OK, so you tried different resolutions...but have you changed the refresh rate? Right-click Desktop, properties, settings tab, click Advanced button, go to Monitor tab and change Screen refresh rate to 75 or whatever the highest setting is that your monitor will support.

Have you updated drivers?  http://www.ati.com/support/driver.html
The Catalyst 3.9 release is the newest.

Might sound crazy, but trying running your monitor through the DVI port with the DVI to VGA adapter. I get strange interference on my 9500pro when I use the vga port. I moved it to the DVI and it fixed my problem. Just an idea.

It might be your monitor is unable to handle the resolution your card is outputting.  Try setting to a lower, standard resolution and then increase until it happens again.  This will at least identify what the problematic setting is.

Thanks for everbodies input. It now turns out that the card is faulty and has been exchanged. I was told it was probably an oscilator problem

Sorry you didn't get the answer you wanted.  So what do you want to do with this question?  You have a few options:

1) Click the "Accept Comment as Answer" link on an applicable comment, and grade accordingly
2) If you want to split the points, click the "Split Points" link at the bottom of the page to have the points split between the Experts which helped you the most with resolving the question.  
3) If you feel that we didn't really help you and would like a point refund, post a request at Comm. Support to have your points refunded and the question moved to PAQ (Previously Asked Questions) for the benefit of others with a similar question.
4) Be a sorry excuse for an EE Member and abandon the question.  This is an all-too-common occurance around here, but its an option (you won't get the points back in that case...)

Thanks!
