I have the latest drivers for the monitor also for my video card, have also updated my motherboard chipset drivers. also running the native resloution on the monitor, which is 1680 x 1250. my system is as follows;
Cpu - P4 3.06 533 FSB

    Re: Clarification Request, Yes I have tried a new video card. The video card that I`m using now is a upgrade to try to fix my ghosting problem. It didn`t help. I have tried varies setting on this card and doesn`t make any difference with ghosting problem. Anti-aliasing settings are at application controlled and Refresh rate is set at 60hz, the recommended setting for LCD monitors, but I have tried up to 75hz.

    Reply to Fix-4U,

    I`m not sure what you mean by resetting my WB. I looked through the settings on my video card and my monitor and didn`t see anything like WB. Could you explain where to find this setting and how to reset it,

    Reply to Fix-4U,

    I have been through every setting on my monitor, including the color menu and there is not a setting or adjustment for white or white balance. Also this is a new monitor, about 6 weeks old and it has had this ghosting problem from the day that I got it. Thats why I replaced my video card and my power supply, thinking that they were the problem. Also my original video card would not support the monitors native resolution of 1680 x 1050. I guess my only option is to return the monitor as defective or send back to Acer for a warranty repair.

It's seems you need to reset your WB (white blance). Open your on screen display and look for WB settings... Good lucks!

    You're not listening...The Nvidia Card had nothing to do with it....Your Monitor need to reset the White balance. Open up your on screen display on your LCD monitor and look for the WB settings and reset the white balance... That will get ridoff the ghosting.....effect!

    Well, in your on screen display... look for a color palette. open the color menu and see if there a white blance there. Every monitor on screen display is different. If no lucks! Just replaced a new a AD board.

Westinghouse LCM-22W2 has "ghosting"

Usually, LCD monitor ghosting appears when the cable isn't tight, the cable is faulty, or low quality. The cable should be less than 8-10 feet long. Try using a different monitor cable (they're mostly interchangable) and see if the problem goes away. I'd put my money on the cable or a loose cable connection.

Hi There! My Acer x223w monitor is floating a "Input Not Supported" box that will not go away any suggestions?

The documentation for this monitor should list its supported resolutions, and you will need to attach another monitor that supports a greater (possibly lower or higher) range of resolutions and then set it to one of the supported resolutions for the monitor. The native resolution appears to be 1680x1050, although I cannot find online documentation directly from Acer.
