Maybe the refresh rate is too low.

Right click on the desktop and click advanced to open the Display Properties dialog.

Go to the Settings tab and click advanced.

A new dialog should appear with a title something like [Your monitor name] settings. Well navigate to the monitor tab and change the refresh rate.

BE WARNED: You probably want to hide rates that your monitor cannot display. And even so don't just go for the highest you see.

I would reccomend 70 Hertz as most monitors are compatible with this setting and there is little or no noticeable flickering.

If this doesn't fix it then post back again and I (or anyone else) will see what they can do.

Right it should be set if its a newer one at 1280x1024 resolution with a refresh rate of 70Hz, now when you go onto display in the bit where you change the res and such the name of the monitor should appear with the gfx card name like (monitor name) on (gfx card), if it says defualt monitor you havent loaded the drivers for your monitor which should have came with the monitor if not its a manufacturers website job to get them. If its got the drivers on check the gfxcard try another monitor and get the latest drivers for the card.

Yeah the card will output that or the nearest thing to that res anyway. How old is the monitor and have there been any changes to the system lately.
