I've done that before, and I had to make it magnitised equally around the whole screen, but just try moving the wigger noise devices and see if it clears up on its own...

You can get the same effect from a telephone... bring yoru normal phone near the monitor, take it off the hook and it'll cause a small reaction...

check in the monitor settings, where you have tint, vhold can change the screen size and all that stuff maybe its in a panel on your monitor or buttons on the front to see if theres something called "degauss". It will reset the polarity in the coil around the tube. If it doesent you can always just grab a magnet and try to do it by hand if it doesent eventually wear off, but you could just fuck it up even more if you dont know what your doing.

no, that wont do. if your monitor has the option, degauss it, that will reset all the electron guns. if not, just put a magnet near your monitor and like drag the spot away, like into a corner. itll disappear after a few times.
