is hissing wut u described as like the sound a snake makes? or is it a constant beep that jus goes on without breaks. my tv was making that constant beep and the frequency of that sound was pretty high, my dad couldnt hear it. when i get pissed i jus slap the tv and sometimes it would go away, but it always come back

A new monitor is needed, or a service repair. Does the screen do anything whilst squealing like a banshee?

The sound you describe is indicative of a failure (not now but going to happen soon) of the high voltage section. Either a filter cap or the flyback transformer. It's not cost effective to repair. Used monitors crt types can be had from building/repair shops for $20.00 and up. Depends on how old and what size you want.

No offence, but used monitors (especially refurbished) are likely to suffer the same fate sooner or later.

Well, duh. If you don't use a monitor, it's not going to break, but there's not much point in buying a monitor if you're not going to use it.
