Okay, I'm using an HP S70 17 inch monitor. Just today I switched the resolution to 1024 X 768 from 800 X 600. When I made the switch, the screen was very shakey and the picture would not stay in one place. I probably kept it at 1024 X 768 for about 5 mintues until I turned it back down to 800 X 600. When I turned the resolution back down, the screen started to shake a little on my regular resolution and then it stopped adn everything looked fine. About 5 minutes later I smelled the nice aroma of flying electronics so I quickly turned the monitor off before it burst into a spectacular display of smoke and flames. :eek: Could the reason that it started to fry be because of me turning up the resolution or what do you guys think caused it. The monitor is rated at a maximum resolution of 1280 X 1024 at 60 hertz. So if anyone could help me figure out this mystery then I'd really appreciate it. Thanks, Michael.
