Acer 23' led clicking

I bought an acer 23' led a few months ago. I heard a clicking sound coming from my computer area and wondered what it was I thought it was my pc until I listened closely and realized it was my monitor. The clicking didn't used to bother me but not it clicks every few seconds. To remedy the problem I unplugged the monitor but it is still clicking! I left it sit overnight and this morning it still is clicking. Now I am frustrated and maybe someone on this forum has a suggestion or solution?

So your monitor clicks even when the power cord is disconnected?

It's most likely not the monitor clicking then, but something behind it?

The Dell ones would be the best, I think. You can get cheaper IPS screens (talking sub-$200) but I dont think performance is great.

Yep, I almost bought one, but waited and bought one of the korean 27" IPS screens. Couldnt be happier. The Dell was the second/budget pick in my list however. Justmake sure it's an IPS model... I cant remember the model name by heart.

Do ALOT of reading before pulling the trigger. I picked this specific monitor only because of the price (cheapest of all). The OP of that thread has a link to the OCN thread with alot of discussion going about these monitors. You give up alot of features (like the OSD, you only have dual-link DVI, my model has no speakers, cheap stand but VESA-compatible, etc) and get an increase in risk of getting a screen with defects (due to the unit traveling the whole planet or so, and the panels being "reject"/A- batches from Apple and Dell monitors) but the quality of the screen is worth it IMO.

I almost bought one of the Dell IPS panels but settled with one of the Korean panels at the last minute because I wanted something bigger, and I didnt need HDMI or anything else.
