I'm gonna explain this the best I can so here goes,

Basically my monitor flashes grey (and a few reds, whites and other colors) every 4 seconds or so. The flash is up for millseconds. The monitors 1 year old and it's a iiyama Prolite E1900S (good piece of kit tbh)

What I've done:


Changed monitor cable - Nothing wrong with that.

System restores - didnt work
Cleaned inside PC
Rebooted PC several times
Changed resolutions
Sweated buckets
Sweared alot

Can someone please help me?

When you bump you question many of the techs here think you have someone who is answering you. It is not wise to do so.

On your question, you have not stated any spec's on your computer. So your best bet is just to replace the whole Computer.

JUST KIDDING, but you can see why people really don't want to answer this kind of question.

Your problem is either a monitor thats going bad, or a video card going bad. It could possibly be the drivers but it is not likely. Try borrowing a monitor from anywhere you can and run if for a day to see if the same problem starts happening. If not it's the monitor.

If you have on-board video a Video card may cure the problem. Even if you have a video card in the computer trying another video card may let you see if the old card is the problem. Make sure you remove old video drivers if you start switching video cards around. You May complicate things by not doing so.
