Ghost Image I have two PCs, both HP Vista Home premium... Both have monitors HP w19b. Within 2 weeks of each other they started to have a ghost image to the right of the object. The ghost image is a faint shaded area. The ghost go directly to the right ...not right and down or up, just to the right of it. How do I get rid of it.

    Thank you so much, I didn't ask the original question but by simply plugging the monitor in to a different socket, away from the others and changing the position of my speakers my shadow, as explained by the poster above, has been fixed. Thank you. ewan

Mark165,
Are they both about the same age? Also have you recently added a device that is sitting near the monitors such a an external hard drive, printer, new speakers or power cord or cable next to or against the monitor cable? I sounds like EMI to me, shield the cable or plug of the offending devices into another outlet away from the monitors to test that theory, or having them on a separate surge protector should eliminate the noise you are reporting. Some go as far as adding UPS with line filtering (or conditioning) for the devices - you see it with home theater setups when the TV, computer, games and stereo are all plugged in the same outlets on the same home circuit.

    There are no electronic devices near the monitor and I reinserted the cord, all to no avail.

Double image on screen


Hello,
Usualy in these cases I check the VGA cable. If you can buy new one, but not cheap one will solve the problem. Just to be sure that this is your problem hold the small vga cable cylinders with your hands for 5-6 seconds. When you release them you shouldn't see the ghost image on your screen. It sounds weird but it works. By holding these cylinders you remove the static electricity of the cable. Try to understand what device around your monitor causes the problem. The cause also may be lot of power cables or power sources near the VGA cable.

My crt monitor has a white ghost image to the right. It looks like JPEG artifacts. I've replaced the monitor and I've tried another graphics card, but it's still there. The PC is an HP d325.


A ghost on your screen is usually caused by a second or reflection of the same image getting into your monitor, and the space between the real image ant the ghost is the delay in time or extra distance the second image travels before it is displayed on your screen. It is usually caused by a defective video cable or a cable longer than usual like 8 feet or more. Also is your monitor plugged into the same outlet as the computer, and is the case on your computer as all are possible reasons for your problem. Some times adding a ground wire from monitor to computer can correct problem. This can be a problem that takes some real detective work to find, and all I can do is suggest some possible causes.

hi,
yea you may, but make sure that you have already created a *Ghost* image of your current setup.

All you need is a bootable CD with some utilities which will help you out.

Try "hiren's Magic Disk 9.5" : it is bootable disk with proper menus and lots of utilities to make you king of your system.

This disk is usually used by System professionals (including me) :)

Instructions:
1. Boot your system with this magic disk
2. Goto Clone Disk option (Ghost disk)
3. Choose Best compression version
4. utility will start Symantec Ghost which will ask you for the source partition and destination partition for making images.
5. proceed with proper answers.
6. once the ghost imaging is complete, store this ghost image in your external storage drive
7. again boot your system with this magic disk
8. goto Partition utilties
9. Select Acronis Partition manager
10. You'll love to use this software for hard disk maintanence.

Regards,
kuldeep
