How do I fix my shaking screen?


Hi I, recently have developed monitor screen roll. The action is more of a shaking motion rather than roll. I would be pleased to recieve any advise from your group as to where/who

or how to deal with this computer quake. It does not seem to be steady, but seems to be increasing in frequency. Thankyou in advance Gladys


This question was answered on June 2, 2004. Much of the information contained herein may have changed since posting.

1st, try connecting another good-working monitor to your computer Check, also, that your monitor cord connected to your computer is firmly screwed in

2 If 2nd monitor is working ok, then you know the problem is not in your computer If it is still shaking, then the problem could be your video card may need to update your video card driver Or, make sure your video card is firmly seated inside your computer if you have an add-on video card

3 If you got any new hardware, perhaps Speakers? try and make sure the speakers are not very close to the screen and see if that does anything.
