    Lately I have been having a problem with my display.
    Everytime I input anything into the computer, wether it be clicking on something or typing something, it causes my monitor to flicker or turn off then turn back on.
    As well when i look at video or if there is an animated advertizement on a webite it either turns my monitor off or it goes all glitchy and fuzzy.
    either way i can barely use my computer because it keeps going black or its too wiggly to see what is on the screen. I have looked everywhere on the net for this symptom but havent found anything. Has anyone ever heard of this or seen this before and know either what the problem is and or how to fix it?

    If you need clarification of the symptoms or need me to explain further I will
    Thanks

    I should also note that it is not a problem with the monitor, at least i dont think, because i have switched monitors and it produces the exact same problem

    The problem may relate to your video card or video adapter, since it does it on more than one monitor.

    Could you perhaps give some indication of the computer hardware (make and model) or the video card in use?

    This has been a problem for about a week now, and this computer is well over a year old (in essence its a problem i've never had before)

    It would be worth trying to reload the video drivers, but without knowledge of what the hardware actually is, we can't advise.

    Download and run Belarc, it should give you a list of what you have.
