    Hi all
    Ive got an assembled pc running windows xp. Its screen flickers (horizontal lines keep on dancing) constantly when i start my pc till i shut it down despite any application. I changed monitors, tried refresh rate, but no luck. Is it a problem with my motherbord. Is there any other option than replacing it.
    Plz reply.:eek:

    Getting a non-integrated graphics card is an option.. Checking that it is really the onboard video(as I understood) would be necessary...

    Yeah, it will IF the onboard graphics is the problem. If you or any of your friends have an old spare graphics card, you should test your comp with that installed.
