hi,

i have an older maxtech monitor (got it for free) and about a month ago the screen started to look liquidy (i know it's not a word). you can almost see it move. it almost looks like the refreshing but it is too slow. i changed the resolution to 1152x864 and the screen just moved too much that i was getting sea sick. i went back 1024x768 but i hate it. the screen is still jumping. the refresh rate is at 85.i am using a radeon 9500pro. do i need a new monitor or is it something i don't know?


thanks

have you tried deguass? also are you sure your running a resolution and refresh rate that monitor can handle? just because your video card can output it doesn't mean your monitor is gonna like it.

i found some info on it but my model is old. also, when i use a high screen setting you can see the curves of the monitor on the screen. it is very annoying. is it time for a new monitor?

I think you might have killed that monitor if you were running it far out of the specs.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
