Error Messages:


Hi Guys,
I gave my daughter a monitor that worked perfectly for me, but with her PC, the picture rapidly twitches in and out all the time i.e. width & height both decrease slightly several times a second.
For a short time the OS was changed from XP to Win98, and the picture was rock steady, but when changed back to XP the twitch came back as well!
I'm not inclined to suspect the monitor, maybe it's a case of finding the right driver(s)?, but I'd appreciate any helpful suggestions before I start meddling with it.
Cheers, w00dy

Depending on what resolution you are trying to use, the G50 has a Maximum of Up to 1024x768 @ 72 Hz.
Yes, it may be just drivers. Considering that WinXP uses 60Hz as its "good for all" standard refresh rate, you may want to force the refresh rate up, just not over the 72Hz.

For Flicker free use 800x600 @ 85 Hz
