i recently bought a 32 inch lcdtv n decided it was time i upgrade to vista aswell. upgraded and apart from the adjusting to a new os and the occasional minor problem everything has been fine. however now when i lock my computer and turn my screen off i'll turn it back on and it'll be all fuzzy n shakey. it seems to cure itself eventually but only after awhile (not talking seconds here). i did my research b4 i brought a monitor so i don't believe its at fault (i got a samsung, brand new from noel leeming which has turned out excellent). don't get me wrong i'm not talking about the screen flickering either as some screens do because of their refresh rate, the pixels r literally moving around. i'm running vista ultimate on a athlon64 dual core 4200 with 2gb ram and a radeon x850xt platinum edition. my drivers have also recently been updated so i don't believe that could be the issue either. any help would be widely appreciated as i can't find jack via google. thanx Wink

hmmm i have had heaps of shakey screens, but normally about 2 - 5 seconds worth.

My current DSE 19 wide also looks extremely pink for first few seconds.

I'm getting the same thing on a 3 year old IBM ThinkPad, it shakes like a CRT with cell phone inteference but eventually goes away, I'm running Windows XP and it only started happening in the last few weeks
