the lettering has gone blurred on our monitor i have run tests on the graphics chip which state that it is ok.the monitor settings have not been adjusted or the dislay settings in control panel.the problem is variable somtimes not as bad as others but its not dependant on reboots just unstable all the time.its like looking at the monitor through glasses when you dont need them you can read it but its fuzzy.any ideas guys .darren
Hi darren. This is almost certainly a sign that the monitor is on it's way out. The focus is controlled by voltages on the various electrodes of the crt, and as the monitor ages these can change, especially if the cathode is losing its ability to emit electrons and you compensate by increasing the brightness.
thanks guys swapped the monitor out with a known good one and it was fine so its obviously not the adapter.have to say its gone back to normal now but would be inclined to agree its on its way out.its a work pc and tends to get left on 24\7 without a screen saver or monitor shut of.cheers darren
