I have a 19 inch LCD monitor and just suddenly the picture has begun to shake. The picture just flies vertically up and down my monitor. It gets to the point where I can even see anything. It happened before but then I hit a button on the monitor (I think degauss but im not sure, I can't remember) and it fixed it. Well it is back again and I tried pretty much every combinatin of buttons on my monitor. Any suggestions?

Is it possible to borrow another monitor to see if it's the monitor, or the video card? Another option is to go to the monitor manufacturers website and check for an owners manual, if you don't have one. And see what options you have to troubleshoot. You may also see if there is online support to ask questions. hth

Degauss an LCD monitor? No way. Degaussing is getting rid of magnetism that builds up in a CRT monitor tube and degrades the picture. There is no equivalent in LCD monitors that I'm aware of.

Just unplug and replug the monitor cable from the video card a few times, and see if you can do the same thing at the monitor end (LCD monitor cables are usually detachable) it may just be poor contact on one of the connector pins.
