    Hi i have a 21" Sony Triniton monitor its my 2nd one, other week i had installed new drivers and it set the refresh rate too 60hz, now i thought updating drivers it would just set it too what i used(what normally happend)

    i came back too it and the screen saver hadn't kicked in and the screen was like warping abit, like at top and bottom jumping up and down, now this only happend with the refresh rate being at 60hz and was only at that for a hour or two, is the monitor knackerd now ?

    Running a CRT at such a low resolution is likely to cause the symptoms you mention but will not do it any harm. Is it OK now you've reset to a higher resolution of above at least 85 hertz?

    Doesn't matter what rez, what refreshrate tried it at lower rez and higher on refreshrate on the off chance its the same all the time now. Tried it in 1024xx768 upto 120hz, all the way upto 1600x1200 max of 75hz
