Move any computer-speakers further away from the monitor -- the magnetic fields in the speakers can affect the screen.

Also, move any power-bars away the monitor.

Take the monitor away from the computer, and connect it to a different desktop/laptop computer, to see if the "shaking" follows the monitor.

Try a different monitor with your computer, to see if the computer's video-card is the cause of the problem.

Need help to fix Monitor

It broke in transit. There's a connection to the screen broken, and shaking it makes it contact again. The case is held together with snaps, which are a pain to get apart but can be done with thin tools like putty knife or screwdriver. You might be able to find something loose, you might be able to solder it back on or just put some tape on it to keep it connected. You might just chuck it when it drives you crazy.

My screen just went pink. HP pavilion fx70. Is there a life span for this monitor ? Thank you Donna F.

Might be just a loose cable. Double check if the cables are connected properly. Try to plug and unplug.

Display on my monitor is shaking. I checked the videocard and even the power supply but it still didn't stop from shaking. I even try to use different monitor but the problem is still there.


1. Have you tried replacing your video card? If you have a back up video card use it temporarily and check if the display is still shaking.
2. How did you check your power supply? If you have digital tester then check the output voltage from the power supply connector, the yellow should read 12v and the read is 5v. If the readings is below the said standard volts, then its not stable, and you will need to replace it.
3. Last to check is the cord you are using to connect your monitor to the video card, If you have available, try also replacing this.

I have a microtek 17' monitor model is 41f

This can be caused by low Screen Refresh rate. Eg 60Mhz. To increase this go to Display propertes > Setting > Advance > Monitor > Screen Refresh rate
Your graphic driver must be installed correctly to be able to make this change.

HP 1730 lcd monitor horizontal glitches on screen. the monitor shows clearly but the screen shakes up and down until it enlarges itself of the screen so you can't see the task bar on thebottom the screen...

find the buttons on the monitor itself,  they control all those things.  I had the same problem myself.  It's not within the operating system --- it's the monitor itself.  It's not display control or any of those things
good luck

Shaking Monitor

I had the same problem when I reached in back of my pc and disconnected a web cam from a usb port. Them my monitor started shaking and i thought it was related to the web cam unplugging from the usb. I tried uninstalling my video card driver, and re-installing. Still no fix for the shake. So i tried turning off the monitor, and removing the monitor cable from the back of the pc. I re-attached the monitor cable, and powered on the monitor. Bam! No more shaking, all was good with monitor picture. The problem is, and was, as i unplugged the web cam usb plug from the usb port, i bumped into the monitor cable near where it plugs into the pc port. The problem is that there is a weak solder joint in the motherboard in the video card holder socket. I will need to either find the weak solder joint, and fix it, or replce the motherboard. I have a older dell antique dimension 8100 that i still like. It is the original motherboard and it is from 2002. I know i should replace this old pc, but i have done a lot of upgrades on it, and has been a great old pc. After shelling out over $2,000 for this unit in 2002, i want to keep running it. It does all i need to do. They don't build pc's this solid anymore. I hope this helps someone. Thank you!
