    could a bad video card cause the screen to flicker? -- Looks almost like its "crawling" or moving.

    its a pretty new Viewsonic 19inch LCD monitor - maybe a year old at the outside.

    Im hoping its a video card although so many other things have been wrong with this machine that nothing would surprise me at this point.

    Hey,

    This sounds like a more-likely driver issue as opposed to a broken GPU. You should boot using Safe Mode to see if the issue is driver related, if it is and you boot in Safe Mode then the flickering should cease - if it continues, it's a likely monitor or GPU issue.

    Nick.
