Flickering monitor after sleep mode?

My monitor flicker when taken off screen saver, and sometimes when browsing web pages. This is not a subtle flicker, but actual flashing. I tried the following:

1. In device Manager-searched for an updated driver, and it said that I already have the most current driver.

2. Tried the original CD that came with the monitor, but the most current Windows version listed was Vista (that's how old this monitor is) I have Windows 8.

Otherwise, the monitor looks and functions fine.

    My guess is that because it's old, the flickering is a sign it's dieing.

    maybe you can take it to a computer place and have them fix it

    depending on the type of flicker, it could indicate the connection between the screen and laptop motherboard is wearing out and shorting.

    i would take it to a repair shop and have them look at it.
