I've got a older monitor (it's most likely pre-2000, or close to) and when I first power it on, it fragments. The cpu information and windows version screens turn choppy, and seem to move up the screen. It also emits a high pitched whistle. Both problems disappear when:
A:I turn the screen power switch off, then on,
Or B: As soon as the GUI desktop first appears.
What's the problem?
P.S. When I shut down my computer, I leave the screen power switch on and usually flip the 6-plug outlet I'm using off. (Yes, silly, I shut down the CPU first.) I've tried turning the screen switch off, and it doesn't change.
Thanks for any help you can give!
