I Reciently did a pretty major system upgrade which included my RAM, Video card, sound card, power supply and case...
I've had a few problems along the way, but this one i can not solve...
Shortly after getting everything installed I noticed the screen every now and then flickered, usually 3-5 horizontal lines that slightly distort my image, lasting anywhere from 3 seconds up to 30 seconds... extremely annoying.
I've come to the conclusion that it is not being caused by my monitor... I might be wrong but, my monitor breaking down RIGHT after a system upgrade just doesnt seem like a likely coincidence...
but I still dont know how I would fix this if it were a Video card issue... I've tried several drivers, and everything on my system is up to date.
The flickering seems to be completely random... my video card runs 40C idle and 44C while gaming. I've also tried different refresh rates and different resolutions, no dice.
Here is my system specs
Viewsonic Ultrabrite A70F+ 17" CRT 1280x800 (60hz)
nVidia GeForce 6200 256MB AGP GPU(latest drivers)
ASUS P4S800 mobo(latest BIOS)
Pentium 4 2.4ghz
1024MB Geil DDR400 RAM
80GB Western digital HDD
Windows XP home(SP2)
Thanks, and all comments are appreciated!
