Shadows on Samsung 204B monitor

  Sapins 09:37 30 May 2009

There is a Black shadow down the left hand side of the monitor fading into the screen after about 10cm. All other lines in all windows e.g. Outlook Express, all web sites and icons on the desktop have these shadows. There are also faint white lines scrolling up the screen. I have just replaced the graphics card because of a display problem, background colour kept changing to Yellow. The problem with the shadows was intermittently present before the new card and it is now present in all windows including the log on and welcome screens where there is a small white "cloud" in the top left hand corner as well as the shadow down the screen.

I am using XP SP3.

Can you try another monitor to see if the fault is still there?

I don't have another monitor.

Or any possibility of trying the monitor on a friends PC?

Failing which, I would take the monitor into your nearest PC shop and ask if they could test it.

may be possible to take it to a friend.

I am trying to put a Gadwin screenshot in my post to show the problem, no luck up to now!

I assume you have already tried all the settings in Magic-tune?

I have just switched off and re-inserted the cable from the monitor and pushed in the graphics card, switched back on and everything is OK!!

Many thanks for your help Technotiger, your link to posting screen shots will come in handy as well,
