    Quick question... I've got my monitor here at school on my desk, which has a shelf over the desk, and under that, a flouresent light.

    Well, if my monitor is on, as well as the light, i get interference. So when doing homework, i do it on my bed, b/c my light is better there.

    Well I wanna work at my desk, but not shut off the monitor, or deal with the interference... what can I do to block the intereference between the two?
    Thanks
    Pete

    I'd be surprised if there is any material that can block interferance like that. Mayby a sheet of copper? I dunno. But either way I'm sure it would be cheaper to get a regular incandesant lamp. :)

    EMI (Electromagnetic Interference) from the monitor and the flourescent light are mixing and screwing up the image on the monitor. Your best solution it to move the flourescent or buy an incandescent lamp.
