Time for a new monitor?

330 4
I have an old Gateway EV700 monitor, it's been working good, but I think it's starting to wear out. Occasionally, I have heard a high pitched noise coming from my monitor, usually when I had it at high resolutions. But now that noise is almost always audible, regardless of the resolution (A good whack on the side usually stops it for a bit). I didn't mind it before but now it's starting to get really annoying! I'm just wondering if this noise is normal or if it's near death?

When you turn it on, does the screen jiggle funny? The noise means its old, but it shouldnt die on you yet. If you have money, you should get one know, If you don't it can wait a bit.
