I recently started having this problem where my display is flickering. I noticed this when playing ArmA 2, the colour of the sky flashes red. It's not too bad but it's not unnoticed. Also, when I get closer to my monitor the picture kinda shakes.
LG flatron W1934S wide 1440x900 res. monitor
ATI Powercolor 6870 1GB 256bit connected via the VGA adapted attached.
Drivers are up to date.
Are you able to capture it in screenshots? Are you using a CRT monitor? Do you have any magnets near your PC?
If I manage to capture it with FRAPS for example that means GPU is faulty? Because if monitor is faulty I wouldn't be able to capture it with recording software. Has to be that way, right?
I didn't remember to do that earlier, THANK YOU VERY MUCH!
If you can capture it with screenshots or recording software it totally eliminates chances of monitor or cable being faulty.
Though of course, you'd have to send those screenshots/videos to another PC/upload them to youtube because your monitor could display the recorded content badly as well .
Yeah, that would be stupid to do, hahahaha!
I found the manual of the monitor and it says that if you encounter blurred screen, blurred letters, screen flicker or tilted screen you should use the auto/set button.
What I am thinking is that somehow, even tho I play every game in monitors native res, it switched resolution or something for a second and then it blurred and started to waver my display.
