a friend has a blocky/flickering monitor, and he says this only happens when he runs his dvd drive. the drive was also very noisy and wasnt writing. so he has just replaced it. it writes ok now, but the flickering is still there. is something conflicting or is the monitor on the way out?
any help welcome

Have you checked the refresh rate of your friends monitor? What does 'blocky' mean exactly.

says solid colour blocks appear at random places on the screen, flashing on and off. . .
pc is fine until running the dvd drive.
