Question ViewSonic A75f on Mandrake/RedHat

I have a ViewSonic A75f monitor running on Mandrake 9.1 and Windows 2000 Pro. Before, I had RedHat 8.0 dual-booting with Windows XP Pro. On RedHat and Mandrake, the monitor gave me this low-pitched, screeching noise. It seems to let out the noise every time I turn the monitor on after turning it off (or Linux turning it off), and at the same time, it gives the noise while I'm on the computer whatever I'm doing. It doesn't happen in Windows, just on Linux. My bro has the same, *exact* monitor and his Mandrake nor Windows gives him no problems whatsoever. I'm guessing it may be a bad pin or something, but that would produce a noise in Windows too (I'll check that out when I get home)... can't be the driver, bro has the same one... can't be Windows, he's dual-booting too... The noise happens almost completely randomnly and lasts for about 5 minutes or more at times. Urgh, irritating. Anyone have an idea of what it is? Maybe the refresh rate? Got to go to class. Thanks in advance.
