I have a Dell 8250 less than a yr old - 2.8GHZ 512K ram - with a Radeon 9700 Graphics card.
I bought seperately from monitor warehouse a Dell 21" trintron P1130.

Recently, after it has been swithced on for a while the monitor now goes totally out of focus -
looks like someone has coated the csreen de-guassing dont help.Onlt switching off then on again seems to do it - but only for a while then it does its again. Any ideas ? does the problem lie with the monitor or does it sound like the grapics card ? im half way through building a web site so this is a major problem HELP !!!

Take it back under Guarantee, or check with Sony as monitors are normally three year guarantee swap out

PS you first port of call should be where you bought it

if it is under warranty a return is your best bet as what i have in mind could invalidate any warranty.

it was bought as a " as new" from monitor warehouse - only 90 days warranty - and i bought it in April 03 - so long gone im afraid..

Woodchip is partly right as its a trinitron screen - but its badged as a Dell..

|Ive emailed monitor warehouse and awaiting a reply...
