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: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lo5m-kxOkaM
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.
Re: New monitor: text flickers when I scroll down/up
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...
