Welcome to Seven Forums.
I would try going to the Samsung site Samsung Searching for the LCD (If that is what you have). And download the driver to my desktop, it should be a .inf file

To find out what your device manager is reporting ad your monitor, go to control panel.device manager and expand your monitor heading. Most likely it will show PnP which is why you need to get the driver from Samsung.

Once you have the driver, go back to device manager>monitor>update driver software>browse my computer> have disk> browse to where the .inf file is on your desktop>click or double click the .inf file to install it.

Please also take the time to fill in your full system specs here

Monitor blinks randomly - I don't game
Don't know if it is a monitor issue or video card. Sometimes it seems like I can associate it with what I am doing (when watching video or sometimes I will have Adobe apps or Bejeweled up) but then it happens when there is no apparent stress on the card at all. Doesn't matter if the monitor has...
