Monitor Image Flickers, Shakes, and Jumps at Some MS Sites

Q: Monitor Image Flickers, Shakes, and Jumps at Some MS Sites

When I visit some MS sites, my desktop monitor image shakes, flickers, jumps, etc. It does it only on the MS sites, especially Windows Sky Drive. Dell Inspiron All in One, 2320, Win 7 Home Premium, 64 bit, 23 inch Dell LCD monitor, 1920 X 1080 resolution (recommended), refresh rate 60Hz (none other offered). I have a Dell 1720 laptop, Win 7, 32 bit, 17 inch monitor, and the monitor image is stable at all MS sites, including Windows Sky Drive. Does anyone else have this problem, or does anyone have an opinion about this behavior? Since my laptop is stable at the sites, it obviously is not a site problem. UPDATE: Just so other users will know, I now have Firefox 27.0.1 and IE 11. The shaking, flickering, and jumping has returned on all MS sites while using Firefox, but is still stable with IE 11. If anyone has solved this problem, I'd like to know, although I assume the only cure will have to come from Mozilla.

Preferred Solution: Monitor Image Flickers, Shakes, and Jumps at Some MS Sites

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi bobhist,

Welcome to Seven forums.

Please let us know if you have checked it in a different browser as well on the system. If it was working earlier you could perform a system restore:

If this doesn't work then kindly check the system under safe mode with networking and let us know the results of the same:

I have an IBM 2248 monitor & a Cirrus 5446 PCI graphic adaptor.
My PC mother board is a Gigabyte K7 with a 850mhz proccessor.
I am using WIN98 second edition.
My Display settings are 800x600 at 24Bit colours.

Until recently this set up has run OK but recently the screen image has started to shake in zig zags. The only way to stop it doing this is to drop the colour setting to 256colours or drop the screen area to 640x480.

I have checked the devise manager in the system control panel but it says that both my graphic adaptor & monitor are working properly.

I don't know what the problem is and I don't want to fix what isn't broken can any body help me, please?

A:The Image on my monitor screen shakes

Change the refresh rate and see if that has any effect.

Look at the environment around the monitor, for any device that is mains powered. Or the cable to a mains powered device. Shift the monitor and see if it changes.

CRT monitors are sensitive to magnetic fields within a few feet, and the field from the AC mains will cause a similar proble.

The monitor is a Hyundai W241D, not quite three years old. I'm a student, so it gets transported between home and University regularly (three months at Uni, then a month at home, three months at home during the Summer), but, after three years and a total of eighteen journeys, the monitor has only just started displaying the problems. It's also recently that I've noticed a lot of heat coming from the monitor - much more than normal (I have a second, identical monitor which is only a year old that runs a lot cooler).

The problem: after a while (maybe half an hour, forty-five minutes), the image will start to jitter at the top of bottom of the monitor. The moment I open a window (anything will do it), the image flickers violently, often overlapping on itself and sometimes even flipping itself entirely, so the bottom of the window appears at the top of the screen, and vice versa.

Usually, the monitor is connected via DVI, but I've tried it on VGA and HDMI and the problem is the same. I've ruled out the cables and the graphics card (I've tried the cables with my second monitor over periods of hours, with no problems, and I've swapped ports on the graphics card, so that my second monitor was connected to the port the flickering monitor originally occupied. Again, no problems).

Hell, I'll even settle (for the moment) for instructions on how to take the casing off the monitor so I can get in and see if it's simply a lot of dust causing it to overheat. I tried before posting the thread, but even after removing all of the screws, nothing wanted to move.

Good day folks

I have an HP p1130, 21 inch CRT monitor and I'm currently running it off my Toshiba Satellite laptop 5100 with standard drivers for the NVIDIA 64 meg GO graphics card.

What I have noticed that the edges of the screen will shake on occasion. It doesnít happen all the time but it happens enough.

Things you should know.

I run windows XP Pro with all the SP updates

I have only run this monitor on my laptop and not on any other computer, since I have no other computer.

I have tried other after market drivers but it still does the same thing.

I run it at 1600x 1200 at 85 hrtz (this laptop can run at this with no problems)

I have Degaussed it.

The only electronics running next to it are an HP printer and a Braun self cleaning electric shaver, which really isnít running, just sitting there.

Any ideas why it does this?

The machine runs Windows Home Intel(R) Quad(TM) i7 8550U  16GB RAM 526SSDFirst as stated above the screen flickers. However, this is only when I travel to my parents' house and connect to their wifi and sometimes at my school in certain locations.Another issue is when typing my cursor often jumps in the text box so I have to erase and reposition my cursor. This is extremely annoying!Next my event log has a TON of error codes; however, I am not a developer so I have no idea if these errors/warnings are important.

