I've never had to do it manually so I don't know - my monitor has a degauss thing built in to it - I thought most new monitors did??

I think you still have to hit a button or a combo on the monitor to activate degauss... Like on mine I have to hit both contrast buttons to do it...

You could always just bring it to Best Buy, if you have one located near you, they will do it for free and it takes a total of 5 secs., you wait in line longer just to get it fixed! lol
