Hey.

Have you tried installing the latest graphics card driver? for your card.

Also, When you changed the monitor, Did you also change both the power cable and vga\dvi cable?.

I did not change the cables, and there are no updates for my video card. But it does not flash all the time and its not flashing right now.

Let me re-cap.

So, we've tried 2 monitors, And both flash, and have lines down them, You used the same cables both times. And the Graphics card driver is set to the latest one.

Id suggest, We make sure the PCI /PCI.E graphics card is seated correctly in the slot on the motherboard.

Uninstall and reinstall Graphics Card driver.

Try new Cable on the monitor.

Do all the suggestions mentioned.

After getting the latest drivers, completely uninstall your drivers then reinstall with the ones you downloaded.

You must have an APU, never dealt with one.
