    Set it to measure current/amps/A/mA/whatever it's labeled on your meter. This will also require putting the positive probe in a different jack on most meters. If your meter doesn't have such a...

    Unless things have changed over the years, you're likely to get more advice than you bargained for. There are plenty of folks from whom the only "tip" you'll get is "buy a dc-dc power supply."

    Assuming there isn't anything wrong with your power supply, you're suffering from a poor power connection. You're measuring sufficient voltage at the battery, which is good, but I think that you'll...

    It varies dramatically between different components. The only measurement I recall was an old nforce2 board that weighed in at 900mA at 5v, which is probably more like 500mA at 12v after linear...

    That would depend on how long the psu will wait before turning on the amp. Probably not more than a few seconds, so I doubt it will get you the result you're looking for. It wouldn't hurt, though.

    And don't blame the folks who taught you the positive to negative flow. Sometimes you do have to think of it that way. In fact, at any given time, you may need to be using one or more of three...

    You are correct - these grounds are all supposed to be separate. However, this does not normally cause problems at lower resolutions and refresh rates. While it certainly isn't helping matters, you...

    It would be helpful if you could begin unplugging things one by one and determine when the whine stops, then try to plug everything else back in to isolate the one component which causes it.

    Not very likely. Probably in 9 out of 10 cases where someone thinks they have an "interference" problem, it's not interference at all but rather a case of mismatched grounds.

    Interference usually manifests itself as either color shift or bleed, or random lines on the screen. What you describe sounds more like the monitor not wanting to stay synced on the signal. Try...

    You have a few options, but I'd say the easiest one is to repair the cable or replace it with something else. I like cat5 cable for stuff like this. If you'd rather leave the ribbon cable, use a...
