Monitor flickering and random pixels.


Mar 29, 2015
Lately my monitor will randomly (like once a week or so) flicker black on all or partial horizontal wide lines across the screen. Having Windows 8.1, it will also be inclined to go all black occasionally when I enter the start/apps screen. Also, occasional red/orange pixels will show up and flicker slightly, but are not stuck on the screen but rather whatever particular image happens to be on the screen (for instance, if you scroll down, the pixels will only stay with that image; not fixed in one place on the screen).

I have tried updating my graphics drivers, changing the AVI cords, and switching monitors, and it still will happen occasionally. Any idea what the cause is?

I have a fairly standard modern gaming computer and a Samsung monitor.
