Monitor acting strange

    Hello everybody.

    Whenever I use my computer (XP Pro SP2) after a while that it has been
    off, everything works fine, but sometines, when I open a new program
    that starts maximized, the image in the monitor streches all four
    corners and then contracts again to the regular size. This happens for
    no apparent reason and it doesnt depend on the program.

    The monitor in question is a 21 inch Dell Trinitron Ultrascan P1110.

    Has anybody seen similiar behavior? Does anybody know a solution.

    Thanks in advance,
    -Dan

    Could be a sign the HV to the screen inside the monitor is
    weakening.....that is, if you are sure it does it at different refresh
    rates?

    Raster size on monitors can shift in size, if there are high voltage or
    power supply regulation problems. These types of fault conditions will show
    more with changes of brightness, and or with different resolution modes.
