    Only ever had that problem once, on an old CRT, it died shortly after.

    RIP old monitor.

    When you play CS do you use a different resolution to that of your desktop ?

    I found when mine was about to go, if I changed the res it would cure it for a short time, but it was a matter of weeks only.

    Sounds like the caps are about to blow.

    Yeah, this happened to me on a CRT which expired about a month down the line. Try changing resolutions to make the pitch higher/lower so that it's not so annoying.
