    If the base is wobbbly, check the rubber feet if they are still there. With additional rubber feet, you may have to prop up and fortify one side. If the display is wbbly, check if the screws holding it to the base are clean and tight. If so, and it’s still jank, you may want to consider buying a display arm mount.

    1How do I stop my monitor from shaking?

    If you’re using a standalone monitor, check the screen’s settings and power cords. Verify firm and secure connections. If anything feels loose, tighten it, and see if this solves the issue. If you have spare cables, try one of them to see if it helps with the shakiness.

    – Turn off other electrical appliances in your household that use the same electrical circuit as your computer or operate within 20 feet of it. Do this one at a time so you can track down the perpetrator if there is one. Any electronics work on frequencies that interfere with a computer screen’s performance and make up some of the most common sources of a shaky screen, particularly if the shaking is intermittent rather than continuous.
    – If you’re using an old-style cathode ray tube monitor, degauss your computer screen. The degaussing process removes built-up magnetic charge inside the monitor and can restore a shaky screen after the source of the shake is ruled out. In the onboard monitor settings, look for the degaussing controls.

You may have to make 15-20 turns depending on the weight of your monitor. After every few turns, stop to see if the monitor stays in place after you take your hand off it.

    10How long do monitor arms last?

    13Can a monitor arm break a desk?

    A monitor arm may not be suitable for a very thin desktop, say 10 mm or less. When the monitor is mounted, make sure it is balanced. You could risk injury if the desktop isn’t strong enough. The majority of commercial grade office furniture desktops with a 24 mm thickness would be fine.

    You could risk injury if the desktop isn’t strong enough.

    Commercial desktops of 12 mm thickness are usually fine, but only for single mounts.

    Clamp jaws can usually open up to 50 mm width. If your table is thicker than 50 mm, you may need to choose either a through-mount or a wall mount.

    A through-mount is where a hole is drilled in the table top and a bolt is threaded into the tabletop and the table, then tightened with a nut and washer from below the desk. A 10 mm diameter hole in the desktop is usually needed. In these situations, the old adage of “measure twice, cut once” applies.

    In general, a monitor stand is a good choice if you have a lot of desk space and don’t have to move the monitor around often, or if you work more with a notebook.
