It could be an image 'burnt' on to the monitor.

If you have had one image on the computer screen for a long time it can cause it to burn onto the c=screen and it can cause a shodow effect.

Before you buy a new monitor i would surgest taht you try to borrow one before spending money.

+ if they shadows are moving it can be due to interferance (usually fuzzy lines) try moving the computer.

If the shadows stay in the same place most likely is screen burn

also check you Graphics display to be 75Hz, 800x600 or 1024x768 also 32Bit colour.

Then look at your driver, what type of graphics have you got ?
