Asus HD 6870, flickering issue

Q: Asus HD 6870, flickering issue

First of all hello from a new user, I have a problem with my computer but I need help to nail it down to one part (I think it's the graphics card, but who am I to tell).
A friend of mine said people over here are very nice and competent so why not try to get help here.

Long story short, I played a game, Velvet Assassin, that is rather buggy (I.e. it didn't let me change the resolution to my native 1680x1050).
After some time the screen started flickering in complete white with some color bars here and there. I thought it was another bug on newer systems and changed the resolution; the problem seemed resolved.

Until my little brother started to play Forge of Empires, that little browser game, where the problem again occured at an even faster rate.

I hope you can help me, I made a short video of the issue, I know it's not of best quality, but maybe it helps.
Thank you in advance

Hi, I have a problem with my computer and I dont know if its the PSU or the graphics card and its a brand new computer. When I play games that uses the graphics card it will turn the pc full off, it will do this when I try to quit a game, change video setting while playing a game or even when im in the middle of a game. The graphics card is an Asus HD 6870 DirectCU AMD Radeon Graphics Card and the power supply is LC Power LCH600H-12 V2.31. If anyone could help me that would be great.

I am looking for something to run 2x DVI and HDMI TV all at the same time. Can 6870 do that? I currently have HD5570 and it can only do 2 monitors at a time.

Also is $80 decent for a **USED** 6870 or is there something better that I should be looking at for $80 to run 3 displays?

If there is something better, I would like to make sure there IS a fan. Not interested in fanless.

(EDIT: Seems theres a couple different versions of the 6870, this is the version I am looking at Radeon HD 6870 Video Card | system components | St. Catharines | Kijiji)

I've had this ASUS Q550LF laptop for a couple years now and it has been working perfectly. Today I have noticed at seemingly random times, the screen will flicker with a pink color. It first happened while I was watching videos, I restarted it and it seemed fine again but about 30 minutes later while I was on facebook the screen flickered pink once more. I think it may be a graphics card problem but I'm not sure, and I'm not sure how to go about checking or finding out the problem. Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.

Hi all. I just picked up an ASUS VH242H 1080p HD monitor. 23.5 or 24" newegg said 23.5 but not too sure. Seriously is awesome when playing games or watching video, but when I'm just sitting on the desktop there seems to be something wrong. The lines along the task bar seem to be blurry or flickering. Also when running an application like this website for instance, the text and links and lines all are blurry or flickering as well. Its actually really bad on this forum lol.

I currently have the resolution set to 1920x1080 and this seems to be the only resolution that this occurs on. All else its perfectly fine but just not the standard setting for this large monitor. I have not installed any drivers because I can't find any. I have an NVIDIA GeForce 7900 G/GTO.

Hi guys,
For about 5 months now I've been putting up with my laptop having screen difficulties as I've just been connecting it up to a external screen using a VGA cable. The basis of my situation is that anything displayed on my laptop screen doesn't display the right colours - they all have a gray tinge to them and it frequently flashes when i try to alter the screen (move it up and down). I've tried many things to resolve my issue (fn+C for asus splendid technology to alter the display, adjusted the screen graphics, adjusted the intel graphics) I've been floating around different forums and they haven't been able to help.

The laptops gray flickering tinge does NOT transfer onto my external screen, It's NOT always like this, the screen doesn't start having difficulties with colour until i alter the screen (move it up or down) or start running various programs/games. The laptop itself is about 2 years old and the warranty has run out so i cannot use it. I'm aware it could be a internal graphics card issue as the screen flickers when I move the screen.
On a side note; around 5 months ago i connected a new Samsung screen (which i am now using), around that time this issue started occurring.

I'm just wondering if there's something i can try before I need to take it to someone to repair it for me.

Thank you very much.

Lose cable. If you are comfortable talking your laptop apart then go ahead. and try re-seating the cable connections, secure them tightly to the connections, if that doesn't work then determine from there weather you need a new cable or screen.
If you do not feel comfortable talking it apart then take it to a local shop.

