    Moniter decided to put on an annoying show

    Hi there,

    My 5 year old NEC Multisync XV17+ monitor has been acting up lately. The following problems began to occur when I installed WinXP Pro.

    The monitor seems to readjust it's size on it's own. What happens is the display will shrink and reappear all within a second. This may happen a few times, one after the other. I'm really at a loss as how to exactly describe what's going on as my technical knowledge of monitors is minimal.

    I have the latest XP supported NVidia drivers for my Geforce2 GTS, and to my knowledge the PC is running as stable as it did under Windows 2000 Pro. I also have default refresh set to 85Hz, which this monitor supports.

    I'm not sure what's going on, but could these be tell-tale signs a new monitor might be on the list?

    Thanks for your time.

    My monitor keeps changing its size to. Then I have to adjust the <-- --> controls on the monitor to make it bigger/smaller. My monitor is 5 1/2 years old... and it is definately starting to go.
