    *snap*... Sudden screen "adjustment"?

    Hello,

    If it sounded like a sharp "snap" that corresponded with the screen becoming smaller for a moment and then returning to normal, it was probably an electrical short ("arch") within the CRT.

    This is a fairly common problem with CRTs and usually indicates that trouble is in your monitor's future. However, I've got a Radius 19" that's done that about once a week for well over 2 years. It's a little scary, but it hasn't failed yet.
