What could cause a 17" CTX 1765 monitor to have the subtle shakes?  I've kept the obvious away from the monitor. My video card is an 8 meg Millenium I.

Is it constant, or random?
Does it happen after it warms up?

Does droping the screen resolution solve the problem?

Generally, It is caused by a flaky filter capacitor on the high voltage section of your monitor.
If it is under warranty, have it replaced now.
