seriously though, the room light bulbs i would describe as 'soft pearl' or something and hidden away behind semi-opaque lamp shades so i don't think the bulbs are going to be upsetting the pc screen ... plus the fact the plasma tv is in the same area and that is quite steady viewing.

I still think your friend should have the earthing system in his house checked. Has he got an RCD system (If you are not elec. techie an RCD is the fuse box that has switches that flick up (for off) when then is a short anywhere on the circuit!
Re your post #32 above. It really doesn't matter what color the bulbs are or that they are behing a shade, you can have a fluorescent tube in the next room with an iffy starter and that can cause problems. It's the elec supply not the line of sight of the objects that matters.

windows 7 ultimate x 64

if your problem is with power fluctuations you can buy powerline conditioners but these can be quite expensive.
surge protecters will only protect against spikes and surges,you problem is more persistent so an unlikely to resolve the issue.

out of interest what wattage is the PSU in your PC's if your supply is "dirty" then a good quality PSU which clearly exceeds your minimum requirments may help to balance the supply.

if the problem is due to fluctuations in the supply have you ever turned off every feasible socket lets say on the ground floor (assuming this is where your PC is ) and only having the PC on ?
then one by one turn each item on connected to that ring main to se if the problem occurs at a specific point?

i cannot see anything in your house affecting the monitor but not affecting your TV etc.
In fact plug the PC into your widescreen TV this will tell you whether its the PC or the monitor being affected.

Windows screen flashes, random grey screen & random black screen
This is driving me crazy. Right after I boot my laptop, the screen flashes randomly. Also something is stealing focus from what I am working on to something else. Then it likes to suddenly go to a grey screen. I have to manually reboot. If that is not enough, it like to just reboot.
