Screen blinking hard

Hi everyone, since a couple of days I am facing an issue that I never saw before, my screen is blinking whatever I am currently doing it's blinking and I don't know what is the cause. to explain furthermore my issue, the screen brightness goes to normal and darker every 0.1 sec and it's annoying because it's causing me a massive headache. Does anyone know where it can come from? my first guess is from the monitor itself because for some reasons I can't keep a monitor alive for 2 years streak but I wanna be sure that the issue comes from the monitor because yeah I don't want to throw money on something that will not fix my issue.

Have a nice day,

borrow a monitor,see if that does it too.

It's the only way you can be sure.

Hi, thanks for your answer

Well, the issue is that I don't have a second monitor to try that out, but I got a question, If I record my screen, do the issue should also show up on the video if it's related to the GPU or any component of my computer?

You have no flat screen TV?

If so, can use that to test with it. If you make a screen capture, I'm not sure if it will show the problem, but if it does, will tell us nothing. However if it fails to show the problem, then it means the capture is of the info sent to the monitor, and that means the monitor is the problem.

I recorded my screen while the issue occurs and nothing on the screen so yeah, definitively a monitor issue, thanks for the help!
