When I start my computer, the monitor flickers rapidly for 15-20 seconds then runs fine. The same thing usually happens when the computer wakes up after a couple hours of idling. I've tightened all of the connections, but it hasn't made any difference. My video card is less than 6 months old and had run without this problem for ~3 months. The flickering started about 6 weeks ago and never occurs once the computer passes that initial period of flickering. Thanks.

Do you have a spare screen to try out? If you do - try another screen. If the other screen does the exact same thing it might be your video card. If it doesn't do the same thing, your LCD screen might be on its way out.
