I've never seen it with my own eyes. It's just been described over the
phone. I suspect it's the flashing between dos-like boot up screens and the
95 blue sky. I've been able to lessen them by tinkering with autoexec.bat
and config.sys. I'mm down to just one flicker now.

Personally, I don't mind the flicker. But the user insists that it wasn't
like that before her little daughter turned off the PC without shutting it
down properly. Any ideas on what this might have done to her system ?

She also took notice of other computers as they booted up and didn't see
any flicker.

Now, if this last flicker is caused by the refresh rate, how do I get it
back to "normal" - meaning, no flickers ?