I have a KDS Visual Sensations monitor that until now has worked just fine. Lately, however, the right side of the screen (1 inch of it) shakes occasionally. It kinda shakes and this is a major distraction.

The rest of the monitor screen is just fine. The overall image is very crisp and clear.... but it appears that the right side at the edge is sort of "unstable", for lack of a better word. any ideas as to tghe cause of this problem?

My system is windows 7 64 bit. I use Google as my search engine,

Let's say I do a web search for spaceships. I get the results and want to look at the images so I select images.

I scroll down the page with the images and select an image near the bottom of the page. I get a brief flicker on the screen and I am returned to the top of the image page. I must scroll down to the area where the selected image was in order to view the enlarged selection.

This just began two weeks ago. I've scanned the system for rootkits, malware, and spyware with the Emisoft Emergency Kit scanner, Malware Bytes (free) Panda Cloud Antivirus, gMER, Rkill, TDS Killer,
ADW Cleaner, SuperAntispyware, Herd Protect, Junkware Removal Tool and Free Fixer. Nothing except a few tracking cookies found by SuperAntiSpyWare and some false positives from Panda.

Have there been other reports of this issue? Is there a fix?

I've been wrestling with spyware/malware/virus or something on my laptop over the weekend. It has symatec ani-virus protection but it keeps flashing that the virus protection is off during the 20 minutes that it takes to completely boot up.

Vertical of 60Hz is pretty bad. I can see flicker at that very very obviously. See if you can bump that to at least 72, and hopefully 75+. As far as it being only on 1 side I'm not sure, or why it happens later. But I assure you 60 will flicker to most people, so see if you can bump that up a bit.

My monitor flickers on and off. It happens most often when I turn on my pc. It also does it when I'm surfing the net and reading my mail. It doesn't do it when my kids are playing games. Sometimes...when I first boot up....it will flicker so much that the screen will come back distorted and freeze up. Sometimes it will also put the monitor into sleep mode if it stays off for more than a couple seconds. Then it suddenly flicks back on.
I have replaced the monitor with a spare...and it still did it. So it's not my monitor. I'm thinking it may be my power supply? I'm running Windows XP....and my pc is only 1 year old.
When my computer has been on for awhile....this problem seems to stop. For the last 3 days I haven't turned my pc off....and it hasn't flickered. But I know if I reboot....it will.

Any ideas? Thank you

Hey everybody. Recently, about a month ago my monitor backlight began to flicker and would sometimes just stay dark for a long time. If you shine a light to the screen during one of these "episodes" you can faintly see a display. So I figured at the time that it was a monitor issue and since it was pretty old anyway I bought a new one off Amazon, but now this one is having the same exact problem! The backlight will either flicker continually, go black completely or go black for 2 seconds and come back. Sometimes it won't do this and work properly until I shut the computer off, but the problem will resume when I start it back up.

I've had the same problem with two different monitors and used two different cables. I checked the inside of the computer for loose cables and such. I seriously have no idea what's going on. Right now it's working fine, but this morning was flickering like crazy. Is this a graphics card problem? I do remember when this all started that I accidentally bumped against the tower with my knee, possibly making something loose inside.

It just seems weird to me that a graphics card would have anything to do with a monitor back light.

A:Monitor flickers

If you mean the Power Supply built into the monitor, that could possibly be it. The computer's PSU has nothing to do with the monitor itself. I've had monitors do what you describe and it was the monitor power brick (or internal power) which was usually the culprit. Being brand new, I'd look into an exchange. Before doing that I would hook it up to another computer. If it does the same thing you will be sure it's something to do with the monitor.

Hello everyone, my display has been flickering when there was interference like lorries and so on since the last month. But yesterday, while viewing my ATI(http://www.ati.com) catalyst center, i changed my refresh rate from 75 HZ to 60 Hz as i remarked that my monitor could only support 60Hz. Since that change, my display flickered..... and got garbled. Even restart didn't resolve that issue. And during start up and so on it remained garbled with 2 white lines on the screen. I even reinstalled my graphic card which is Radeon 9250. It got reinstalled leaving the screen garbled. Restoring windows didn't help. The computer was hibernated and resumed to work when i made the reresh rate changes. Reversing the changes didn't work. The problem is most likely with the monitor whose brand is PROLINK. As i plugged the monitor plug into a different socket. Only the monitor was on and it was still garbled. I even removed and replaced my graphics card. I added 256 MB ram like 6 weeks ago. Removing it also didn't isolate the garble. It doesn't go away even in safe mode. Monitors are expensive, i would be glad if this could be solved.

