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!
If the shaking/shimmer of display was constant, then I would also suspect something along the lines of BurrWalnut's suggestion. But seeing that this only happens on occasions and every few days, it could well be the monitor is nearing the end of it's useful life. [6 years] The benefits of a new monitor will be well worth the expense. Regards. j.
I know it dont sound right, I had a customer who came with same thing, took weeks to find the problem, then customer bought base into shop minus the mouse, I used one of ours and the problem went away, customer says since fitting new mouse, no longer has the problem, has been using the new one for a month now.
was just thinking that myself plankton. Yoir mobile phone constantly checks the network its on to tell everyone where it is and this signal can affect monitors and speakers too. I know if my phone is near by my monitor has a wee shimmy now and again.
I really should move my phone....brb....thats me...shimmy free now...:)
