    Hi,
    I recently bought a new pc Acer Windows 7 Home premium 64 bit, AMD Athlon 2X4, 4GB DDR2, 1TB, 9200Nvidia Intergrated and i have a new monitor which is an Acer S243HL.

    When i run a game whether its a game i installed or a game built in like chess the screen keeps flickering, I took one pc back and changed it but still having the same problem. When i connect the monitor to another pc it works fine so i know its not the monitor. I have the recommended display on which is 1920 X 1080. I have tried everything i can think off but still wont work can someone help me please


    Thanks

    Try Checking you power settings. They may be set to automatically set to shutting off monitor every few minutes.
    if that isn't the problem, there may be a problem with your monitor.