A:PC Monitor Randomly Flickers??

What the ATI site says is basically, they, AMD that made the ATI graphics card, will NOT give support, help, or fix the graphics card when you (the user) are running Windows 7 with the card.
So, apperently, they won't help you when you run their card with Windows 7.
That seems odd.
Now, about the flickering. If it flickers and then reboots, it may either be A.) the monitor B.) the card has problems or C.) the slot where the card connects to the Mother Board is no longer working properly.
Have you tried using or connecting to a different monitor?

I have a three year old XPS One 2720. Two years ago after updating some drivers it started to flicker on and off and I paid a local tech to come and fix it.  he didn't so I signed up for Dell Concierge.  They fixed it.  Then last month my system crashed and then failed a hard drive test. The hard drive is failing so I bought a new one and installed it, no problem.  But bnot the flicker is back.  And no one seems to be able to solve it, including Dell Concierge.  If I put the old drive back in, there is no flicker.   But the new hard drive, the flicker is back.  This makes using the machine a frustrating experience, to say the least. Does any one have ideas on how this can be fixed?

Hi all!

I have no idea what happened, but my external display started flickering. It gets dark for about a second or two and it displays contents for a fraction of a second, going dark again. Also, the display is covered with dancing static-like colourful dots when it stabilises for a few seconds (rare). Sometimes it even enters the power saving mode. The monitor is completely useless. Playing around, I discovered that the effect disappears when I'm using 800x600 or 1024x768 resolution. With such low res, display works fine, but since it's a 1920x1080 screen... it's hardly any point in keeping it on the low.

I have a macbook running win7-64, connection is VGA with minidisplay port adapter. Since low res works, it can't be the cables nor the adapter.

No system restore point. Latest drivers, etc... what might be wrong and how could I fix it?

Edit: Plugging the laptop power cord doesn't help.

I recently clean installed WIN XP on my comp (earlier OS WIN ME). I have Celeron 700 Meg processor and 128 MB SDRAM PC100. Everything seems OK except for the fact that when ever i try to log off or swich between use my monitor flickers and sometimes it restarts....There is no virus on my comp

Any suggestions/Troubleshooting steps???


A:Monitor flickers when i log off or switch users

you need to at least double your ram for xp recommend going to 512m,but don't know if this is the cause of your problem,if you mean the comp. reboots it probably is.
turn off the auto reboot if this is the case and post the blue screen of death error message in full
to turn off
control panel/system/advanced/startup and recovery settings
and untick auto reboot

I have an older monitor and after being on for quite sometime it will either go blank (all blue - no display) or have striations across the screen. I turn it off and immediately on again and it comes back to life. I haven't been able to switch to another computer yet to test as to whether it is the monitor or onboard video. If the onboard video is going out rather than the monitor can one add a video card and run the monitor from it? Thank you in advance.


A:Monitor suddenly goes blank or flickers

Yes. You may have to disable the onboard video.

Hi everyone.

New to posting on these forums.

I'm an IT professional, one of my friends is having an issue that so far I have not been able to solve.

Every time he presses his ctrl key on his keyboard, his monitor will flicker instantaneously with the keystroke. I have had him remove his keyboard, and using the onscreen keyboard, the same exact issue happens.

This makes me think it must be something software related, but I don't know what... if his registry is somehow corrupt, issue with graphics drivers, some sort of software.

Right now I am reinstalling his graphics drivers to see if these resolves anything.

Also, I'll add this is a brand new computer that I had built and shipped to him. He says its happened ever since he's got it, the past few weeks.

Any sorts of ideas would be great. Thank you

A:Monitor flickers when pushing ctrl key

Forgot to add, this only happens when he is in a game application.

I just reinstalled his drivers remotely and it looks like it has resolved the issue.

Hello everyone,

My monitor flickers and shakes so bad that I have to upgrade my already thick glasses if nobody here helps me.

Now heres what I've done:

Changed monitors, changed VGA cards, and no diffirence,
Now I have a good vga card and good monitor, so they are not the problem.

I have removed the NIC card and put it in the last slot as far away from the vga card as possible, still no diffirence.

Than I changed the place of my whole computer and all of a sudden all the flickering stopped and the screen was rock solid, so now I know that its not my computer but the enviroment.

Now my question is, how can I fix this, since I really cant change the place of my computer because I'm inside a real small cubical office.

