Monitor displaying shadows

  NOVICE ENABLED 20:05 26 Sep 05

Very irritating. All graphics, characters & the cursor have shadows (4 faint lines) to the right hand side. The whole screen also has a vertical shadow on the LEFT hand side. This occurs in all display settings. I've reinstalled Nvidia display driver but no change. Also, the screen will occasionally lose it's colour, as if looking through a pair of sun glasses, before and flickering back to life. Any ideas?

Sounds like the VDU is about to die....

I agree with mattyc_92 it's likely the monitor. Check by trying it on a friends system

If not, then either a faulty cable or graphics card.

One thing - you haven't got a monitor cable extender have you? - poor quality and/or overlong cables can cause similar faults.

Checked for loose connections and the flickering problem seems to have stopped. I think it was the large group of cables that go to the main board. Still got the ghosts though.

I'll try the monitor on my brothers system and take it from there.

Thanks DieSse and mattyc_92
