anyone ever encounter this monitor prob?
Hey everyone -
I've been sniffing around the net for an answer to this, but I haven't come up with anything. I'm hoping maybe someone here has had a similar issue.
I got my hands on a 17" LCD monitor from Taiwan (hey, it was free). It was hooked up to my laptop dock and worked great for maybe 6-8 weeks. Then one day, I started getting flickering pixels all over the screen, particularly in areas where the displayed image is darker (black/dark blue, shadows, etc). It's really bizarre - I've never seen anything like it. Imagine little RGB Christmas lights flashing.
I figured maybe it's an issue with my laptop/dock, but I recently bought a desktop, and it's doing the same thing. Adjusting the contrast and brightness way up cures some of the problem, but it continues to show up.
Now considering I now have an nvidia gfx 5200, I should probably get a monitor that will do it some justice. But I'd hate to get rid of this display if there's a fix for the problem.
Anyone have any idea what's going on here?
