Monitor flickering, possibly dying?
In the past day or so, I've started noticing the screen on my monitor flickering intermittently. I haven't done anything different software-wise or driver-wise, so I suspect it's the hardware. The video card is an XFX Radeon HD 5770, and the processor is an AMD Athalon II X3, both of which are a year old. The monitor, on the other hand, is an Acer LCD AL1916Wb, which I understand to be at least five years old. I'm pretty sure this is the culprit!
What I'm asking:
1) What is the likelyhood that something else is at fault?
2) If my monitor is failing, how long would I likely have before the whole thing goes down?
3) Is there a way to mitigate this? I mean, I don't know how strenuous Fallout New Vegas is on hardware but I'll stop if it helps
4) How terribly expensive is a replacement monitor going to be?
any assistance in this manner would be terribly appreciated