I have a small wooden desk, my monitor is on top and everything else is inside the wooden desk, which is closed all around accept the front where my feet goes.

The extension cord with four plugs from the computer, printer and some misc... things rests on top of the computer case (but thats not a flicker problem, because I tried moving that to two or three meters away and the flickering was still there)

Right beside my case is a panasonic dot matrix printer KXP1131.

so whats causing this and what can I do, I'm not beside some heavy power source, shall I cut a big hole on the left hand side of my desk for ventilation(40 cm by 40 cm) will that help?

shall I surrond my case with some sort of shelding material?

Shall I put in a voltage stabil... Read more

I've got a Dell Dimension 8200 Desktop I've had for about 4 years, but the monitor seems to flicker now and often goes black and I can't bring it back. Sometimes itll come back if I let it sit for an hour or so.

But, I got a new flat panel monitor - same problem except the monitor goes black without flickering

I also tried installing a new video card (AGP?) and same deal.

Any ideas / hints on how to fix this? Thanks so much guys.

Hi guys,

My computers started doing this odd thing with the monitor, it stops sending data to the monitor at regular intervals of a few seconds, no idea what's going on :P I've replaced the monitor itself, so I know it's not that, and it does the same thing using the onboard graphics and with an AGP graphics card, the monitor works fine on other PC's and I'm pretty sure it's not a software issue, all the correct drivers are installed and I've even rolled back to a three month old system restore...

The PC is an old Fujitsu Siemens Scenic E600 with 1GB RAM (DDR2 I think) and a P4 processor, only things I've added to the PC is extra RAM and graphics/wireless cards. It appears the old monitor was fried by a spate of fuse box trips, so I'm trying to work out if that has killed something in the PC and if so, what exactly is broken...

Any help would be very appreciated :) I'm starting to go a bit mad as i work on my computer :P

I have a Dell E171 FP (flat panel) monitor, which works fine, except when I want to play bridge (multi-player) on Yahoo games. The screen then flickers. I have reset the monitor to factory default, tried to update the driver for the NVIDIA GEforce4 MX420, but to no avail. My screen resolution is [email protected] The maximum supported by the monitor is 75 Hz, but that made no difference.

Following Microsoft instructions for troubleshooting, I went to control panel/display/troubleshooting/hardware acceleration, and by trial and error, succeeded in eliminating the flicker by disabling the Direct X and Direct 3D acceleration. This, however, means that my 3D screen saver is not working. This is not a major problem, but would it disable any other programmes? I have downloaded DirectX 9.0c, but that has not helped either. Many thanks.

I'm using a Dell laptop with an AMD Turion64x2 and an ATI Radeon Xpress graphics card. I've been using a second monitor since I got it, and I haven't had any problems with it until recently. I've had to reinstall Vista thanks to an unsuccessful bout with Linux (will try Linux again later). Now I'm having a problem (and I suspect it's my graphics card, but I could be wrong about that) with my monitors. When I'm at home using my second monitor, it's fine, but when I unplug the monitor the screen flickers and won't stop. I used to have no problem unplugging it without restarting or anything, which is good when I take it to school and put it in hibernate. This isn't the first time I've reinstalled Vista, but it's the first time it's started doing this. I'm kind of worried that this might be a symptom of a deeper problem, too. The ATI page just brings me to the AMD page, and the AMD page doesn't have any updated drivers for it.

Does anybody know how to fix this?

Oh, I forgot to mention, I already tried updating Vista.

Hi guys

Spec - Dell Inspiron 531, AMD 64 Dual processor 5000, 2 gig ram, 32 bit vista home, Nvidia GForce 6150SE nForce 430, IIyama Prolite E380S.

Over the last couple of weeks my monitor has started to flicker for a second or so everytime a program launches. I've checked my drivers etc and they all seem upto date and I've checked all my hardware is ok.

I can live with it but my wife has been nagging me to death about it !

Any ideas??

A:Monitor flickers when programs launch

Contact your dealer or iiyama service center for the backlight replacement when the
screen is dark, flickering or not lighting up.

Back Lighting on LCD screens should not "flicker" Could be a voltage/PSU, GPU, bad monitor issue.

LCD screens have an array of pixels constantly lit by a
backlight. The constancy of the light removes the type of
flicker found in CRT screens (phosphors pulsing with each
refresh cycle). Instead, an LCD pixel has upper and lower
plates with grooves cut perpendicular to each other.
These grooves align the crystals to form channels
for the backlight to pass through to the front of the panel.
The amount of light emitted depends upon the orientation of
the liquid crystals and is proportional to the applied voltage.
