If I boot or reboot on a warm computer and warm monitor,
there is no sizzling sound and the vibrating image is much less,
appearing as if I am seeing double images slightly offset.
If I hold the boot screen for say 20 minutes, the vibrating image
gradually disappears (appears more normal) from the top left screen
and finally down to the bottom right screen. Even after 20 minutes I can still
detect upon close inspection, the words on the right side of the screen
still vibrating very slightly. Maybe after an hour or so the vibration
would possibly go away. I did not want to wait that long.
Any ideas on what the problem is or suggestions appreciated.
Windows xp system
Dell Precision 650 workstation - 8 years old
nVidia quadro4 900xgl graphics card - refurbished 6 mo. old
Nanao FlexScan FX C6 Monitor (14 YEARS OLD)
Over the past year on bootup my monitor makes a loud "sizzling" or "hissing" sound and the image vibrates on the screen to the point now where I cannot read the text or even tell that it is text now. The hissing and vibrating has gotten progressively worse - louder and increased vibration.
All the above problems suddenly disappears when the "Log on" Window appears, and suddenly everything is fine and back to normal.
Early on the image would vibrate at times even up to the time the desktop screen would appear and then gradually go back to normal after a few minutes.
In a separate issue over the past 2-3 months the image on the screen has turned yellow. This starts on bootup and remains and does not go away. i.e. everything I view has a yellow cast to it. I checked the graphics card, cables, connections, pins. Everything is well seated and appears fine.
I did not replace the cable.
For a brief period the yellow went away but came back shortly after.
About a 1-1/2 months ago I got a "bluescreen of death" (in this case it was a gray screen, since I think the blue does not show) It said to check the video card or update the driver if problem continues. I did not change or update since this particular problem has not appeared again.
The monitor is 14 years old.
Any idea what the problems are?
