Monitor flickering...

Postby Declan_Vee » Thu Jul 11, 2002 3:37 pm

I have two monitors set up at my desk... a 17" and a 15", which both run at 1024x768, the 17" is at 85 Hz and I have no idea what the 15" runs at.

The problem is that on the 17" I get this "filckering" going on on the right hand side (the side my 15" is on). It flickers on about 1/3 of the screen. It's still workable but it does become quite annoying. No real picture distortion, just darker waveyness.

Of course turning the other monitor off fixes the problem, but it doesn't help all that much...

How old is the 15" monitor?

The 15" monitor is emitting some type of frequency(ies) or magnetic distortion that your 17" monitor doesn't like.

Prolonged exposure could potentially do permanent damage to your 17" monitor, but might not necessarily.

I had the exact same problem, just try moving the the monitors farther apart...It worked for me.

Yeah, what Varney said.

You could also try manually degaussing both monitors, or get some type of RF cover or something for your 15" monitor.

you could just drop kick both monitors and get some TFT's then you won't have that problem and can put them end to end.
