Does anyone know if there are any problems with radiation from flat sreen monitors? I've recently purchased a 15" & noticed that I get a "feeling" in my head.

It definitely is not a radiation problem.

Are you sitting in a comfortable position with the screen in view. Have you tried click here

Well you get electromagnetic radiation, in the visible frequencies.

It's more likely you're squinting because you've got the resolution too high to view comfortably.

do not emit any radiation at all. Well they do, but it's in the form of light, and any radiant object does that - a lightbulb for instance - and it's perfectly harmless.

If you are getting a 'feeling' in your head it's possibly caused by the resolution setting, as DieSse has said. Experiment with a different setting, and see what happens, but put all thoughts of harmful radiation out of your mind.