Hi all,

I just got a brand new Asus VH236H monitor from Newegg. Pulled it out of the box, set it up on my desk, plugged it in, connected it to my laptop (Acer Aspire 6920), and all was good. That was about 6 hours ago.

Now, I'm seeing horizontal flickering lines all over the screen. Some are thin lines, others are thick bands. They're constantly moving up and down the whole display. Did some research, and seems like when this happens, it happens on all inputs. But the funny thing is, for me the flickering lines are only visible when in VGA mode. When I switch to HDMI (my Playstation 3), all is well. No lines anywhere in sight. Unfortunately, I don't have any DVI devices to also check that input.

I've checked all the resolution/refresh rate options given to me, and they're set to the recommended Asus values (1920x1080, 60Hz).

Can anyone tell me if this is a defect with the monitor, or if I need to find some advanced setting somewhere, and change that.


EDIT: A friend of mine told me to unplug my laptop from its power-charger. And it worked. No more scrolling lines.
So what do I do now? I can't run my laptop without charging it, but while its charging, the monitor picks up interference from the power cables.

HI all,

I am having problems detecting the Xonar Pheobus and have tried all the pcie slots with no luck. Red and the grey - even the shorter grey slot.

Have disabled the motherboard's HD onboard sound too and still not detected in my devices......

The pcie cable is connected to the sound card and I have enough PSU to power all - Enermax 1250W.

When the card is inserted to the grey slots - The red light is seen through the control extension box (Headphone/Microphone Connector box) jack ports. However the green light is NOT seen AND the Xonar Phoebus logo on the card itself is lit (powered up)

However, when I insert the card into the red pcie slots these lights are not on.

One this else I noticed is the card DOES go warm over some time so tells me it is 'not' switched off........

I tried to install the driver and I get a message 'no card detected' etc etc.
Is there anyone kind enough to advise me their BIOS settings etc who has managed to get the Xonar to work properly. Did you have to adjust any BIOS settings from default to get the card to be recognised?

Printscreens would be cool if it is not too much of a bother.

Thank you in advance

Kind regards


A:Asus Xonar Phoebus and Asus Rampage 5 Extreme issue

The question(s) I have is ->
Am I missing anything when attempting to install the sound card? I have tried with no GPU drivers (including the Nvidia sound for the GTX 750 ti sc) / disabled onboard HD sound and still the sound card not detected.
Even in this motherboard, it should detect the sound card regardless of what sound source is set as default and then allow me to install it and set it as default (without messing about with the BIOS)?
Maybe my sound card has died when moving it from the last computer - Static death.....................

Hi All,

I'm trying to fix a flickering screen. I am pretty sure that it is a software related problem. It happened after I formatted and re installed XP professional. The reason I believe its a software issue is that it is not a constant problem. A lot of time it will be flickering and then you open up IE explorer and it immediatly stops. Then when you search something it will come back. It also sometimes happens during start-up so not sure if that means something. I have updated the BIOS based on Compaq website and updated all drivers. I should have mentioned I am talking about a Compaq Presario 2200 Notebook.

The flickering is horizontal lined where if fades dark and light. Sometimes its the entire screen other times its just near the top. Moving the position up and down has no effect on the flickering. (Another reason to think its software related). Also I don't have an external monitor to hook up to and see if it is hardware related unfortunatly.

If there is any questions I would be happy to help and any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!!

Thanks in advance.

Its this crazy flickering that keeps happening after playing games for a period. But when it happens in games like Skyrim, it does it in EVERY game then and windows explorer. Nothing else though. It only occurs in games like Skyrim, Tropico 5, Company of Heroes 2, Payday 2. Shadows of Mordor is another one. I have to restart my PC to get it to go away. But it comes back eventually, it usually takes like 30+ minutes to occur. Here's a gif: http://gyazo.com/8619db54132a8357122948e0bb27fed9 NOTE: It has never happened in the game on display, like I have that game at max settings and I can play it for 5 hours straight and it won't happen. ALSO, this is a VERY recent problem. I've clocked 50+ hours in Skyrim AND Payday 2 before this ever happened. One last thing, I have tried hooking up to another monitor, it occurs on that monitor as well so its not my monitor. I've tried a different DVI cable as well. I tried a fresh clean install of a new graphics driver. Specs: http://gyazo.com/2cf8050d81f429286ecf63f4e1739c26 http://gyazo.com/8560ee5315aff162dea8751e7d2c6efa

