Occasionally, I'm using my pc and the screen sort of flicks on/off. Very brief, and it's not a general power thing on my house, but looks the same.

Seein' as how the monitor is old with no probs and the pc is new (2nd hand) I'm guessing graphics card related. Or mobo i suppose. That's what I'd like to know - could be caused by any number of things but I'd like experienced types to mebbe give me some opinions.

What is causing this? does it mean something serious, or can I just live with it?

Frequency..umm say 3 times a day when using for mebbe 3 hrs total over the whole day. Sorry, it's very infrequent & I can't see a pattern. Not Often is the short answer, but daily. When it happens it does repeat within say 1/2 hr usually, but then sometimes nothing for 1-2 hrs of use.

Hardware..asus k8n motherboard, nvidia 6600 graphics, philips CRT monitor
