Question about Gateway FPD2275W LCD Monitor
I have what I would call double images or shadows on the images on my monitor. There is a shadow like image to the left of each image and after sentences / lines of text but not with indidual letters of text.
I sthere any adjustment I can make within windows XP for this problem. This has periodically occured but usually resolved after a restart.I've played with screen resolution but clearly isn't doing it.
I read through other solutions to this problem because I had the same problem. I checked to make sure electrical cords were properly attached, and vola! problem solved! I had no idea this problem could be fixed just by checking the cord connections. Thanks a million for posting this solution. I had been putting up with the shadowing, streaking for months! You really made my day.

I had the same problem. I just tighten the VGA cable on the PC side and I worked.

Try repositioning cables, cords may be too close to a power source that is interfering w/your signal!
Worked for me!

Your monitor is suffering from "ghosting", or what is probably a sign of age on most CRT type monitors (non flat screen). There's no solution inside Windows, although there might be an adjustment on your monitor you could try (sharpness, etc). You could try powering off and powering on the monitor again after a brief period.
Unfortunately the ultimate solution to this problem is to get a new monitor. Newer LCD monitors don't suffer from this problem and are also a lot easier on the eyes. :)

Ha ha ha....just saw this post, but managed to fix the problem another way.
1) Tried adjusting the clock/pitch & phase controls on the monitor, but no luck
2) turned on the cleartype tuner as well as downloading the power toy w/ no success
3) although have a dell monitor, downloaded the intel embedded graphics adapter as suggested here
didn't seem to work, but after a bit of a pause noticed that the shadows were gone...YEAH! not sure if it was necessarily the adapter download, maybe it was one of the above, but the fix was a bit delayed after i made the changes.
Next time, i'll try ensuring the plug is tight.

Try swapping the blue ended monitor cable around the other way. and ensure the cable is tightly fitted and screwed in at both ends.

I was having the exact same problem with my Viewsonic LCD VA1930wm and I came to realize that my VGA cable was not plugged in all the way. I would suggest swapping out your cable to see if that might be problem