My laptop has had occasional problems with black flickering from day one, but now it's a pretty constant occurrence. I've done all the driver-type things but I really think it's a hardware issue, as slightly adjusting the screen often "fixes" the problem, at least for a while, and the flickering is never shown on duplicated screens. Here's mine: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w5sxB4GO6uo  I love this laptop when it works. But seeing the hundreds and hundreds of other similar comments and videos online is making me very frustrated. Why hasn't Lenovo acknowledged this as a hardware problem? Why are so many people sending their laptop in for repairs, Lenovo keeping the laptop for a month or more, then sending back an equally faulty unit? This is my work laptop so I can't just lose it for a month anyway. It just seems so unethical for Lenovo not to issue a recall on this product or refund people who have purchased them. Has anyone found a successful workaround yet? There are lots of videos of people taking their laptops apart and having some luck with tightening screws and so forth, but even some of those posts have comments later that it only worked for a little while...

Hello, I have a Samsung SyncMaster 204B LCD monitor that is flickering after being turned on from being off for more than half an hour or so.The screen appears to be very dull and flickers a bit for about a minute or two,until it "warms up" then the screen brightness and clarity becomes normal,and the flickering stops.It seems to work normally when left on indefinitely.

Is this an early sign of failure? Repairable at all? It's close to 4 years old.I paid $500 for it at the time (right before LCD prices dropped significantly ) so I'd like to get at least a couple more years out of it.

Any suggestions? Thanks for reading.

I'm looking for some help diagnosing a flickering screen problem I have with a Sony Vaio laptop. So, it's started happening recently when I turn it on, it flickers as it turns on, then eventually goes all black. Sometimes if I close the screen down it comes back on again for a few seconds. When I re-boot again it always has the same behaviour, flickers and then eventually goes black at some stage, not always at the same stage, sometimes I might get to log on, sometimes not. I've connected to an external monitor and everything works fine.

For me, it's not an inverter issue because I've seen inverter issues before and it was very consistent behaviour, the screen just blacks out consistently and you can see the screen with a torch, in this case, I can't really see screen with or it's very difficult to. If it is ccfl issue, I would've thought that bulb would be gone and that's it, it would just never light up....

One more thing that would indicate ccfl issue to me is if I turn it on and have the screen dimmed to it's lowest it works fine and stays on until I start to brighten it up again and then just goes black.

Any experts out there can diagnose this for me, I'm not sure if it is ccfl issue, and I don't want to go messing with it, I tried to replace a bulb once before and it was a disaster, not an easy process for a half amateur compared to replacing an inverter.

One other point is that there seems to be a... Read more

Bumped into this tftcentral.co.uk article by accident. It pretty much explains the intermittent flickering I noticed in my XPS 15 9550. DELL support could not figure that out themselves.
The temp solution was then to go to my driver colour settings and decrease the contrast and the brightness. Hopefully I will not need to change the settings again.

Hello, guys, as you can see in the print screens I attached, sometimes it's impossible to read anything on my screen, so forgive me if I post this on the wrong forum.

Starting this afternoon I started having a weird display issue. I'm using Windows 7 64-bit (latest SP) on Bootcamp in a Macbook Pro 13' (model 2011). Now almost always the screen is rendered illegible by some weird pixelated noise and flickering, with parts of the screen content missing (see pictures attached). As I move the mouse/type on the keyboard, sometimes the text/icon/image/whatever I'm trying to visualize appears again, sometimes not. I wasn't using the latest Nvidia drivers when it started (was ignoring the Nvidia Experience message saying that updates were available). So I thought it was a problem of outdated drivers. I updated the drivers, rebooted the system and the problem persists. When I boot the system on Mac OS, the screen is fine.

