Beep from computer monitor, what gives?

Been getting a low level butr rather tiresome noise from one of my 2 computer screens.

It is in the 3 kHz region and is therefore even more of a bother.

Has anyone had this?

I lifted the ground on them both, having been told that it was a way to loose the "hum", beep, whatever...but it stayed. Is there a way to hook up a transformer or two, to isolate them completely?

Please help

Did you try adjusting the monitor's refresh rate? Some displays will emit all sorts of weird hum and hiss when used at refresh rate freqs that they don't like.
