'[OT]: Disapointed with new LCD monitor'

Finally splurged and bought a 17" LCD monitor. But very disappointed in text image.

Text is a little blurred, and has ghost. Not easy to read. Black text on white background is bad, but worst is black text on gray background.

Installed latest drivers for my GeForce2 MX400 video card, no help. Tried just about every adjustment.

Any ideas?

John

If it's ghosting, it could be a poor quality cable, causing reflections. Also check the fine phase and width adjustments. if the monitor's physical resolution is different to what you've set your card to, it will never be
perfect. Ideally you want to use a DVI link, so it's digital all the way - with a VGA cable, you're
converting to analogue on the card, and then back to digital in the monitor, and this will always
compromise quality.

Does your MX400 have a DVI connector and if so are you using it, or are you
using the normal analog video connector? Are you using a good quality cable
between the LCD dipaly and the Geforce?

Very good point.  I'd go further and say "totaly unacceptable" quality going
by the 15" displays we have here in work.  I guess the native resoltuion of
a 17" panel will be 1280x1024.

Regards

Mike

       Sounds like you're running it through an analog connection. Personally I
wouldn't even touch an LCD display unless it were connected to my system
through the digital port. That being said, it could simply be a bad cable
connection. Try a different or shorter cable. TTYL

Either that or the resolution that he has the computer set to doesn't
match the native resolution of the monitor.

I'm using a Hitachi 17" LCD monitor here at work and it is quite good.
The wires on Protel schematic bend down a pixel sometimes, but otherwise
ok.

I'm using 1280 X 1024 setting.

After comparing with a standard monitor again, I don't think I will go
back.

       Typically I've never seen a resolution mismatch create ghosting, more often
it just creates blotchiness. TTYL

Quality varies BUT this sounds broken.
Can you view same text on another example?

Run with shortest cable to start - certainly no switch boxes or extender
leads while you are checking quality.

Resolution changing will have some affect but on text I would have expected
adequate performance.

What brand & model?

I bet you are using a analog cable between gfx card and monitor.
If you card has CRT interface, use it, if not, get better cable.

I'm assuming there was no ghosting with a regular monitor?  If certian
components fail on the video card you'll get severe ghosting.

Make sure the monitor is connected directly to the card (no monitor
switch box, extension cables, etc).

Set the resolution to 1280x1024

Set the refresh rate to 60Hz

Use the auto-setup button or setting on the LCD

Don't buy cheap LCD monitors.
