Faulty CRT monitor?
Posted on 2003-10-25
I recently bought a new 19" flat CRT monitor and it seems bugged. The screen jerks from side to size occasionally as if someone's messing with the "position" geometry controls. It creates this twitching effect in the monitor. It's extremely annoying and happens in EVERY operating system I use. (Win2000, Gentoo Linux, Knoppix Linux)
The funny thing is the twitching of my monitor goes away after a while. then it comes back with a vengence much, much later when i least expect it; after I got used to it not happening anymore.
Do you have any idea what could cause that, other than the monitor being faulty?
You see, I live in the country and I'm not looking forward to driving 3 hours back to the store I bought it from to get a replacement.
Thanks in advance.
