there is a faint constant noise in the display, kind of like static on a tv. i have no idea what caused this, and nothing has been posted in these forums about this (from what i found). any help would be greatly appreciated.

im running:

windows xp home edition
GeForce 7300 GS
Asus A8N5X motherboard
AMD Athlon 64 X2 dual core 4200+

Hi. Let's be careful with this... It could be that your screen has fried... How old is it? If you smell smoke, or anything burning, disconnect the power to the monitor at once! Do you have another monitor you can try? I'm not saying that this is for sure a hardware problem, but you should take caution anyway. Try that monitor on another computer if you can, and see how things work...

its not old at all. maybe you misunderstood... i didnt mean sound noise, i meant visual noise.

i tried your suggestion anyway, just to be sure it wasnt the monitor. i plugged my roommate's monitor in and it had the same problem, so it is likely due to the graphics card. one of my roommates suggested that it could be a driver problem, since i didnt install the driver that came with the card, but a driver offered on the nvidia website.
