Acer LCD black/red text

  v1asco 22:16 09 Feb 2007

Some of the text on my AL1916W screen shows black text with a red shadow.

This is not always in the same spot and completely random.

The screen has been set up on auto as per instructions and if I zoom in it dissapears.

I believe the specs are reasonable click here

It is less than a week old and everything else is perfect.

This is only a very minor irritation and I am wondering if its common throughout LCD screens.

Thanks in advance.

Turn off clear type or , see if your monitor supports any other refresh other than what it is on already , but it is usually clear type , right click on desktop , select properties , select tab for appearance , then click on effects , change the " Use the following method etc. box to Standard . Similar for Vista , only right click , personalise , Windows colour and appearance , then click on " open classic properties and do the same .

It sounds a bit like when Crt type Monitor Convergence is not setup
