    What would cause a monitor to start buzzing loudly only when I'm viewing this site?

    Might be a problem with your monitor rather than the site. There's nothing on the site that would cause that kind of a reaction from your hardware.

    But it only does it on this site/forum. That's the odd thing about it.

    We have nothing on this site that would cause any monitor or screen to "buzz". If your monitor is making a buzzing noise, regardless of when it happens, it is likely a direct issue with the monitor.

    Well I'm baffled then.

    Thanks for the help.

    If you really want to break it down, at the end of the day you have a monitor issue. There's a good possibility that the color scheme we use is exploiting the hardware malfunction in your monitor, thus causing you to notice it (ie: gray tones instead of white like most sites use).

    The humming/buzzing sound is most likely due to an actual screen issue, ie: there's too much juice being pulled to the led/lcd screen thus causing a feedback or "humming/buzzing" sound. But as the others have stated, there's absolutely no way that a website can break your monitor. Unless it's two girls one cup ... but that'll break your soul first.
