    Odd Video/Sound Problem

    We have two rooms where the picture on the monitor shakes when sound is played.

    Things we have checked:

    • The volume is not particularly high [so as to shake the connections]
    • The station does not have a video card.
    • We have changed the video splitter.
    • We have changed the VGA cable [PC <-> Monitor. Splitter removed from the loop]
    • It is not the projector [as it happens even when the projector is off/disconnected]


    What else can I try/Anyone else had this/cured it?

    Thanks.

    Thanks.

    I will check how we are connected in the affected rooms next week [there seem to be lots of options]

    Strange thing is we have rooms with identical setups that are not affected at all.
