Ok, I'm having this problem with an old crt monitor. I know the monitor works, so that's not the problem. It's an old NEC Multisync FE1250 and when I plug it into the VGA port on the side of my computer, all the screen does is flicker. I searched around on google and every thing I found said change the refresh rate. I tried every rate there was 59, 60, 70, 73, 75, and 80, but none of them got rid of the flickering. The flickering is so bad that you can't see anything going on. I've also had this problem with a LED tv that my aunt had.

Hi GriffyGryphon, and welcome to TSG.

You may be trying to operate the monitor at the correct frame refresh rate, but wrong resolution. See if your computer supports any of the following video formats for an externally connected monitor:

Factory Preset Resolution Modes
640 x 480 / 160 Hz,
800 x 600 / 160 Hz,
832 x 624 / 160 Hz,
1024 x 768 / 136 Hz,
1152 x 870 / 120 Hz,
1280 x 1024 / 102 Hz,
1600 x 1200 / 88 Hz,
1792 x 1344 / 78 Hz,
1800 x 1440 / 73 Hz,
1856 x 1392 / 75 Hz,
1920 x 1440 / 73 Hz

Sadly no, the resolutions that are on that list don't have refresh rates that high, and the refresh rates on that list that show on my computer don't have the corresponding resolutions. >.<
