I inherited a monitor from some friends. A Philips Brilliance 17A - model 17a280bq/77c (Chassis - cm3800)
After much fiddling, I just can't seem to get the settings right. I've tried finding alternate drivers without much luck.
Basically, everything seems to have shaddows. Its really noticable on text. I've tried changing screen size and refresh rates (now I'm on 1024 x 768 at 60hz - 32 bit colour)
If I go back to 800X600 it's better, but you can still see the shaddows. 60 Hz seems the best rate too.
I've tried degaussing, but that didn't do much at all.
My vid card is an FX5200 with the latest version of the driver they had on windows update most recently.
Anyone know how to fix it, where I might find a decent driver for the monitor or a good place to look for help?

I've had this problem in the past when working with a KVM (Keyboard, Video, Monitor) switch. In that case, it was related to the cable that I was using for the monitor.

Is this a monitor where you can easily switch out the cable? If not, you may want to take it to a repair shop and see what they think - maybe they can swap the cable for you for a small fee.

Willful ignorance of science is not commendable. Refusing to learn the difference between a credible source and a shill is criminally stupid.

I like GMail...and it's really easy to use, but my only qualm is a very, very minor one: there's no way to customize the look. I don't particularily care for the colour scheme...but then again, that's just me :-)
