Samsung SyncMaster 172T - Blurry Screen

  big kev 21:41 22 Sep 2003

I've just purchased the above monitor and was extremely impressed, until I started playing a couple of games, FIFA 2003 and Rugby 2004, when I noticed the blurry screen.

I then noticed the screen went blurry when I moved a web page up and down.

The manual isn't very helpful, neither is their website.

Anyone have any ideas, I hope there's a simple solution.

im assuming the monitors a tft as i cant be bothered looking . if it is this would be down to a slow access time . ive seen this on my mums monitor as she payed £150 for it (6 mnths ago), and it shows . the time on mine is between 25-30ms and have never had it .

im assuming that its plug and play . what graphics card do you have , and which drivers are you using ? as ive just today tried the latest fron nvidia 45 something and they altered the size of image on screen and short of shrinking the screen down manually for just 2 ea games there was nothing i could do but reinstall old drivers .
