    New monitor: text flickers when I scroll down/up

    Hello Ubuntu Community

    After many years I've finally switched from CRT to LED LCD monitor.

    When I scroll down/up slowly through text in Firefox(smooth scrolling is enabled) or OpenOffice Writer, lines of text flicker or looks blurry. Like in this video from 0:30-0:50:

    Text in my old CRT monitor didn't flicker when I scrolled down/up.
    Please tell me is this normal or not for LCD LED monitor?

    I haven't reinstall graphics card driver. Would removing and reinstalling graphics driver (in Hardware Drivers) stop text from flickering??

    Thank you for your help and kind regards.

    Someone who likely knows more than me could weigh on this one as well, but I have experienced something like what you're experiencing in the past in this and other OSs and 90% of the time it has had to do with video drivers.

    As it is a reasonably simple fix I would say try un-and-re-installing the video drivers. That is at least the first thing I would try.

    Edit: I would add as well, aside from video drivers--see if there are any monitor drivers you can get. Not sure how compatibility will work in this situation...
