Just having some issues with my computer's display, it keeps getting a sort of 'interference' looking flickering on it, black interference. This problem started today but has happened a good 5 or 6 times in a short space of time. I googled it and someone said something about the monitor being knackered but that doesn't seem right. Any ideas what it could be? Possible it's a virus?

Computer is a HP G56 notebook.

Go here to check for new drivers: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?cc=us&dlc=en&lc=en&product=4326707&

You could also try recording with camstudio for a short while until it happens again. If the flickering doesn't appear in the video then it's a problem with the screen itself.

I play an MMORPG, could it be that that is causing the interference? I will check drivers also.

Is this a new problem? Did you recently begin playing that game?

I'm not a gamer, but I do use a lot of heavy duty design software that , like games,is very taxing on the graphics. What usually happens is not flickering or strange looking display. The images move VERY, VERY and I do indeed mean VERY slowly when I move around in model space. It will usually lock up. About 10 minutes later, I come back the image has finally moved around to the side I'm trying to look at.

From my experience and what you're describing, your problem doesn't sound like it has anything to do with the game you're playing.

Do you have another computer you can plug your monitor into? This will help figure out if the problem is something with the monitor, or the pc.

It could be your video card.
