Sounds like the freq detection relay.  Goto properties of the diplay card and goto advanced and on the adapeter tab choose the REFRESH rate start at 60 and work your way up, if it still does it at 60 u might want to get the monitor checked.

hope this helps.

ezy2, go to the safe mode-device manager-monitor. See if you have more than one device there. Remove all of them. Shut down the computer with your monitor power off, too. After 15 min. Switch it on again. Start the computer to normal mode. The monitor will be redetected. Ensure that both normal mode and safe mode there is only one monitor device there. Inspect the stability of your monitor.
