Poor display on your monitor can be the result of a driver problem or incorrect resolution settings. If the display problem still persists after adjusting the resolution, your next step should be to adjust the refresh rate. Lower refresh rates tend to cause flickering so it is important to verify this setting.

You can adjust the refresh rate using the Settings tab from the Display Properties dialog box. Once again, select the Settings tab and click the Advanced button. Select the Monitor tab. Use the drop down arrow to adjust the refresh rate to about 70 MHZ. Remember that a higher refresh rate will reduce the amount of flickering. As with the screen resolution, if you are unable to select the desired refresh rate, go back to the video driver to make sure the latest one is installed.
