OK. Great idea to try another monitor! What you forgot was to tell us the make and model. Also we need the make and model of what you're connecting the monitor to.
That said, it could be the cable and connectors: are you using an adapter to match up with a specific connector?
It could be a resolution setting on the monitor or on the video card. Both have menus for adjusting the input signals.
If you can make out a faint image then the fault is a backlight problem. The fault could be an inverter board or the CCFL lamp/s For service, parts and DIY info check out LCD Parts - click on this link to their WEB site : - www.lcdparts.net
Well in monitor you can do one thing - disconnect the monitor cable*(VGA Cable) from the tower and chk still if u have the same faint screen that means monitor gone bad if not than uninstall the Grapics Driver and shut down computer... if u have internet than restart and go to device manager ( Run - devmgmt.msc) under display adapter right click on grapics name and update driver.
First off, LCD monitors have what is called a 'native resolution' and that is why it is recommended to be at 1440 x 900. That is the resolution they work best at. My first suggestion is to try to move the monitor closer to you. If that is not possible, try right-clicking on your desktop, click on the Properties tab (That is where you change the resolution. I am doing this for a Windows XP machine - if you are running Vista please let me know and I will try to walk you through it there). Click on the "Advanced" button and in the "General" tab, there should be a "DPI Setting" drop down box. There is usually 96 DPI and 120 DPI. Try 120 DPI and see if that helps.
Second, try using your monitor's menu settings to help the color settings. On your monitor there is a "Menu" button of some sort. Press that and select "Acer eColor Management" and try "Text Mode" to see if that is easier on your eyes. You can also manually adjust the screen and lower the strength of the red color by picking "User" instead of "Acer eColor Management" and selecting the icon that looks like a pyramid of 3 dots. Try adjusting the Red slider and see if that helps.
If possible, try your monitor with another PC; this sounds more like a video processor problem than a monitor unless you are using it in the VGA-analog mode, then, you could have a bad video cable.
The smear can be caused by improper termination and that can come from a failed ground or shield.
Generally speaking, the kind of effect you describe can't happen with a digital interface; they cause the coarse pixelation one sometimes sees on TV sets too.
