I have this problem when my computer goes on stand by that the screen starts shimmering and when I restart it, It is still happening after start up but goes away when I reboot again. Im confident that its got something to do with sleep mode but it happens even after disabling stand by...any ideas would be greatly appreciated

Have you tried checking the cables are firmly connected?

Using the 'degauss' on your monitor (through menu buttons on the monitor itself)?

Are there any magnetic interferences - speakers, cellphone, magnets etc near the monitor? If so - try moving them.

turned my p.c on yesterday and what do I know but the bloody thing is shimmering again so I have reset the refresh rate back to 75 Hz and will just have to reboot every time it happens now
