Hi guys,

My monitor flickers on and off and after that the diplay becomes distorted. Do I need to change my graphics card? I have an ASUS NVDIDIA v9520 if I'm not mistaken.

Thanks in advance!!!

is this the same monitor you have been using for a while? and/or, is the video card new?
if either has changed, its probably a settings issue. by distorted, do you mean its blurry, or its kinda sideways, with multiple images of the same screen?

The monitor is at lease 1 yr and half and the graphics card is almost a year already. Well it becomes pixelated and distorted. Looks like it uses less than 16bit color. Oh and before it does this it goes on and off first like the monitor is not getting any signal from the graphics card at all.

It also says that the nvidia drivers are not working. I have updated the drivers and still does not work.

Try reseating the card and uninstalling the drivers and reinstall the original ones that came with the card.

The reason the screen looks like that is because the drivers are not working so the next thing would be to try another card this one maybe bad.

I finished doing what you've said and I'm just going to monitor it for now. I also did not attach the side panel to make the system run cooler coz I'm thinking it might be overheating as well.

I'll update if anything happens

were you able to determine if the card was overheating or did reseating and reinstall of the drivers work?
