Flicker Screen Compaq NX7400

by oldfieldshotel / August 28, 2009 1:03 AM PDT

Got a problem with my screen. It flickers randomly (a lot). But it works OK in Safe Mode. The PC had not been used for a month and that's when it started. The screen recovery is set at 60hz and it is not a loose connection (I guess) Have run all sort of Antivirus, Malwarebytes, Registery Booster,and didn't find anything.
Anybody out there with an idea?

What happens if we restore the OS? The alternatives are rather grim. And we all know about today's malwares and more so while you didn't touch the OS, Microsoft and other pests do.
