    Thought I would post in here since not much traffic in the other PC part, basically since I did a fresh install of windows my monitor keeps flickering and it is getting really annoying, I uninstalled and reinstalled the drivers for my graphics card (Nvidia Gefore 520GT 2GB) still no luck.

    [EDIT] ADMIN DELETE THIS POST, had help elsewhere.

    Rather than asking it to be closed, why not say what the problem turned out to be? I recently had a flickering monitor and suspected my card or TFT was on its way out.

    My symptoms were that it flickered uncontrollably for approx a minute, really quickly at first (so fast that the mouse would dissapear) then slowly flicker less and less per second as such until it settled.

    I tried drivers, and then after dismantling and reseating the card and removing all cables to the monitor thougt I had resolved it, but it quickly returned and after testing it on my TV, found it was the TFT itself and so I replaced it by buying one from someone called 'NintendoJoe' from these very forums.

    Yes it was the monitor itself lol, I forgot I had a VGA connection on my TV and tested that and it worked just fine.
