View Full Version : really weird monitor sound

11-24-05, 09:28 PM
This is gonna sound crazy but when I'm using Opera and open the history page a high pitched tone comes from my monitor. I haven't noticed it at any other time and it goes away when I close the page. I'm sure its the monitor doing it I've tested everything else. Any ideas? :eek:

Just use Firefox

It may be a color & refresh rate thing; long time ago I had a B&W tv that buzzed when the screen had too much white.

Does the History page fill the screen with more white than any other thing you tend to display? Try setting the desktop to the color of the History page and see if the noise is emitted.

its true the history page has a lot of white but not much more than this thread. i don't think using firefox is a good answer. this is obviously a hardware thing so not too funny guys :(

Try opening the page at diferrent res's and refresh rates start low and go up

I don't get it. Why would my refresh rate be screwing it up when it's fine for everything else?
