Screen Flickers

  1. Just wanted to know if the video card drivers are loaded in safe mode? My screen keeps flickering when I bootup and after closing down programs. It also flickers in safe mode. Sometimes it loses all signal but comes on again shortly after. Could this be the sign of my screen going bye bye? It's a 100hz refresh CRT.

    your monitor may not support the 100HZ refresh rate.. i would drop it down to 60-75 HZ..

    if it doesn't flicker then your problem is your monitor doesn't support that refresh rate.

    Thanks for the reply. Nah I just tried with a different monitor and alls fine, under a refresh rate of 60 my screen still flickers. It appears that this monitor is going to hell along with every other piece of damned electronic equipment I own.
