Every so often my screen will stretch itself out so that images and text and everything become distorted. It kinda makes the same click noise that it does when I turn my monitor on/off. It does this on its own, and as of right now it appears to happen randomly. I haven't really noticed anything I do to cause this to happen.

Any ideas

Is there anything magnetic near your monitor?

Perhaps your monitor is dying?

I think my brother said something about the magnetic field resetting so I will ask him to look at it later or something

mhmm sounds to me like either the cables aren't fully inserted. or it has a more serious problem with the tubes or something. . .


is the monitor old?

Yeah I guess it's kinda old. Think it's on its way out?

It's doing it again and it's annoying me

Definitely sounds like a monitor that's on its way out.

Give it a few good kicks every now and then to hurry up its demise. Then your parents can get you a 20" widescreen LCD (way better than a 19)

I used to have that problem - mainly to do with a dodgy connection but the monitor broke not long after
