Have you tried to substitute another monitor to confirm it is the PC and not the monitor?  If yes  then:

Start by check the video card and drivers. Take it out and reinsert it .Reinstall softwae and drivers.  Another option: Restore computer to a time before the problem started.

I have a lg flat screen monitor, the words are blurred


Is it just the fonts that are blurry, or everything? If fonts only, then this almost certainly suggests that running the ClearType tuner again would solve the problem. But this applies to all displays, so if one is good and the other is not, then this isn't it.

If everything is a little blurry, then this suggests one of two problems -- the first, you report trying, which is that the display adapter is set to a different resolution than the native resolution of the LCD monitor itself. Your display adapter should probably be able to drive 2 monitors (the built-in laptop monitor and the external monitor) at once. You should be able to set their resolutions separately.

Assuming Windows XP: Start > Control Panel > Display > Settings > at which point, you should see two monitors listed in a dropdown. Set them to their native resolutions there (using the slider bar, usually all the way to the right), and save.

If you do have the display resolutions set to their native resolutions for both monitors, then it's possible that your external monitor is messed up. A quick test would be to run the on-screen settings, usually from a button on the monitor itself. If what is displayed there is sharp and what is displayed from Windows is not, then this points to a problem with the display driver. If everything, even the on-screen display is blurry, then perhaps the monitor settings are messed up -- usually there's an option to restore to factory settings -- try that.

Computer screen hangs then i restart it but suddenly green light just blink and no picture on screen appear/blank and it keeps on "tot-tot-tot" ....


This sounds like either the capacitors are failing in the unit, or if you can hold a flashlight to see a very faint shadow of whatever is supposed to be on the screen then it needs a new backlight.

Everything on the screen is blurry... not unreadable, but almost like there is a shadow behind everything.


[u][b]LCD Monitor Shadow Effect[/b][/u]
This problem is best described as the LCD monitor "Shadow Effect".
The solution to this very simple. No software or hard ware changes required.
The cables that are connected to the LCD monitors are causing the problem. Its also called as electromagnetic noise or electrical noise.
[u][b]Solution: [/b][/u]Keep the two cables - (power cable and moitor display cable), that are connected to the LCD monitor as far away as possible with each other and also away from other electrical cables.
Thats it. Your shadow effect is fixed.
Thank you.

Grey bands and shadowing


Uninstall the video driver from the Computer, restart the Computer then reinstall it. Furthermore, check for any updates for the video drivers.

You may also connect the monitor to any other normally functioning Computer to check if the lines remain there.

If it's so then the monitor requires servicing.

Monitor Picture is Blurry because of shadows


If you've already checked all your cable connections, to make sure they're tight, check your windows settings: Go to Start>rt click My computer, choose properties, settings on performance, and choose adjust for best performance. (This will uncheck the shadow options for menus and icons, etc.) Take a look at your desktop. Is that better? If so, you might want to do some maintenance to improve your system performance by clicking here.
If no improvement, download or open the .pdf user guide for your monitor by clicking here. See pages 22, 17, and 12. They will show you how to use the auto button on the monitor to reset to optimal settings, to adjust the refresh rate (control panel>display>settings>advanced) to its optimum. (Normally, higher refresh rates indicate clearer pictures, but some LCD monitors seem to run better at a default 60hz rate. Check your Gateway documentation for your graphics adapter to see what it supports, (your monitor supports 60, 70, & 75), or experiment.)
If adjusting settings doesn't improve anything, you could search for updated drivers for your graphics adapter. Go to windows update and see if you're offered hardware updates, or search Gateway support for newer drivers.
Not many options left. See here.You could take it in to a local tech and have them take a quick look.( or try it on another computer).
If it's on its way to a sad end, I'm sorry. We have the same monitor at home and it's been great. Aside from a scratch someone put in it years back, it provides very clear resolution.

Monitor display is blurry, with shadows and waves next to text


Jnanda,
Could be one of two related situations both have to do with built up magnetic flux:

!. If you have used the monitor for a significant amount of time and have never degaussed it that might be it.

To fix: Go to where your monitor's controls are (eg screen size/position, Brightness, Contrast, etc.). Providing that we are referring to an older style monitor (like a TV) and not a flat screen, you should find a degaussing button located there. This button is marked with a depiction of a horseshoe magnet. Press it.

If you have on screen settings control, hit the menu button and select the icon that looks like a horseshoe magnet.

You'll hear a buzz and the screen will go kooky for a moment.

You're then degaussed. Your problem should go away.

2. You may have moved the monitor close to a source of electromagnetic interference (or vice-versa) this will also cause that sort of thing you describe (remember that there are electrical lines in the walls (another source of EMI)

In that case move the monitor away from the EMI source or move the EMI source away from the monitor.

Remember that it could be both 1 and 2. So if the problem lessens but does not go away fully try both steps.

Problem with monitor


Shadow after text is usually caused by an impedence or termination issue. If you have a multimeter, check the VGA connector pins 1 2 3 (R G B) vs GND should be 75 ohms. If not, cable is damaged or poor quality. Try a new VGA cable, should cost $5+
If the edge of the text is wavy, there is too much jitter in the signals coming from the graphics chips. No fix possible.
If the edges of the characters are lumpy, then the panel has a cheap A/D converter, try using it in DVI mode instead (white-white connectors instead of blue).
