cjones1344 Posted August 28, 2006 Report Share Posted August 28, 2006 i have an asus z71v with a geforce 6600 go 128 meg card. its a 2ghz pentium m processor and i have 2gigs of ram. currently i have an acer 1916w 19inch widescreen lcd with a native resolution of 1440x900 connected to the vga out on the laptop. its set on horizontal span with a resolution of 2880x900. when i first got the monitor it worked great on this resolution connected to the laptop. about a month ago though, a horizontal flicker appeared. its like lines across the screen flash lighter all the way up the screen. it almost looks like a horizontal refresh issue. i know its not the monitor because i've hooked it up to other computers and it works fine, i know its not the horizontal span because i've set it as the primary display and turned the laptop display off and it still does the flickering. whats even weirder is that when i do anything that required video processing power, like move windows around for instance, the flicker gets way worse. i have the refresh rate set at 60hz and the monitor's osm shows the refresh at 55khz horizontal 59 hz vertical. the computer shows my lcd as a crt screen in the nview menu, so i thought maybe that could be part of it. i have installed monitor drivers multiple times with different drivers and let the computer redetect the monitor. i've redone the video card drivers 3 times with a different version each time. i have no idea whats causing it and its driving me nuts, i cant even use photoshop because of the grey background because the flicker is so bad its maddening. any help will be really appreciated.
