Hello, I am currently using Windows Xp Home Edition and I am having a problem with my Princeton monitor.. Sometimes for no reason it will expand so that I have to go into the monitor options and shrink it back down.. Then after a period of time (ranging from 5 minutes to 5 hours) it will shrink back down and I have to fit it back to the screen. I am currently running on 1024x768. I have installed the newest drivers and that did not help.

Assuming a CRT monitor:

If the whole picture "expands" and "contracts", then you should suspect the EHT circuitry in the monitor.

If the EHT (normally about 25,000 volts) goes low, the electron beam spends longer in the deflection field as it travels slower, and gets deflected further. The result is an enlarged display area.

Not a "user serviceable" issue unless you have extra-high-voltage (EHT) test gear and are experienced.

So, basically I need a new monitor? And if so, do you know any good flat screen monitors mainly for online gaming?
