DearWebby is actually Helmut Morscher, the CEO of Webby, inc.

Originally the "Tech Support Pits" were reports of the funniest tech support incidents, but over the years the column gradually shifted to answering tech support questions put forward by the readers of the Dear Webby Humor Letter.

This collection of computer and web advice was started partly because readers demanded an archive, and partly because some questions were asked again and again. Each page has a different day's Tech Support Pits column.

Have FUN!

08/24/04: Monitor flicker

Tech Support Pits:
From Mara=== Dear Webby, My new 19" monitor has a faint flicker. It's not visible right in the center, I notice it most when I don't look directly at it. Should I exchange the monitor while it is still under warranty, or do I have to learn to live with it? Mara Dear Mara That is just the vertical sync setting of the monitor. It is probably set at 60, the same rate at which your fluorescent lights flicker. Find the controls on the monitor. Nowadays that's just three buttons. One of the many settings that you can change is called "Vertical Sync". Change that to as far away from 60 as you can go. Personally, I find 73 the most comfortable setting. Have FUN Dear Webby
