TFT Screen Constantly flashing on & off

  Audio~~Chip 12:28 02 Oct 2009

New build machine on WinXP Pro re-using my 3 yr old Viewsonic 19" TFT.

CoolerMaster 700w Modular ATX 2.3
Asus P5QL Pro Skt 775 Bios 1004 as supplied
Intel Quad Core 9550 2.83GHz 12MB L2 Cache, 1333
Crucial matched DDRII 1067MHz 2x 2GB Dims fit in A1 & B1
Noctua HSF
Powercolour 4850 PCS+ 512MB GDDR4 PCi Express
Samsung SATA DVD Wtr
Western Digital 500GB Caviar Blue

Problem, after about 15mins the screen starts flickering on & off constantly but machine stays on and windows is fine. If quick enough I can navigate in windows but only just abit at a time.

Installed XP last night, but didn't get any drivers in. Have managed to get drivers installed now. All manually downloaded to get the latest. Not using any of the Asus features like AsusGate and things

Going to try and CRT monitor for a while and will post back to update within an hour. Luckily I have just bought 2 Samsung SM2494HM screens, one for my new build when its working ok.

I suspect the fault between the screen of the PCI-Express card but will have to try the CRT first. Any forum group members have any suggestions what to look for. Temps are under the 38's C for both Motherboard and CPU with side panel off.
