High-pitched noise from my monitor

My monitor started emitting a high-pitched sound today.  It's not very loud, but it goes away when I turn the monitor off.  Any iodeas?  It's a Extreme Flat brand, I've had it for less than 2 years.  Thanks.

KDS is a cheap brand - I've had one of their large screens go dead on me in a short time.  I personally like Eizo, who make very sharp monitors.  NEC and Samsung are also good choices.

Does it go away after the monitor heats up?

If not, try smacking the side of the monitor case a few times with your hand, gently but firmly.

This worked on my wifes's 6 year old KDS 15" crt.

Hope this helps.

LOL - Get a bigiger hammer.
Is this the KDS "Exterm Flat" moniter? or is it a different brand.

The nosie means that  the monitor is dying. It could be tomorrow ot in a year. But with th price of monitors I would buy a new one.

It's Xflat.  The woprd Extreme is written in the letter X.

Any suggestions for a new one?

What about Unisonic?  Is there a problem with a message that it hasn't been tested with Windows XP?

CallandorCommented:
Unisonic is not a well-known brand.  It's not a big deal that drivers have not been tested with WinXP - there are hundred, if not thousands of drivers that fall in this category.
