Flicking LG 795FT monitor

Hi gang, back for some advice. My LG monitor has recently started flickering. I thought it was possibly due to a bad connecting or localised over heating. I carefull blew out the dust from within the PC, removed and reseated the Nvidia video card, downloaded and installed the latest XP drivers, pressed degauss and still have a flickering screen. Not constantly, but annoying. The sides of the display sometimes has jagged edges. The LG monitor is just about 3 years old and almost out of warranty, just my luck. Any ideas as to what I check next?

Try the degauss option under the OSD settings from the front of the monitor. It may help.

Diodorus Siculus, thanks for the advice, have just tried that and it seems to have improved. I thought that I had tried degauss yesterday, must have been something to do with the full moon!!

If it's only "improved" and not fixed and you have a 3 year warranty send it back before it runs out, it should work perfectly. Even if they turn around and say it's fine it will still probably receive a service.

JonnyTub, thanks for the advise. I got in touch with LG by e-mail, they suggested that I ring the service desk. They were very helpful, checked the warranty and found that although the monitor was out of the actual 3 year warranty from date of purchase, that according to their records it was still in warranty. To my surprise, they offered a monitor swap over. So I now have a brand new LG monitor, at no cost to me. Brilliant response from a manufacturer.
