I have a HD6970 and 3 Asus PA246Q's and one of them is connected to the mini DB Connector on my card. Occasionally (and annoyingly) that monitor will randomly flicker a few times. 

I have an active adapter but it's unpowered. 

Anyone experience this and have a fix/workaround?

Windows 7 x64.

This is sometimes related to your PSU. Does it flicker when your HDD is busy?

Have you tried switching the monitors to see if it is the same monitor flickering.
