Re: some letters on monitor are fading out

Some letters on monitor are fading out if there is no problem with card then it is due to monitor high voltage section failure. 1 there should be proper output from power supply. 2 focus control on flyback to be set. 3 crt base loose 4 or focus wire going to crt base not properly connected due to some foreign material deposited on it. 5 at last if monitor is old there is a possibility of crt getting weak.

Have a Acer x223w monitor and it fades to white and then fade to black. I looked at the caps and nothing look blown on both boards. When I turn on the monitor the acer pops up and no signal look fine. But...

Have you verified that the problem is indeed your monitor and not the video card on your PC? i would start by connecting the monitor to a laptop or another PC to verify that the same issue occurs no matter what the source. Once you've verified that, you're likely dealing with a monitor that requires repair or replacement. Hopefully it's under warranty. Hope this helps a bit.

check for the specifications of your PC's video card with the screen.
problem maybe at something else rather than the monitor.

I can not find the correct drivers to configure my dell ultrasharp 1504fp. Only showing low resolution 4 bit and does not allow any other monitors other than default.

Are you sure that your problem is with the monitor drivers? Usually when graphics card drivers are correctly installed, the monitor is recognized as "Plug and Play monitor" and this is completely sufficient, as the monitor is able to communicate it's supported resolutions and refresh frequencies to the video card.
Look for an updated graphics driver for your system - first you have to establish what type of graphics card you have, then find drivers for it.

Flatron w2043s 20" there is distortion on all letters and numbers etc, its as if its ran out of ink ,spoils the picture big time

The distortion mostly is caused by a wrong screen resolution. Choose another (smaller or larger) resolution and once you've found the correct resolution for your display card tne distortion will be gone.

Dell 1702FP 17" shows nothing after Radeon HD 2600 put in.

Is the card plugged into the (PCI/AGP) slot correctly? Did you disable the onboard video in the bios? Also be sure to check in windows device manager and check for the graphics card to appear there.

Lack of contrast and faded text

The Ultrasharp monitors need a good video card to drive the quality that you have come to know. The emachines lack the memory and quality to drive the monitor. If you don't have a 16meg video card with DVI, you will only get the basic analog qualities of the monitor. I have the same problem at work some of our older machines that have onboard graphics cards that are mediocre. However, when you plug the Ultrasharps into an NVIDIA 32meg card, the resolution is beautiful. I suspect that this is your problem.

Try connecting another monitor first, but seem to be related to your video card.
Check the video card on your computer.

Dell P780 17" CRT Monitor(3 yrs old) issue

That sounds like a monitor issue, not a video card. Gradual fading means components within the monitor are wearing out. However, I strongly advice against attempting repairs. CRT monitors hold a strong electrical charge. People have been injured and even killed by attempting to work on them without proper tools and training. A 17" CRT monitor is too cheap to be worth the risk (you can often get them used... I got mine for $20 at Goodwill).
