My amigo , your monitor is most likely gettin old , Operating systems and video cards do not blur monitors unless you ordered them to do so , I'm a fully qualified monitor technition this stuff happens all the time , basicaly it's the focus block of the monitor , if it's not serious you're lookin at a few bucks to have it worked on , if more serious expect to pay more ,

and if you are me , you put on your ground protection and you open that monitor up and adjust the focus block on the flyback transformer , as CRTs age a bit the focus block needs adjustment , I can also tell you that if you plan on doing it , READ any and all documentation on how to adjust a focus block before you do it , and wear ground protection ( or if you're not scared to die like me , just use your plastic screw driver on the focus block and adjust the little dumpling. it's not rocket science in this particular situation just a focus block adjustment , and if that fails , it's time to chunk it , because more than likely it's about to totaly fail.. and easyer to buy a new one..

focus fuzzyness is a sign of bad things ahead ( 50% of the time. )

Again , if a simple focus block adjustment doesn't do the trick , I'd just chunk it and get another one
unless you're a hardware monkey like me who went to electronics school ...

And above all wear ground protection ...

I'm not responsible for accidental injury or death from following my advice on this , just trying to save your monitor.

as for a solve on this , it's a matter of your willingness to adjust the focus block which is on the flyback transformer , scary and dangerous not recommended for those who haven't made their peace with Elohim and are clumbsy lol

I hope this still gets counted as a solve

Problems with Western Digital My Book World Edition


I have the same drive. It works great with windows XP but with Windows vista has difficulty seeing this type of drive and keeping the connection once it is established. Take it back if you have windows vista and then search for which 1TB drives work well with windows vista. It really has problems with windows vista 64bit. I was able to finally see the drive when I was using photoshop file/browse/network... then I dragged the shortcut Icon to my desktop and access the drive that way from that point on. Mine stopped completely tonight... I think the power cord went bad or something.

My 500GB Mybook world edition's mother board died.


It's the format that doesn't allow windows to access the data. Only way to recover is to get another external drive and transfer the data to it. Then you could reformatt the old drive to work with XP. Hope this helps.

Hi, i am trying to set up a Western Digital My Book World Edition on my iMac. The iMac recognises the installation disc but I am unable to open it on the mac. I have looked on the WD website for downloads...


Try a complete uninstall and reinstall. Also double check to see that it is compatible to your Mac. It proboably is, but check anyways just in case. Stuff like this is more commonly overlooked than you think.
