Fuzzy picture

  toadoftoadhall 17:44 02 Aug 2003

In the last couple of weeks my monitor has started going fuzzy at the top and bottom corners and buzzing slightly every time I have a window maximised on the desktop.
If I reduce the size of the window, it stops, and it doesnt happen when doing anything else, such as playing games, etc.
I've updated drivers, downloaded Directx 9b, and tried changing resolutions, etc. Nothing seems to work and it's steadily getting worse.

Can anyone tell me what they think the problem might be?

I have PIII 500, 384 Mb RAM, NVidia 64Mb Graphics card and run Win 98se. My monitor is a cheap and cheerful 19" thing which doesnt have a brand name on it. I've got it set to optimal refresh rate and it's currently running in 800x600.

is the "cheap and cheerful 19" thing"?

It might be demonstrating why it was cheap. The symptoms you describe do tend to indicate that the Electron gun is no longer coping quite so well.

..it's only about a year or so I think. It gets a fair bit of use - probably 20 or so hours a week. Time for a new one you think?

It may have a three year swap out. Check with the Manufacturers site, there may be one on the back plate

I thought it might be a software problem - obviously not...
