Now something very strange has happened. I added an HP touchscreen monitor to the laptop interfacing with the Arduino. That is, the Arduino is connected to the laptop, and the monitor is also connected to the laptop.When the touchscreen monitor is connected, range on the RFID reader drops to almost nothing. By experimentation, the RFID range dies when:1) The touchscreen monitor is plugged in, and...

Actually now I think about it some RFID stuff is very low frequency like 27MHz isn't it?
