Monitor EeEping

I may actually be insane.

I don't know if this is a common problem or what.
but my monitor after prolonged usage has started to eep (make a whistling / screeching sound) the only way i can seem to fix it is leave it turned off for half an hour or so then return to it.
Now its a fairly new monitor so i can't justify buying a new one right now so does anyone know why this is happening or even a solution.
i'm guessing its down to over-heating, but its not THAT new, so why has it started doing it now? btw, its a Hansol 710p 17" running @ 1280x1024.

sounds like overheating to me. next time it does that, place a fan near the back of it to cool it off and see if it stops within a minute or so.

You can but a small fan that will sit on the monitor & suck the heat away if heat is a continuning problem. If it is still under warranty now is the time to take it back.

Just a thought: You're not running a refresh rate that's too high for that resolution are you? As you probably know, every monitor has a maximum safe refresh rate spec which usually goes down as the resolution goes up.

Then I would definitely look at the warranty before it really goes kaput.

Have you tried Hansol tech support or maybe the FAQ page at their site (assuming they have one)?
