Screen Flickering

I am having a problem with screen flickering on mky Monitor.

I have got a Radeon 9700 Graphics card and Windows XP Home Edition, and my settings are on 800 x 600 (32 colours).

I have since installed a driver update and still the screen flickers.

Does anybody know what causes this problem and a possible solution.

What have you got your refresh rate set at?

If your refresh rates are OK, I find that my screen flickers if I turn the PC on before the monitor .

I know tis isn't really related, but if youve got a Radeon 9700 you are able for much higher settings, anything up to and above 1,600x2,400 (32-BIT colour)

Piggy,Piggy, even though the card is capable of a high refresh rate, the monitor may not be, and setting too high a rate on the card may damage the monitor. J.

Make sure you are not near any magnetic fields generated by a electric motor. My monitor flickers when my wife puts the tumble drier on which is down stairs!Only in the left hand corner tho.
