    I have been looking into this for days reading various forums online.

    I have been using my laptop which is connected to an external monitor for months with no problems, then one day the external screen started blinking on and off occasionally (only for a second). If i use the laptop screen everything works fine, but when i try to use an external monitor the blinking problem happens, (i have tried 2 separate monitors). It seems to blink at random times, like everytime i change songs on my zune program, or if i skip through videos streaming from the internet.

    I am running windows vista home premium 64 bit, on an hp pavilion dv 2700 notebook with a geforce 7150m / nforce 630m.

    any help would be greatly appreciated

    Model of monitor? Could something completely unrelated to your laptop...

    it is currently doing it on a brand new lg 26' monitor, and before it was doing it on a dell from around 2004. the only thing i haven't tried that i have read in a different forum is getting a new cable, im using a vga cable, and one forum said something about getting a shielded vga cable or something.
