Solution to stop monitor from going crooked?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I am trying out 2 new monitors, the BenQ XL2420TE and Asus VG248QE. They are both newer 144Hz displays.
Basically my table is kind of crappy and shakes whenever I am typing on my keyboard.
Since both of these monitors have the ability to rotate to portrait mode, this results in the monitor going crooked after a few minutes and the right side is lower than the left side.
I have already tried placing each monitor on a thick cloth mousepad (QcK Heavy) but this does not fix it.
This problem has not happened before on old monitors that didn't have portrait mode.

Does anyone know a good solution for this? Getting a new desk isn't really an option at this time. I have thought about getting a different monitor stand but don't know what to look for.

Is wall mounting an option?

I'm not sure if that would work, the monitors are only 24" 1080P so I have to sit pretty close. This table I'm on is about 30" deep so I think wall mounting would probably place the monitor too far away.

I don't suppose you know your local funeral director do you?

I ask because I have a problem with my two Korean 1440p monitors in that the stands are pretty cheap and the screen would wobble. I took a pair of styrofoam body blocks, broke then in half, and stuck them under each side of the monitor. Sure it looks weird having white styrofoam blocks but the monitor doesn't move at all and the styrofoam has a give to it so it isn't hurting the monitor. After a while the monitor "cuts" into the foam a bit and it sits in there perfect.

Where do you live?

Probably not much help to you, but like I said if you know your local funeral director ask them if you can have a couple of arm rests that they get from there casket company. If they use Batesville Casket Company then ask for the ones that they have because the ones from Hoffman aren't as good.

EDIT: The caskets from Hoffman are great, their arm blocks just aren't as good. I didn't want to sound like I was talking bad about Hoffman because I love their caskets.

I live in the U.S. on the west coast. Sounds interesting but I doubt I would be able to find a local funeral director who could accommodate that request. Also I can't tell if you are trolling or being serious.

You never know if you don't ask. Funeral directors are fun, light-hearted people that like to help there communities. If you live in a small/smallish type town or have had a relative die and use a specific funeral home then I would ask.................or, you could just find some styrofoam blocks.

There are tones of different wall mounts available, you could get a one on an arm that would adjust and bring it off the wall maybe a foot and half or so.
