What model and manufacturer is the monitor? Is it an LCD flat-panel or a CRT monitor? Honestly I've never had a flat-panel flicker. If it's a CRT there might be something we can do about it.

So, since then the computer has been unplugged and plugged back in. Maybe you have a loose connection. Try reseating the video card. Also, is the computer and monitor plugged into the same power strip? Try seeing if you can run a strip from another circuit breaker like from across the room and put the monitor on it.

Does it only flicker in full-screen mode or have you tried playing the games in a window? Maybe you're trying to play in a resolution that differs from the monitor's preferred resolutions?

I run my games in 1920-1080 what it can do and yes i have tryed it in windows mode. Even when I Minimize the game my monitor still will flicker but when I trun the game of every thing is ok. It dost not seem to matter what setting the game is in. It can be in very low and still wil do it.

How strange. Like I said, all the LCD monitors I've used have been very solid, so I can't imagine it's a refresh issue. Is it all your games, or specific ones?

I am just at a lost with this.

Oh. Have you tried swapping the video card? Doesn't sound like it's an issue with the monitor.

befor I got my Evga GTX 470 i was running 2x 9800gt's in sli and had the same problem and just got the new gpu about 2weeks ago now.

when this all started was when I moved into my new place (2 months ago) all was fine in my old place.

I had the same problem recently. Re-installed windows, that fixed it. Must have become corrupted over time.

I have had the same problem with one of my monitors. I would first try updating your graphics drivers to the latest version and see if that fixes the problem. If not, try a slightly older version of the driver, or even try uninstalling the driver and using the built in VGA driver.

I had this problem when I upgraded to a newer version, so I downgraded and that fixed it. A few months later, I upgraded to the newest one, and the problem was fixed, just give a couple different drivers a shot.

Honestly it sounds like a video-card-driver issue.

Go to PC Pitstop & run their battery of tests. Once completed take a screen shot of the "video-card performance score". Then remove that Video Card driver & install another. Then rerun the test & compare the performance scores. You may be surprised at the difference in score from one driver to the next.

I did this once with a nVidia Card in finding the driver that gave me the best performance. One point of interest it wasn't the latest driver from nVidia that scored highest, rather it was a older Driver built by MSI for the nVidia card that scored the highest & gave the best performance.
