I bought a Haans-G HZ201 monitor last week at Newegg during their Black Friday sales. It just came on Friday and my parents suggested that I test it out on my laptop to see if there's anything abnormal.

Things I saw/heard/tried:

  • After the screen turns off for idling more than 20 mins, chances are that it'll show nothing but a black flickering screen. I have to set the resolution to something lower like 1024 x 768 or 800 x 600 and then set it back up to 1600 x 900 for it to work again
  • There's a slight buzzing sound coming out of it (It's not from the built in speakers)
  • Auto adjusting the monitor doesn't work

Laptop specs (HDX16-1155CA):

  • Intel P7450 2.13 GHz
  • 4 GB DDR2 RAM
  • Dedicated 9600M GT 512 MB
  • The desktop is extended to both monitors
  • The monitor is connected via VGA port

Is the video port on your laptop known good? You don't see behavior like this with another display? – Mark Johnson Dec 4 '11 at 5:20
    
Yes the port works well. I tried my parents' old Benq and it works very well too, and it doesn't make any sort of buzzing sounds either – Alex Dec 4 '11 at 5:26

Check the one egg reviews. Sounds like you've got a lemon. Newegg will take care of you since it's only been a week, get that RMA opened.
