    Dry

    starting to get a wavy display,
    like, more frequently now even....

    like I'm looking at a heat mirage or something
    you know how you look at a hot roadtop in the distance,
    and it looks all shimmery/wavy?

    that's what my f*cking monitor is displaying now

    I tried some googling, but only thing I found was related to an old gfx chipset running Win95
    it mentioned the refresh rate, so I said what the hell and tried that,
    going from 85Hz to 75Hz

    it seems to be getting worse instead of better

    I'm wondering if the bow in my gfx PCB has anything to do with it?
    (putting the Zalman on it warped the shit out of it I think)

    or would this be a monitor related deal? it is pretty old.....

    Probably monitor related.
    Try moving it away from speakers and such that might be around it, and try the degauss button if you have one (or try turning it off and on, or off for a while).

    Do you have any magnetic field sources near the monitor? Maybe speakers or something? Move them away.

    Does your monitor have a degauss feature? Try using that.

    Edit: rossco beat me.

    nah, no magnetic sources....unless my TI calculator is one bad mofo
    I'll see what the degauss stuff does
    (you know I've never really known what it does)

    I get that with my servers cuz the monitors for each are side by side, and when theyre both on, one of them gets wavy, but they are hardly ever on, so..........

    okie dokie.....
    think it might be acting normally now

    degaussed
    (I actually have some kind of clue about the degaussing now, google is great)
    shut it down overnight instead of letting it go into standby

    thanks ross & VB

    It definitely won't do it when the monitor is off.
