    ddp/anyone who can help,


    Do you or anyone have any ideas as to what could be causing a crackling line distortion that i only see when i make something big on the screen or expanded to full screen(moving images not still images mainly dvds). It's been doing it the whole time i've had the monitor since it was purchased new... so it's not like it just started happening recently or anything... it's just that i had given up on it until i stumbled across this website and figured someone out there will know the cure :p
    I now have do have the proper updated monitor drivers installed ...
    Any help would be greatly appreciated (as always)

    Cheers!

    take a look in monitor manual for frequency besides voltage frequency. you should have upwards of 3 different frequencies to play with
