Hi,

Do you have anything near it that might cause interference?  Speakers, radio, wireless devices, magnets?

speakers and wireless lan, does this affect? previously no problem, it only happens recently.

Try relocating them and see if the problem clears up...
It 'can' cause interference - all depends on how well that equipment is shielded.

Also - do you have a degauss/reset button on the montior?

Is this a CRT monitor?  How old is it?

I have this problem on a not-so-great monitor - the screen shakes using any refresh rate higher than 60Hz...

Mine is a Samsung SyncMaster 753DFX CRT monitor, tried the degauss button but doesnt change anything still the same.

Which video cards did you try?  What resolution are you trying to display?

Just wondering if you tried lowering the refresh rate to 60Hz per my previous comment.

MarkFoo1979Author Commented:
the refresh rate is already set to 60Hz. the graphic card i am using is nvidia geforce fx 5200 agp 128mb. but the problem still exist.

CallandorCommented:
By any chance, do you have fluorescent lights in the room?  They interact very badly with 60Hz refresh rates and cause flicker.

MarkFoo1979Author Commented:
the fluorescent lights is about 1.5m away from my monitor, do you think it is too near?

CallandorCommented:
Try an experiment: turn it off and look at your screen - I'll bet that is the cause of your "shaking" phenomenon.  If you have to have fluorescent lights, choose a refresh rate of 72 or 85Hz to avoid flicker.

I like the way you think Callendor.

The refresh rate (measured in vertical Hertz) may be set too low.
    Solution: Try setting this refresh rate to at least 72 Hz. (Do this through the video card setup, not on the PC monitor.)

Flicker or shaking may be caused by another electronic or motorised device, either placed too close to the PC monitor or plugged into the same electric circuit (on the same circuit breaker).
Solution: Try moving the offending device further away from the PC monitor, or try turning off all appliances or devices on the same circuit breaker