I wonder if this is some kind of virus/malware. i ran an AVG scan but it said my system was clean. Thank you very much for your help.

Hi, I just bought the Dell Inspiron 2in1 couple of months back and started having the problem of waving / flickering of screen. This flickering is more towards right side of screen and starts from there, but with time moves on to the whole screen. After restart it disappears for some time.
                         When I checked the graphics setting, the refresh rate is set at 60 pHz by default. When I changed the refresh rate to only other option of 48 pHz, problem is gone for now. Can some suggest what could be the problem, whether it is a software issue or hardware problem. What is the possible fix ? Thanks

Back in October I started noticing flickering green pixels on dark backgrounds on my screen, the flickering green pixels, when they are present are always in the same place.

The first thing I did was buy a new DVI cable and then I ran it from the monitor to a different DVI port in back of the GPU. The issue seemed fixed but then a day later the intermittent green pixels came back, at that point I totally uninstalled the newer Nvidia drivers I had recently installed using DDU and installed the drivers I never had issues with which were from early 2014. After I did that the problem seemed gone and everything was fine until last month when I replaced my mouse. I noticed my mouse pointer had three black dots following behind it in a horizontal pattern. I then removed the Nvidia drivers from early 2014 and installed the most current Nvidia drivers, I believe they're from the 14th of December. After I did this the three black dots following behind the mouse pointer vanished but a week or two later, the intermittent green pixels came back.

1. The intermittent green pixels do not show up in screenshots, I've taken numerous screenshots of the screen when they are present but in the screenshots they are nowhere to be seen.

2. They're showing up more often lately.

3. They don't seem to show up when if I set the display to a lower resolution or when I'm in the bios screen.

4. The GPU is a Nvidia 450 GTS and it is not overclocked and is usually running at 29c, the fan is runni... Read more

A:Flickering Green Pixel Issue = Monitor Or GPU

Hello and welcome Deviancy now my first thought was the monitor may be going south but in view of the changes around you swapping cables and drivers and the fact that the card is five years old now makes me wonder if the card is going south.

Have you access to another monitor to see if the same thing happens?

Second it may as well to test that card with this FurMark: VGA Stress Test, Graphics Card and GPU Stability Test, Burn-in Test, OpenGL Benchmark and GPU Temperature | oZone3D.Net now this can put a fair bit of stress on the card so best run when you are nearby to check things like temps etc.

I bought this laptop back in September-ish of 2014. It runs perfectly fine still and always has but the image on my screen has been a problem since probably December of 2014. I know that seems ridiculous for me to just now be bringing it up but I honestly dont use it that often and only for pleasure so I always put it off and forgot about it.

The screen basically flickers blue in certain spots. Corners of windows, icons, links, etc. Its almost as if it was highlighted... I am not sure what it is. Sometimes it randomly goes away but then comes back within a few days.

If i do a screen grab of the blue flickering it doesnt appear in the jpg. So i took a picture with my cell phone. I uploaded that pic as well as my system specs to this thread.

Anyone please help lol....Bestbuy within 10 minutes told me it would cost me $200 for a new screen without even doing anything besides comestically looking at the screen and laptop. HP has been beyond awful in their "support"

Hi there, I bought a Lenovo Yoga 910, Intel Core i5, 8GB RAM, 256GB SSD 4K laptop in September 2017. I've had no major issues with it until the past few days. What is happening is that when I'm watching a video, on seemingly any player, after a while the screen starts going crazy, it's fairly hard to describe so I'll link a video to it. https://sendvid.com/eoi9k12k Once that starts to happen, any time I mouse over anything the screen flickers, and anytime I open anything (e.g. an internet tab/the start menu) it goes back to the original freak out style. If I manage to minimise everything and sit on the home screen with the mouse not touching any icons then the screen is fine.  I feel like there was an update fairly recent prior to this starting, so whether that is the cause or not I'm not sure. I'm a standard computer user, so for information that is required I'll likely need pointing out how exactly I go about finding said information or performing said task if it's not pretty basic.  Thanks in advance for any advice.

