Ghosting effect could be down to incorrect Frame Rate, or could be due to Video card. I guess this is more obvious when playing games!

It might help others to help you, if you could provide answers to the following ...

Monitor Type/Make/Model ?
What OS ?
Desktop or Laptop ?
Is the ghosting showing all the time ?
If not all the time, what is being done (games or other) when ghosting occurs ?
Using Mouse or Joystick/Pad ?
Does it happen for instance when using Word or similar, or when using email program ?

and any other relevant information you can think of!

Hmm, this is an extract from a Review of that monitor, and from this it would seem that some ghosting is to be expected ...

"Fortunately, contrast was handled better in our game and film tests. There was still slightly less detail in dark areas than we would have liked, but it wasn't too problematic. Ghosting was minimal, which should be expected considering the low response time, and the sharpness and colour accuracy seen in previous tests were again evident here. Black levels were quite good, although not the best we've seen."
