Vaio All in One VGC-LV140J monitor flicker problem-Please Help!

\015 Dear whomever,\015\012\015\012I had just recently purchased a sony vaio all in one desktop VGC-LV140J and noticed flickering from the start. I didnt really mind it at first, but now its gotten to the point where theres 2-3 flickers a minute. Most of the time, it occurs when I have a program running, but even in cases where there is nothing opened, the flicker will still occur. I have tried everything from reading forums to calling sony. Sony has told me to dl the bios utility update, but it didn't work (in fact i think it made it worst)I have also read that if you turn TMM (Transient multi montior) it will fix the problem, but that has failed as well..Please let me know what I should do in order to fix this problem..Thanks in advance!! \015\012\015\012also, could it be that defragging my computer every day is causing this problem? I dont know, im lost here and trying to think of any reasons now..i just want it fixedd! \015\012\015\[email protected] (here is my e-mail address just in case)\015

Answers :

If it is under warranty send it in for repair. if you have done the searching yourself and the solution Sony tech support gave you didn't work my best guess would be that it is a hardware problem, not a software problem. also i would keep the de-fragging down to once a week. i am not sure about the more modern hard drives, but i have been told by pc technicians that overdoing it can ultimately cause hard drive faults and failures.
