Flickering Screen

About once every minute the screen on our pc flickers (it's like a blink - off then on) but there is another problem. There are four users on our pc and this flicker only happens on my settings.

The only thing I have done recently (19th June) is to install some Vivitar software for a new digital camera.

Any advice greatly appreciated.

Hi, uninstall the Vivitar software, then see if the screen still flickers.

PS - if the Vivitar software is mainly for moving images to PC, get a Card reader instead.

I uninstalled the Vivitar PCCam driver and it was still flickering. Then I remembered about the Ulead photo software that had also been installed and removed that. It appears to be sorted now but I won't close this thread just in case the problem continues.

Thanks to all who posted.
