Can insufficient power cause monitor flicker?
i have recently bought an Acer L100 small form factor PC. unfortunately i am getting monitor flicker. it is an issue with the PC as i have tried two different monitors (17 & 19" TFT) which are otherwise fine.
the flicker is barely noticeable when idling but gets much worse with CPU and particularly HDD activity.
the unit comes with a 90W external PSU, for the following spec:
AMD 64 X2 3800+, 1GB, 160GB HDD. integrated nV 6150 graphics.
only thing i can think of is that perhaps the power draw is too high with HDD seek / CPU activity - could this cause the flicker?
its a very compact unit so i thought there may be internal interference but have eliminated that. I've also eliminated external issues eg nearby speakers.
thanks for any help you can give...
