sounds like ya drivers for ya graphics card have got corrupted. what ya will need to do is uninstall them, load windows standard vga drivers, reboot and if everything is ok re-install the drivers for ya graphics card again.

You may also be trying a resolution or, more likely, a refresh rate that your monitor or graphics card can't cope with.

A refresh rate of 85MHz is more than ample and will avoid flicker for 99 per cent of the population.

Your graphics card and monitor manuals will detail what resolution and refresh rates are supported.

Try what goonerbill suggests and then configure the settings again.
