HiCustomer Thank you for asking your question on JustAnswer. The other Experts and I are working on your answer. By the way, it would help us to know:

-Have you tried adjusting the monitor brightness?
-Have you changed the resolution and color depth of xp?
-Have you tried changing the refresh rate?
-If you wiggle the monitor cable in the back of the computer does the image change at all?

Thank you again for trusting us with your problem. Please reply as soon as possible so that we can finish answering your question.

what is refresh rate? I have done all the above except refresh rate.
Ok to change your refrsh rate go to the display properties where you would change the color depth and resolution. Click on the advanced button at the top there is a monitor tab click that. That is where the refresh rate is try changing the settings it can help with flickering and sharpness faults.
