Once my PC has been on a while, the display starts to "flash" intermittently from bright to dark, sometimes rapidly, also at times when i boot up, there are missing elements of the desktop, or black borders around any display shown. checked all connections, reinstalled driver for monitor, what next i can only wonder!?, its making the thing unuseable and its as well i don't have epilepsy!! Any ideas gratefully accepted.

Sounds like the Backlight is failing. Not sure how to replace lamp on that make. Try contacting LG support.
