Hello to everyone,

my monitor keeps on flickering. i mean there is no particular time ionterval between each time it flickers.

The screen actually switches off, and then sort of refreshes.

Sometimes i am bound to think that the system has restarted.

Besides that while I am playing games , it happens . I thought that it was my AGP, but i checked the mointor with the onboard built in AGP. But it still is refreshing.

If there would be something wrong with the power, i think the monitor's power light should also have been switched off, at the time the mointor flickers

does anyone have any suggesstions?
