Monitor Screen Display Jumps In & Out on Sides

  1. I've had my Compaq Presario SR1250NX for 1 1/2 years. It's a Pentium 4 using Windows XP. My monitor is a 17" flat screen (not panel).

    About 2 weeks ago the monitor screen display started jumping in and out on both sides.

    I set the refresh rate to its highest setting (85) and that helped but did not stop it, it just made it less frequent from happening every minute to every several minutes.

    Nothing has changed in my home office electronically. My phone and cell phones are the same they've always been sitting in the same places. I haven't added any programs to my computer, just normal updates as they occur.

    What could this be? What should I do next?

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    Sounds like a monitor problem to me.

    You need to try another monitor to confirm this.
