why is my screen shaking?

  mco 18:52 11 Oct 2003

hi everyone - can anyone tell me why my screen occasionally (every couple of days) just gets the shakes? I've a brand new computer but my monitor dates from 1997, my mouse is recent but v cheap and my keyboard's a couple of years old and decent. I run windows 98se and bt broadband (but it'll shake even when I'm not using internet or trying to do too many things at once.) Thanks!

either an earthquake or more likely your monitor is on the way out. Ask Santa for a new TFT.

If it's not on the "blink" it's because you have a piece of equipment too near to it, e.g. printer, scanner or similar.

Have you rearranged the layout of the equipment since you bought the new PC?

thanks everyone - much food for thought - I certainly do have a light by my set up and will experiment with it on/off to see if that affects it. Mouses - mice? are easy to come by so I'll see if a different one helps. And I was looking for an excuse to get a new monitor so now I have an excuse - please Santa hurry!
