    Find a good-sized wheatstone bridge and throw it over the side.

    I would take it back and ask them to exchange it. sending in a rebate doesn't invalidate the warranty. Make them hook it up at the store this time.
    I Could be wrong.

    Speaking of which I read in a book once to allways go to the store & look at the monitor in use because you will spend a lot of time looking at it. Maybe we should begin spinning them around in all directions to see how the picture is. Cant' you see the guy at the store when u ask him to spin the monitor so you can look at it! Might be a good cure for pesky salespeople. Or does wheatstone absorb these pesky cosmic fields. I prefer shredded wheatstone myself.

    This is known as "pumping", a sign of poor voltage regulation inside the monitor (read: a cheaper-than-would-have-been-nice design). When the ray beamer draws more power (because the image is brighter), then the deflection unit's input voltage drops slightly, making the image a tad smaller.

    On a dark wallpaper, open an empty (white) window to maximum width but a lower height, and you'll possibly see that the screen narrows only where the window is, not above and below.

    It's true it's not you only

    the problem is not even really Viewsonic's fault

    it's simply the fact that it's a FLAT monitor

    that's why i HATE FLAT monitor

    here at work i have a FLAT 19" monitor Sony Trinitron, and it has also that annoying DIP that you describe, and on top of that, the annoying lines of the Trinitron

    so i just use it on my test machines, that way i don't have to face that annoying screen all the time

    have thought of getting just a normal CRT monitor? the non FLAT ones?

    I am running dual monitors, a 15 inch Maxtech and a 17 inch Sylvania. Recently the 15" monitor started getting jumpy and flickering then it would smooth out after a while. Lately it has been getting worse and the then the 17" monitor started acting weird. I was beginning to wonder about the video card. Last night the florescent lights in the ceiling quit working. I changed the tubes and as if by magic, both monitors suddenly smoothed out and are better then ever. RF interference was obviously the culprit in this case.

    Uke

    your monitors and video card is fine

    that's a common normal thing

    because the 2 different sizes monitor are so close together it kinda picks up the interference from the other one.

    i see this everyday here at work

    if you put them far apart then you won't notice that.



    and i wont even bother go into details of people will start going nuts over head about what's right and wrong

    AG, I am pretty certain it was just the florescent light going bad. It is working fine now after changing the tubes. The 15" monitor is directly under it, but if it happens again I will try moving them farther apart.

    by the way, you wont see that annoying "abnormality" if both of your monitors were of the same size and using the same Hz.

    regardless of the manufacture and year or model

    at work here 1 side i have a flat 19" sony trinitron, and the other a viewsonic 19 normal no flat, both at 100 hz, and no prob,

    but if i pair them up with a 17" anything, for the same dual display then, i see those annoying lines moving from top to bottom or bottom to top, depending on the monitor.

    I didn't have any annoying lines. It was just my monitor doing the Hula. Being in Hawaii too long must have rubbed off on it.

    well like Bill said, might have been in part also due the Geomagnetic field, and the celestial constellation and their cosmic rays

    that will certainly make that dance a good hula hu
