Is your screen an LCD or CRT? If CRT, most Dell monitors made in the past 5 years, have a Deguass mode. That is all you need to do. Also, if you have any speakers or magnetic clips or electric motors (say a 10-key or calculator) next to your monitor, they are notorious for causing these kinds of things. If that is the case, move the device and deguass the screen. -- greg, firstname.lastname@example.org The technology that is Stronger, Better, Faster: Linux Use Debian GNU/Linux, its a bazaar thing NOTICE: Due to Presidential Executive Orders, the National Security Agency may have read this email without warning, warrant, or notice, and certainly without probable cause.
