ive just set up my father in laws new flat screen acer 22 inch lcdit has very noticeble screen flickeri have it on the highest reccomendation of 1680 x 1050 he has xp with 512 mb ram and onboard graphics cardit was powering the old monitor not too badany ideas why the screen flicker is therehe has bad eyesight and had hos old monitor on 800 x 600 i changed that and made his fonts xlarge and shpwed him how to zoom web pagessurley ill not need to put his new flatscreen resolution way down to thatwill
Maybe his on-board graphics are not up to the job of running the new monitor - in fact, probably more than a 'maybe' ........ even a cheap graphics card would be better than on-board!
This looks like the driver for the on-board card is having difficulty refreshing the screen. update the on-board graphics driver.If this does not work, post the on-board name and operating system...
Agree with TT on this, but worth a try with the driver...
Is the cable from pc to monitor all one cable ? I had problems with a monitor a while ago because I had an extension cable linked in to lengthen distance between pc and monitorAlso check refresh fate against manufacturers spec.
hi guys thanksits the one cable, not a long oneits more than likely the graphics card as i thought it might bei didnt think of tryng to upgrade the driverhow do i do that?how do i check or alter the refresh rate a well?i might just buy him a new graphics cardcheerswill
If you know the motherboard details, you should be able to download drivers from the makers site.
IIRC the refresh rate for a TFT monitor is 60MHz or slightly higher - it's not the 85MHz minimum normally required for a CRT monitor.If you right click on the Desktop>Properties>Settings tab>Advanced button>Adapter tab>click on List All Modes, the colour/resolution/refresh rates of which a graphics card is capable are fully listed.You can click on any combination as required to highlight it and set it - ensure that Windows doesn't have to Reboot for the choice to become effective.
thanks to everyone who helpedill be working on it in the morningim sure ill be back with some questionswill
hi guysive tried to fix it by checking the refresh rateas stuartli sates, but the card says it supports 1680 x 1050 and has a true colour 60hz ratethe flicker goes away when you change the resolution down to 1280 x 768but seems a shame to have this sreen and not be on the big resolutionwill
It would appear that your card either doesn't support this higher resolution or the graphics drivers might need updating.In any case, if your friend has poor eyesight, increasing the resolution will presumably not help him.
