    External Display Flickers
    I have a macbook Pro hooked up to a small advent LCD TV via VGA. The TV has a tendency to flicker a lot or cut out for a second or two and then come back on. Anybody have any idea why this is happening? Is there a recommended setting for resolution?

    Try the different resolutions to find one that is stable, I would suggest starting at 1024 x 768 and working your way up. If the problem persists it could be your adapter or lead thats gonna bad.
