    Ok, my ears don't really bleed, but it's pretty bad. Here's the deal-

    My monitor (INSIGNIA, what one exactly I don't know nor know how to find out) makes a horrifyingly high pitched ringing noise if I turn up the resolution too high. This occurs mainly in games, but sometimes on the desktop, too. Turning the resolution down immediately stops this. I've solved the problem, I know, but I'd like to know more about this and if there's a way to fix it as I like my games as pretty as they can get. ;D

    I've put the refresh rate down to 60hz, as that's the only fix I could think of, but the sound persists.

    Not sure if it could be related, but my video card is an ATI X850XT.

    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    It sounds like you are pushing your monitor out of range. If you are not, then you have a big issue that only a new monitor can fix.

    Maybe if you want to toss money into something that is considered disposable maybe you could get the thing fixed......maybe.

    Skivvywaver is correct, the deflection coils are resonating when pushed beyond their design limit or due to their age.

    There is nothing you really do, you need a monitor appropriate to or capable of using the settings you use.

    The above presumes it is a CRT monitor and not an LCD, which you fail to mention.
