fuzzy/blurry screen

Wonder if anyone know solution to this problem. My pc screen is ok but after about 3 mins after connecting to internet (not everytime but about 2out of 3) the text/icons on screen start blurring up and moving the mouse just makes drag marks along the screen. Eventually all screen becomes unreadable and itonly rights itself if I reboot. Any ideas, anyone, it is driving me mad.

in addition i have now found out it is only on certain sites - especially games

How long have you had the monitor? It seems to me that it`s going soft, i.e near the end of it`s useful life. The strange thing is that it`s happening to mine too but fortunately for me I`ve got another one handy. If you can get another on loan or whatever try it out and hopefully it`ll be ok.

The monitor is less than a year old but tested another and the same thing happens - it seems to be related to when I access certain pages on the internet but it also then affects all my desk top items not just internet pages

Sounds a bit like your graphics card is playing up. Can you pull it out and re-seat it ?

A CRT looks basically like a telly, it has a cathode ray tube in it, hence the CRT click here. TFTs are the newer flat panel monitors like this click here
