I've had this monitor for a week now and it flickers and has vertical stripes is about the best way I can explain it (kind of scary when it happens)... I never had this problem with a 19 inch Acer I was using before or any lcd monitors that my wife or sons are/were using.

The problem is when I power it up... it goes nuts every once in a while for about an hour or so then seems to stabilize and stay calm after that.

Should I contact the vendor to see how they can help me or should I get in touch directly with Asus to work things out?

Thanks.

yeah, I'd contact Asus. If you have a digital camera, snap some shots of it in action.

I'll try but it's unpredictable at best... it's been stable for the last hour or so... Fecal Matter! :angry:

It almost sounds like an overheating or CFL issue with it. Definitely contact ASUS and let them know about it, you should be covered under warranty for that. It may be a simple fix you can do yourself, but without fully knowing what is causing it, its just easier to contact them and see what they say.

I know way more about cooling than these damned monitors.

I'll get in touch with Asus tomorrow.

Thanks.

:withstupid: I remember my friends Acer was overheating and it would have these issues. Then after awhile it died entirely.
