    I have a 19" Acer LCD monitor. Normally the monitor works great, but when I play some kids games the screen will flash black and it looks like there is static on the screen. I tried to change the resolution but it kept doing it. Any ideas of what would cause this. The monitor has no other problems when I am not playing the games, so I don't think it is the monitor.

    Thanks

    One possibility is the cable. I remember looking at Acer LCD's in Newegg and seeing a lot of people having problems like that, and many of them solved it by using a different video cable.

    oh, I will try that. I am using the DVI cable not the normal VGA cable. I will try to switch to the other cable and see if that makes a difference.


    Thanks
