    Hi all..

    My macbook is about 8months old and the monitor seems to be slightly flickering. Its really subtle but I have only noticed it in the last few weeks. It does not seem to happen all the time but I really notice it when I am on a page like this one that has a white background page colour. Is this a small issue thats gonna get worse or am I just being paranoid? Any advice would be great, thanks in advance!!

    I'm not sure on LCD screens, but it happened to me on my CFT monitor and it just kept getting worse and worse. It can also damage your eyes, as it causes them to strain, so I'd get this sorted soon!

    I notice an almost indiscernible flickering when viewing websites with flash banners. It's annoying, especially because I hate flash banners enough as it is, but it doesn't bother me much, and it doesn't seem to be getting worse. Maybe it's an illusion, but I think it got slightly better since I upgraded to 10.5.7.
