So...I swapped cables and it was fine for the same 3 seconds then began to flicker. I swapped cables back and it flickered and is now... fine. I have no idea what happened haha

mmm sounds like your monitor hardware is failing

start saving for a new one perhaps

Hi all,

 

I have a 2 monitor set up. Absolutely nothing fancy what so ever. One of the monitors is a Dell S2309W which I have had for years. The other is a BENQ GL2460 which I have also had for years... just less than the Dell haha. This morning when I turned my pc on for some reason only the Benq monitor is flickering. When I turn it off and on it is fine but after 3 seconds it begins to flicker slowly at first until it becomes very fast. I've checked cable connections etc. If anyone could offer any help I'd be very grateful! 

 

Edit: My graphics card is a GTX 960. And there is nothing different about the setup etc from the previous night when everything was working fine (no additional interference)

 

Thanks

have you changed any parts?

What hardware are you running?

it could be that it's dying

 

try using another input like HDMI or something else than the one that is used

My PCs: Desky | Beddie | Miney | Benchie

Things I need help with: (nothing at the moment)

Spoiler

none atm

I hate Intel's pricing, Ryzen's weird quirks, Nvidia's pricing, and Radeon GPUs in general

Spoiler

Products I like:

Spoiler

Sony Xperia Z1 / Z2 / 10 ii, Asus Strix 970 / 1070, Samsung SSD, WD HDD, Corsair PSUs (AX, RM, CX(grey)), GeForce GPU, NZXT N450/S340, be quiet! Coolers, G.Skill Trident RAM, Logitech M525, Logitech G440, Razer Deathadder Elite

Products I hate:

Spoiler

Xperia Z3, XiaoMi 5c, Radeon GPUs, Razer Audio Products, any bloatwares

Companies I absolutely adore: (and hope it stays that way)

Spoiler

be quiet! - sent me AM4 mounting for my DRP3 even though it's way past the timeframe stated, no questions asked

Corsair - very good RMA experience, absolutely recommend

Companies I hate:

Spoiler

Nvidia, Intel, Apple, TMT (Thundermatch, a retailer)

Personal Blacklisted Companies:

Spoiler

Acer: shit tier quality products, shit tier customer service thus far, they "tried" to solve my issue but they arent really doing anything but delaying and delaying. (on-going case since July)

Gigabyte: horrible customer service (gigabyte had literally 0 customer service, asked me to go to retailer with NO WAY to email them about a question) but at least they fixed my shit in ONE MONTH (would probably take me 1 hour to fix if they let me email them)

XiaoMi Phones: built like a tank but the software is buggy as all hell

Seagate HDD: had too many dead seagate drives

Kingston SSD: 300V controller swap thingy

Razer (except their mouse)

Remember, just because I had good/bad experiences with these companies/product, doesn't mean you will have similar experiences too. I would still recommend these products if they made sense for your needs, but I'll add a disclaimer of my experience if it's relevant. Feel free to DM me asking why they are where they are.

I updated my motherboard and cpu with a fresh windows install maybe a month ago and had no issues. 

CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 3600

Mobo: MSI B450 Mortar

Flickering as in losing signal for a moment and regaining can have many reasons: bad cable, bad connector, dying port on the GPU, dying port on the monitor, driver incompatibilities, unsupported mode, etc. Potentially even different cable runs parallel to the video cable might be a reason. Flickering as in backlight flickering or actually turning on/off/on is potentially a hardware fault of the monitor.

If thats the case, any recommendations for around £150 ~ $200?

im not too familiar with recent monitors to give a recommendation

 

perhaps you can make a new post in Display's subforum to ask for recommendations
