    I'm 90% sure this counts as hardware if not i apologize.

    I have a samsung SyncMaster 997DF and somethings been up with it lately. I have had my screen for close to 4 years now and its been well no problems until now the sides of the screen keep "twitching" (guess thats the closest i can relate it) and its never done this before, what does it mean? is my screen going? Thanks for the help.

    Sounds like hardware. This is a CRT monitor right? Have you tried de-gausing it? Have you made any changes to your physical desk lately?,i.e re routed wires moved your computer or anything else that may be causing electro magnetic interference (EMF).

    Try to plug in the monitor to another pc if the twitching still appear. If not then your video card maybe the problem.

    You could also try checking the plug of your monitor maybe there could only be a loose pin.
