dust getting electrocuted can make monitors crackle, but flickering can be from interference or video card problems in the tower ... or quick, duck ... seriously, smell anything funny there? :shock:

Think this belongs in hardware, heh?

most likely the monitor
are you stationed near several other monitors, i know in my computer lab at school, whenever someone turns a monitor on, both of the other monitors beside it do the "deguass" feature. but its most likely the monitor, ive never heard of a virus do something like that

there are a few things that are pretty easy to fix that could be causing a flicker... depending on the kind of flicker.
one is a power issue. there could be something wrong with the cord, perhaps even internally (where it's probably permanently fixed to the computer... something could have come loose.) - see if when you shake, push, etc. the power cord, anything changes for the worse or the better... be gentle
one is a connection issue. the cord between the monitor and the computer could have some similar issue.
there could also be some kind of transmission interference. cathode ray tubes are really sensitive, so unsheilded speakers, cell phones, other monitors, even cheap radios, can all mess with a monitor... usually not inducing a full on flicker (except in the case of cell phones)

just some thoughts.
