Windows 7: cold cathode rod

cold cathode rod

hi, my name is chris. i have recently placed a set of 2 300mm blue cold cathode lighting rods in my computer.

relatively simple installation. the rods have been in storage for about 2 - 3 years. this is the first time i have used them.

The first rod is placed horizontally. The second is placed Vertically.

my problem:- At first they are antastic. But after about 5-10 minutes there are spiralling pulses from the base (where the wires attach) all the way to the end. Only one way. If i switch the Rods off then on whilst the computer is still on the rods are normal again.

can anybody give me some advice?

The normal problem with cold cathodes are that they are cheaply made. This could be just a sign of age
