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.

    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?

    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.

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

    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.

    Viewsonic is fairly decent - they make acceptable monitors.
