I have exprienced this problem, my monitor shrinked vertically, it also flickers, i normally play on line games, does it affect my monitor in everyday playing? i already have tried every possible solution i have, setting my hardware acceleration, and everything about my computer display, but nothing happens. any body can help me solve this problem of mine. i hve tried to change my AVR, thought that i am just experiencing power loss, i also did change my connector from monitor to CPU/AVR.
Have you try it on another pc ,if not try it and if this does not work, look if your monitor is not near a source of electromagnetic waves (like a speaker)remove this source,if this also does not work there is definitely a hardware problem. Which the cause maybe in the deflection block or any akin circuits

it is possible that the monitor has a power crunch as a lower voltage gives out a shrinking picture. also it is possible that the deflection circuit or the vertical circuit, the vertical driver IC or section is faulty.
You can remove power and check for dry soldering, measure the power supply to confirm.
You're monitor is dying and you need a replacement (Starlogic brand is notorious for dying early and giving poor performance)
You're graphics card is going out. If you have an extra monitor laying around, take out the Starlogic one and plug in the other to see if the same results occur, if not, it's the Starlogic monitor, if the problem still persists, you need a new graphics card or need to update your current drivers.
You have a bad solder connection in the vertical circuit. This will require you to resolder these bad connections before it blows out the vertical output IC or other parts in the circuit. Do this ASAP before you make a small repair into a large one. If you have no solid state printed circuit board experience, please play it safe and take the set into a pro to do this for you. Good Luck
