Not sure exactly when this started, but lately my monitor will flash on and off...It does this a lot when I try to turn on the computer, but also does it after using it for a while it will start to flash on and off. I can get it to temporarily stop by turning off the monitor, and if that doesn't work I can pull the plug and put it back in and that will stop it for a while. Does anyone know of a more permanent solution? I want to try all that I can before I have to go out and buy a new monitor. Any help is appreciated!!

This sort of reminds me of a problem on a machine I use at school. Is the flashing completely random? Or does it seem to happen around a specific amount of time its been on? Be sure to scan your computer for viruses, just in case.

Hi!
How old is the monitor? Is it a CRT?

Flashing usually happens the most on startup and when the screen saver comes on or when the computer hibernates. Sometimes I can spend a couple minutes trying to get it to work, but to no avail...No viruses...monitor is about 2 years old should not be having such problems...not a crt it is an FP 5315

Turn the screen saver off - there's no need for that these days (it doesn't save power).

My System

Is your monitor connected directly to your power supply or on its own power cord?sometimes when power supplies have the monitor power out its not enough to power a monitor over 15", also try checking the connections and inspect the wire for any sort of ware.hope this helps.
