What could be causing this noise?

Is the refresh rate too high?

dont think so have not played with it at all. Sometimes it does not make the noise but then later it does. But dont hear when playing games

RUN :eek: before it blows up :lol:

if the refresh rate is OK - how old is it ? Could be faulty -- Under Warranty still ??

Both my 107s5 and 107s6 do that, still going fine though. I think it's just an age thing.

Applies the same to CRT monitors

Probably the noise is coming from the HT lead where it enters the tube. It is most likely caused by a build up of dust. Take the case off and wipe away the dust and swivel the HT lead left and right 2 or 3 times and that should cure it until next time. Caution make sure the monitor has not been going for at least 30 to 45 mins before you do this as you end up lying flat on the floor from a electric shock.
