    What did it mean, that you asked for see videos of flickering monitors? Did you mean, your laptop/desktop monitor flickering? If yes, what OS is there? Have you updated the OS with recent updates? Is there external video card? Please provide more details.

    Are you looking to get one for designing a game or other presentation? What format do you need the file in?

    Ok, this is a strange format.  Pero here it goes again:

    Thank you Todd and I'm sorry for my confusing question.  My computer is having some kind of flickering and more and when I tried to describe it to a techie he wanted to actually see it happening and since this happens only randomly, I thought I'd ask if someone had it to show a video of it for my techie.  :)  I did search the net and couldn't find any at all.

    TO: Subhendu Sen:  Thank you for your reply.  It's my Dell desktop that flickers and does a lot more interference making it impossible to type or do anything else while it lasts which may last a few minutes or longer and it happens all across all different types of software, on Word, on emails, on internet etc...Even while I type on an outside website...

    Also, at the same time (that's why I call these happenings "tsunami") or by itself, the right hand vertical scrolling bar suddenly rushes all the way down like a jet plane taking with it any text already on my email page or while I'm typing...Awfully weird and terribly interfering with my work...   :(

    I have W10, Outlook 2010, Gmail, Chrome browser.  I get automatic windows updates.   I don't know if there is an external video card so I probably don't have it.

    You may see why I asked that weird question by reading my reply to Todd. 

    Thanks again for trying to help me.   :o)

    I'd start with searching Google for [ video of flickering monitor ]. I don't know of any single site (nor even a group of them) that hosts various videos of them. You might just have to go through a number of them to see what comes close.

    Thank you for your reply. You said a lot, but did not mention what OS is there? Though, you can try to run run Dell LCD Built-in Self Test on the same system. This test helps to determine if the screen/monitor of the computer is functioning normally. If it is Windows 10, please link here for more help: https://www.dell.com/support/article/in/en/indhs1/sln298620/troubleshooting-a-flickering-display-after-a-windows-10-upgrade?lang=en

    I understand better now. What model Dell computer do you have? It sounds like a possible video card issue. What screen resolution and refresh rate are you current settings. Some time tweaking these can help. Also is this a Dell monitor or a secondary purchase? List the make an model so we can check the specs. Not all monitors can run all resolutions. It may be as simple fix to replace the video card as long as it is no integrated into the motherboard. That can get a little pricier and may be a warning the the mother board is starting to fail. You may have a hard time finding a video online of your specific problem. You could always take one with a smart phone or digital camera and send that off.

    Thank you all so much for trying to help me. I'll clarify a bit more:

    I have: Dell desktop, W10, Outlook 2010 & Gmail emails, Chrome browser, Word 2010. Automatic windows updates. The desktop is old but the quality is super excellent that's why it lasted so long without any problems until now.  :)

    TheRealRaven: First thing I did was googling and not finding any, brought me to this forum.  

    Subhendu Sen: As you see above, I have W10. Thanks so much for this info, I'll be sure to run that test and also to read the link you so kindly sent me. I hope to determine what it is that's causing this thing.
    ToddN2000: Model: Dell Inspiron 560.  I don't think I have a video card but not sure. Thanks so much for suggesting that screen resolution and refresh rate might have something to do with this thing. I have to search what screen resolution I have and will see if I can test it (I'm afraid to search it now and lose what I'm writing here) lol! I purchased both new the computer and the monitor at the same time and directly from Dell. 
    "You could always take one with a smart phone or digital camera and send that off."
    Oh definitely THIS is the preliminary solution and thank you for reminding it to me....problem is I haven't had the time to search for what smartphone I should buy so I could take a video and show to techies.  Also at the same time my printer stopped working but I didn't yet replace it for the same reason:  too busy trying to fix my Dell (besides life's other situations to attend to) and also busy having to go out to the store to have my printing done, etc....However, I do begin to see the light at the end of my tunnel, lol!      :)
    THANK YOU AGAIN TO ALL! I'm keeping all your excellent suggestions and will try them as soon as I can. :o)

    Another option if you have it would be to try another monitor. Maybe you have a friend or co-worker that would let you try theirs and see if the problem still exists. If it does, then the problem is with the computer if the problem goes away the it's you monitor that is having the issue. To find the screen resolution and refresh rate, right click on the desktop and go to display properties. Scroll down a bit then select advanced display settings.

    Yes it is Windows 10. Sorry I missed. Is there a discrete PCIe x 16 video card installed/ using the integrated VGA graphics connector for the monitor ?

    While it is Windows 10, you can try to boot into Safe Mode. After rebooting in Safe mode, select option 5 to launch the system into Safe Mode with Networking. Now do a system search for Device Manager and select the relevant result. Click the arrow next to Display drivers to expand the category. Right-click graphics card, click Uninstall, check Delete the driver for this device and then click OK. Restart your system again. Windows installs the driver automatically.
