Lately, my screen has been getting certain episodes of brief flickering at the edges and one in particular manifested a thin orange fuzzy line at the left-most edge of the screen. This happened when I:
1. Opened a program.. I think it was internet explorer
2. happened once when I was playing a computer game (but instead of a flicker, the screen was resizing for a bit -- not drastic but more like it went from it's usual 1024x768 to 1020x768 (estimated, just to show that it's a little change only) and back to 1024x768. happened instantaneously but I noticed it
3. when i turn on the computer after a long time it has been turned off.
I'm ruling out power (connected to an AVR and the psu is 650w .. and i've had them for a year and a half with no problems) and magnetic fields (only books are in the proximity).
I'd like to hear your suggestions coz I'm in a dorm with no other computer shop nearby or spare monitor or video card to test which one is problematic. thanks!
