Default Freaking me out...

So after some work trying to get my monitor to stop rattling when I listen to music (which turned out to be my stupid keyboard), including hitting the monitor gently here and there, all of the sudden it starts to pop.

Im just sitting here doing nothing and it POPS, not really loud or too quiet...just pops...

rattle around both the power cable and monitor cable on the back and see if that makes the sound appear.

I know TVs pop when the picture tube is getting ready to kick the can. This doesn't sound good.
