Thats the first thing I'll say as three monitors later, you're now likely driving the local RMA Department up the wall. Call this a friendly service call for my fellow techs :)
I want you to go through this checklist of items and tell me if any of them apply to the surrounding environment around the Monitor area that may cause the flickering:
(1) Is there a Television, or another monitor nearby set to a different refresh rate?
(2) Is there any sort of Stereo speaker, headphone, or PA System above, below, or within five feet of the computer system?
(3) Is there any Circuit Breakers, Electronics dwellings or Laser Printers near your desk and/or monitor?
(4) Do you use long Flourescent Tube Lighting around your desk (As the lights and the fixtures themselves will exagerate refresh inertia in the 60hz-85hz range)
(5) Do you wear glasses and keep the room properly lit? (This is more because with some lenses made of polykarbon again it can exagerate refresh inertia in low light situations)
(6)Where in conjunction to your Monitor is your COMPUTER CASE located?
(7) Where in conjunction to your Monitor is your COMPUTER SPEAKERS Located?
(8) Is there any other office equipment, including Xerox Copiers, intercoms, or Central Air systems that may be near your desk or hidden within the room (EG, tucked behind a wall).
If you can answer these questions for me in as much detail as possible, we should be able to better help you.
