P1110 Blurry/dubble image

My P1110 screen works fine on my old MSI system but now on my new ASUS Mobo and Nvidia 7800GT system my screen is blurry, even tried another P1110 and it have the same problem... There doesn't seem to be any problem with other screens.. Its like the image has a shadow, a dubble vision,.. The only way to have good image is to set to 800x600 but thats not why I have a 21", is it? Can somebody help me before I have permanent eye-damage..? Thx

Re: P1110 Blurry/dubble image

I had the same problem. using my old FX5200 video card, the display was fine at any resolution. I was running through a switchbox which uses very thin video cables. When I bypassed the switchbox and run directly into the monitor, the display is fine. try switching video cables if you have a spare, the 7800 could be more sensitive to the quality of the wire used.

WHY won't it TURN ON?

If this is an old monitor then it could be shot. The other thing to check before you throw it out is to make sure all of you cables and connections are good. Substitute the cables for "new" ones and make sure that is not the problem. If your computer is old it could be the video card as well.

Dell UltraScan P1110 flat-screen monitor BLURRY?

The button you pressed is the reset button and according to the documentaton "returns the monitor to factory defaults".

Here's a link to the Dell support page for your monitor:

Regarding the lines that were orginally were trying to fix; see Damper Wires in Troubleshooting in the above documentation and you'll see that they're a fact of life with this type of monitor. I realize this may not have been your problem, but then again...

I'm surprised that the factory reset made things blurry. Usually this is the result of less than optimum settings on the display adapter in your computer rather than the monitor itself. The Trouble Shooting guide says the brightness and contrast being set too high can cause this so that may be worth checking.

I think you should check your display adapter settings after you try the Troubleshooting suggestions. On the desktop of your computer right click in an empty spot and select Properties. Click on the Settings tab and see what the resolution is. If it's not 1280x1024 you might want to try that. Everything on the screen may suddenly appear smaller so don't be surprised. I would also check the monitor frequency. This will probably be found under Advanced. Every display adapter is different so I can't tell you exactly where to look, just polk around. If you start changing things you may want to write down the original settings so you can at least get back to where you started if there's a problem.

Lastly, I want you to know I'm not paid to provide these suggestions. I know it's a strange hobby, but I like helping when I can. If you find this helpful I hope you'll take a moment and provide a positive rating. About half of the solutions I've posted have never been rated... Thanks and good luck.
