Default Monitors and headaches!!

I was just thinking normally the common cause for a headache is the fact a moniter flickers really fast although its too fast for the human eye to see, this is the cause for getting a headache.

But with LCD flat screen they dont have any refresh rate(flicker) what so ever, so does that mean its impossible to get a headache from one?

LCD's and the likes do not have a refresh rate as such, so you will not be able to see any flicker (with one of those high speed camera's.)

erm, well I don't have a problem with CRT's (I have 2 22"ers) So I can't really say from my own experience, but other people say that LCD's don't give them headaches.

Change the frequency if that setting hurts you.
