Question about Compaq fs740 17" CRT Monitor
A couple of weeks ago, my monitor started randomly (?) putting out a very high 'beep'. Its not like a 'notification beep', but a monotonous long 'beeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeep', at a very high (all through your bones) tone. Sometimes the beep stops when I switch my browserwindows to a site with a differently colored background (so when its beeping at white, it will stop at black, and v.v.), but sometimes it just goes on all the time. I have no built in speakers, and the sound definitely doesnt come out of them, as its also there when my speakers are detached completely. I have thought of it being my soundcard, but my pc (not my screen) is on the floor now and i still hear the sound coming out of the monitor's direction, and it stops when i turn my monitor off. It's a pretty old (5+ yrs) monitor, so maybe thats the problem, but maybe you know what else might be up, and if theres a way for me to fix it. Thanks for you time.
Sounds like you have a capacitor going bad. All monitors make a noise, whether the human ear can usually hear it or not. If it has gotten rather loud, I'm afraid your monitor is on its last leg. White is a hard color for a monitor, because the electron gun inside has to fire on all pixels, and of course black is easiest because it is just blank. Some people I've talked to have had temporary relief or prolonged the life of their monitor by keeping it on lower resolution in order to make its job a bit easier. Besides that, there isn't too much you can do.
