    Mah comp screen is shimmering ><

    Anyone know how to fix a shimmering comp screen? I had it on sleep mode and whne I started it again it began to shimmer and now it does it everytim I start it. The shimmering stops after a while but its still very annoying. Any suggestions on what to do?

    really sounds like there is some magnetic field nearby, yes. check around for anything that could interfere.
    In case that doesnt work, the screen might have to go through a professional examination.

    Try the degauss option on your monitor menu. It either says degauss or has a picture of a magnet.

    I dont think its a magnet problem because, well, the shimmering stops on its own. I might have to call someone but thx for the replies. Ill try that menu thing.

    It removes any magnetism that has build up in the monitor.