hi, Today when i turned on my computer everything was fine. I used it for a short while and proceeded to put it in standby mode for about 1 hour or so, when i woke it from standby i immediately noticed that in the top right and bottom left corner the screen is flickering [as though i have set the refresh rate lower, but i have checked and it was not changed from 85hz] I am prone to migrains so i absolutely have to have the refresh rate set as high as possible to use my computer and it was never been a problem. The weird thing is that sometimes it stops flickering and goes back to normal, but that doesn't last long. I'm completely at a loss as to what is causing it as i didn't change anything between yesterday and today. I tried reinstalling my gpu driver with no luck, i've checked the cords and they are all plugged in correctly. My computer is by no means showing any different behaviour it runs just as good as always just this flickering. unfortunately i do not have another monitor so if anyone has any idea what this may be i would be very grateful. - Could it possibly be that the power cable from my monitor to plug socket is dying? It almost appears more as the corner of the screen is shaking slightly.

-UPDATE. My mothers room is right next to mine and i happened to go into her room and notice she had a heater directly on the wall separating our rooms so i turned it off [while the flickering was happening] and i moved it and so far i haven't experienced the flickering bu... Read more

I experienced screen freezing problem and overheating, I need to close and reopen the lid to make the mouse move.  I tried to resolve this issue by reinstalling the OS. Unfortunately, after reinstalling OS, I got a new issue: screen flickering. It happened just entering the windows and randomly when using. Screen freezing seems solved but the new issue comes. By the way, the keyboard still very hot though I am in a room with AC.

Hi,  I have a Lenovo Z50-70 laptop(GeForce 840m(4gb) and i7).  When I plug in my external monitor using VGA cable, it starts flickering and looks like its trying to auto adjust every 3-4 seconds. I have latest Intel HD and Nvidia display drivers installed. I tried to attach the same monitor to my old laptop and everything works fine, so its not cable or monitor problem. Also tried to remove laptop charger, changing display settings etc., and the problem still remains. No idea what else can I do to prevent this permanently.Interesting part: When I launch any game then flickering goes away. When I exit the game, flickering comes back. Its so weird. Thank you in advance for your help.

A:Lenovo Z50-70 external monitor flickering issue.

Check the output frequencies the monitor/display is getting. Either they're exceeding the display capability and/or the refresh freq is off, 60HZ is the norm for flat panel displays while some will handle higher up to 75HZ but only lower will be visible to the eye. The resolution may also be wrong as it may not be detected to set the correct resolution for that display as well.

I still can't use my touchpad.  I've tried driver updates, checked f6 but still nothing.  Due to the limited number of usb ports I need the touch pad to work.  Even when the touchpad is not turned off (f6) there is no synaptics drives listed in device manager.  Even when I run Lenovo's system check for upadate it does not identify that it is missing.  Also, from what I can tell there isn't even a serivce listed in Computer Management for the touchpad / synaptics. Please provide me with a solution as quickly as possible.  Thank you.  Peter D

Hello, I have a Thinkpad x270 laptop running Windows 10.Laptop is connected to external DELL P2719H monitor through HDMI cable. Resolution is Full HD. I am using wireless keyboard and mouse.I have updated all the drivers in 2 steps - first, I did "Windows Updates", and then, second, I went through all devices in "Device Manager" in order to update all the remaining drivers.  Problem is the following -  my display has flickering issues. Generally it happens when I move the mouse. You can see this on the video below. Flickering on the video bellow happens when I go over the small video built-in into the website. This happens couple of times per day. I thought that it might be caused by wireless mouse or HDMI cable or Display, but my testing showed thata) similar flickering issues sometimes happen with mouse turned OFF and disconnected from the laptop andb) I don't experience such issues with the same HDMI cable, same DELL P2719H display, but with different laptop running Windows 7. So I think it might be caused by x270 or Windows 10 problems. What are your thoughts? What troubleshooting steps could be made?
