Is my monitor dying? (video)

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi I have an Eizo Foris 2332 screen, about a year old (the warranty on it is 5 years) and a few days ago it started to flicker every morning upon startup and then slowly gets better and better over the next 15-20 minutes. After that it works completely normal. The flicker is mostly on the right side as you'll see in the video (but today it was basically all over the screen at first). The funny thing is that it started the day after I installed the newest drivers for my Zotac 560 Ti 448 card. However I don't think it's graphics related as it happens during startup (that little "DVI" overlay also flickers) and it flickered even when I uninstalled the drivers and cleaned with driver sweeper. Here's the video:

Since the OSD is also flickering, This sounds much more likely to be a monitor issue, though it might be worth checking the gpu just in case. Try your computer with a different monitor (or a tv) and see if it still flickers, or try the monitor with another computer, it doesn't really matter which. If you can use another cable, that will help rule that out too.

If the monitor is at fault, then contact the place you bought it from and try to return it. Given how you say it does it more in the mornings, it sounds like a bad solder connection somewhere on the board, since these can be affected by their temperature. If this is the case It's best to either get a replacement or send it in for repair.
