    I just raised the refresh rate to above what it says the monitor can handle (80Mhz) and the problem went away. Should I keep it at this and risk blowing it up or is there a better solution?

    Various things can cause monitor quiver, flourescent lights, a tv, bad electical outlets, for example. Eliminate any electrical interference first. I wouldn't keep a refresh rate above what's supported.

    If i were you i would heap it, bad monitors are the reason i wear glasses now, my eye doc told me if i didnt change it i would be blind by the age of 50(im 17 now), because of some lack of abililty to focus at different distances or something, so just throw it out and buy a new one IMO

    Yeh I concur-probably on its way out if you can eliminate interference.

    Do your eyes and your head in.
