Question about KDS Computers & Internet
Did the problem occur out of nowhere? Is it a new monitor and was like that from the start? Is it an old monitor? Laptop? LCD? There isn't enough information.
However, try setting all video settings to default or "recommended". If that doesn't work, be sure your video card and display drivers are updated.

Ensure that the monitor's UltraBrite mode is off, via the "UltraBrite Mode" button on the front panel. UltraBrite is great for games and movies, but it tends to fuzz plain text ever so slightly.

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.

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.
