    Hi, I have a Compaq MV920 19" monitor and have had it for about a year and a half. Its suppost to be a really good monitor as it even costs between $350 - 500 depending on where you buy it. It only came with a 1 year warranty. I am having this problem.. over the last few months now about 1 time a day the screen will kind of flicker.. like it will just go black for like 1 second then just comes back .. and it doesnt like get all discolored or anything it seems like it just refreshes for a second or something. The color and brightness and quality are all still excelent.. and its not that big of a deal but it is very annoying. It's running at 1152X864 @ 85hz. I have tried it with two different video cards my old GeForce2 GTS and my new GeForce4 TI 4400 and they both do the same thing.. could it be something with the Nvidia drivers? I have also tried using some drivers from compaq instead of the plug and play ones that come with windows xp but that didnt help any either. Ok well.. i hope this thing isnt going bad on me. thanks

    I've personally seen monitors do that when they are having a heat problem. Feel the monitor and see if it feels hot near the vents to you, make sure you wipe of any dust and anything blocking airflow.
