LCD screen with distorted text

  EKj 10:11 22 Jun 2010

Hi, greetings from South Africa.

I have a FLATRON L1292WS LCD screen as main monitor and Samsung SyncMaster 173v as secondary running off a Nvidia GeForce 8600 GT display adapter on Win7.

The graphics on the SyncMaster is excellent but i have to keep adjustig the colour on the Flatron as i get a black shaddow on the right of the text, pictures are either black or not properly displayed.

I am desperate as i have tried everything from calibrating, resetting, re-installing the display drivers and swearing at the monitor. Nothing works.

Can you please advise me what to do ?

With thanks

probably nothing to do with it, but having had a similar problem I found that the monitor connection was loose..tightening both ends fixed the problem.

thanks, i've tried all the connections, they are all ok.
