    Hi all,

    Recently i've started to experience my iMac screen flickering for approx 2 seconds, and then turning back on. I was wandering if this was a common problem with this model of iMac (purchased mid-09, 2.66ghz 4gb ram model). I had read of such a problem with the new 27", and in some cases even with the 21.5".

    I have only recently begun to use the iMac for relatively graphically-intense tasks, and was wandering if perhaps it could be a dying graphics card (or perhaps it was always faulty, but the lack of intensity of any programs run never pulled it up originally?), or if maybe it was an issue with the LCD?

    I have already restored the OS (10.6.4), any suggestions?

    Thanks in advance

    Had mine since April and it did it twice tonight. First time it's happened ever. Going to keep an eye on it, if it happens again, I'll put in a call. Thought I had a good one.
