LCD Monitor Flicking

Heyas,

When I turn on my LCD monitor flickers for a period before it stablises. I have already changed the LCD monitor cable and that hasn't helped.  Is this a problem with my video card or my monitor.

Thank you.

Did you tried increasing the refresh rate of the monitor to a higher better value?

70 or 75 HZ may be

Test your computer on another monitor.

If there is no problem there then it is probably the original LCD.
If there is a problem then it is probably your computer/video card.

I agree with dbrunton and that you need to test out another monitor/PC. But it sounds like your monitor is going. If the monitor flickers on another PC then it is probably the backlight that is going out since you already replaced the cable. If so you can replace the backlight (its not that hard of a job) but it might be cheaper to buy another monitor.

most probably a monitor problem, often leaking or bulging capacitors
