Re: noise from monitor, HELP!


I have a 17" 'emachines' monitor. It was making some pretty heavy
noise too when I first fired up x after running XF86Setup.  I don't know
why but in windoz it was quiet but x was giving it grief.. I finally tweaked
the settings and cured the noise (Think I increased the res)..   I'm sure
it's probably unrelated, but I recall seeing upgrades to x the last two
times I ran the 'apt-get update/upgrade' so perhaps you need to
tweak things on ur end... Just a thought.

Good luck
