    Is the whole screen shaky sometimes? Are you using a CRT? (Large deep, heavy monitor) If yes to both of those then its your monitor. I would recommend a nice new LCD. I love the ones that Dell make they as the best bang for the buck.

Hp 2010i monitor shaky, can't find degauss option

I don't think degaussing your monitor is going to help with this issue. Degaussing mainly addresses color correction around the monitor edges due to a magnetic field and applies to CRT monitors not LCD monitors which yours is. If by your term "shaky" you mean the image is unstable, then the problem is either in the main board which controls the X Y sync or with the power supply board. If you are knowledgeable with electronics you could probably repair this at home for $40 or less. If not then I would shop for another monitor to replace yours. Don't throw your old monitor away, instead post it for sale on craigslist. There are a lot of do it yourself type people who will buy this either for parts or to repair and resell. I don't know what it will bring as far as cash, might be $40 might be $5 but anything is better than zero.

My screen is shaky and cloudy

Hi Yugtob,

Seems like you're having problem with the display of your computer. There are some reasons why your system displays shaky and cloudy screen. Sometimes it caused by a corrupted video driver or system has a faulty screen (hardware failure). Going to the bios and installing the latest driver are basic diagnostics that you can apply to check if this is a software or hardware problem.

Try to replicate the issue by going to the bios
1. Turn off the computer.
2. Boot the computer then start tapping the F2 key.
3. Inside the bios please observe the display if it's still shaky or cloudy.
--> If it has the same issue, system has a faulty screen and needs to be fixed and replaced.
--> If no issue, just reinstall the video driver.

How to reinstall the video driver.
1. Download the driver here:

2. Go to the video section. Then select the operating system that corresponds to your computer.

3. Save the .exe file to your desktop.

4. Install the driver then restart the computer.

--> if you're still encountering the same issue try to perform OKR to set the computer back to the default factoring setting.
Please visit my link to have the complete guide for the One Key Recovery (OKR).

Computer display jumbled and unreadable

From what you describe, I'd suspect the Graphics processor, or even the motherboard as a source of the problem if the monitor works on a different system normally (Best way to check the monitor is a known good video source)

If it is the system, and the system is 8 years old, I'd recommend replacing the system rather than attempting to fix it. Trying to fix GOOD parts for an obsolete system is difficult at bst and oftern can be expensive. Often you can find a low end NEW system (One that is like 20 times faster than the failing system) for less than $300
