Flickering display 27" 3.06 Core2Duo 1TB McLaurin My screen (iMac 27") is fine UNTIL I go into a more graphics intense process. If I go into PhotoBooth, turn on some effects .. then BAM, there go the flickers. Flickers (plus screen going black intermittently) continue until restart, even if I quit

Flickering display 27" 3.06 Core2Duo 1TB GSears Booted up for the first time, I had already begun experiencing the flicker problems. To say the least, it wasn't boding well for my new machine.

Noisy Screen 21.5" 3.06 Core2Duo 1TB derbyStar16 I just bought and received a new 21.5'' iMac and love it but the screen is making a high pitched noise, similar to a dog whistle. It's that sound that isn't loud but pierces through your brain. And the brighter the backlight is, the louder it gets.
