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 have a Gateway FPD2275W monitor that is LCD and it has the same ghosting image described elsewhere, so I guess it does occur on LCDs

If it has a removeable cable between the PC and screen, try removing it and plugging it in and trading ends (plug the end that was in the PC into the back of the screen and vice-versa...) If the connector is even slightly loose or the cable is going bad it will cause the problem you're having, and as long as it's removeable you can easily get & replace the cable... Good luck!
[u][b]LCD Monitor Shadow Effect[/b][/u]
This problem is best described as the LCD monitor "Shadow Effect". The solution to this very simple. No software or hard ware changes required. The cables that are connected to the LCD monitors are causing the problem. Its also called as electromagnetic noise or electrical noise. [u][b]Solution: [/b][/u]Keep the two cables - (power cable and moitor display cable), that are connected to the LCD monitor as far away as possible with each other and also away from other electrical cables.
Thats it. Your shadow effect is fixed.
YOU ARE EXPERIENCING THE EFFECT OF GHOSTING. iT CAN BE FIXED
cREATE A 1200X1600 100% WHITE .GIF TO USE AS A SCREEN SAVER. (IN WINDOWS YOU CAN ADD IT TO MY PICTURES SLIDESHOW)
Set this slide show to run after 2 minutes of non use. Set the nonitor to power off in a short amount of non use. say 15 minutes. Do that for a couple of days and the ghosting affect will go away . You can then turn to a more reasonable screen saver.

Jnanda, 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.
Hi, what type of the monitor, LCDs or CRTs???? Also, will the shadows being shown at the same spots or at different spots at different time?? it could help to narrow the problem, post it on more detail if possible.
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.
