monitior gives persistant high pitched squeal

My monitor gives out a high pitched squeal when the page on display is mainly white, such as these forums. If I go to a coloured page the squeal dissapears.

The squeal is almost as bad as my tinitus.

Any ideas. Changing resoloution dosn't really make much of a difference.

Monitor settings in windows or on the monitor. The monitor dose not have the option to change hertz.

I've changed it in xp and will see what happens.

Could be a mouse in the monitor!

I had a similar problem with a TV, (intermittant high pitched noise) the repair man sprayed one of the transformers with some kind of varnish and the problem has not returned yet (over 10 years ago!) I think the transformer was vibrating slightly and the varnish just held it in place.

The varnish was probably to insulate the high tension side of the transformer.

*EDIT*

I just remembered, a tv we used to have, had a large capicitor that was making a high pitched whistle for a while.
It eventualy went pop and set on fire! :shock:

The noise you are hearing is at the same frequency as the noise that only under 24 yr olds can hear! Its the one thats been developed into a mobile phone ringtone that teachers can't hear and now a dance track! Genius Cheesy
