I just noticed the last few days my screen is shaking a bit. On the left hand side...does this mean it's dieing or what? It seems to only do it in windows, and not during games, but it could be my terrible eye sight lying to me, or denial..help please.

I had same problem, but it took a while for monitor to finally die. :blink: :D

A good excuse to get flat screen. ;)

Possibly intense magnetic field in near vicinity.
Tried degaussing? Or is it one of those older things that didn't have degauss?

Of course, it's possible that the thing is actually dying down, but as Anubis said it usually takes them a while from first symptoms to reaching an official junk status.

Speakers and/or transformers are the most common causes..

You don't happen to have any wires with transformers on within say 50-70 cm from the BACK of your screen?

Oh.. and for god sake, do NOT listen to Indignus IV's "advice", as this might harm the monitors allignment permanently.

I had couple of monitors with simillar problems, but as they were under warranty (at work) I was able to replace them. KDS monitors seems t be bad product.... :blink:

The moniters at my school do that, but that's also because they're the most horrendously budget priced hardware you will ever see.

Monitor Shaking sounds like a sport.

I have a toaster at about 4 feet from my monitor, and every time I use it my monitor screen "dance" slightly. Same thing happen for a split second when my fridge start too (I have a very small appartment :whistle:).

If anything fail, I would check if there is an electronical device you installed somewhere near the computer recently and try turning it out to see if it gets better.

Thanks guys, I think it's just kicking it in, as I have nothing around that could be effecting it.
I tried degaussinmg, and it helps but not 100 % and the effects come back after an hour or so. I'm tired of the eye strain anyways, time for a LCD

Sad to hear that :/

Oh well.. had one monitor that went out in a mushroom-cloude.
Was pretty awsom..
The picture shown was a 1 cm wide line verticaly on the screen..
When i opend it, i saw that BOTH wires to the magnets on BOTH sides had melted and there where plenty of debree spread around inside the case... Pretty awsom.. i suppose i should be glad that the vacum-caseing didn't implode ;)

BOOOOOOOOOOOOMMMMMMMMMMMMM, what the hell kind of monitor was that ??? I had those that just did the one cm wide line in the center when it died , but never one that blew up .

And I can related to the school hardware being cheap , my university decided to get these stupid IBM clones prob from Buck-A-Day or something . Half the time they are broken down , and some of the monitors are already doing the wavy thing , and they're not even a year old yet.
