Not sure if I would call it ghosting or not, but everything (especially black text on white background) seems to have a shadow to the right of it. Especially noticeable with bold text and larger fonts. Saw one "generic" fix for "ghosting" that recommended a cable replacement but don't want to spend the $ if we're really talking about something different. Have updated the driver and attempted various adjustments (focus, etc). The OSD is NOT shadowed or "ghosted"

Hi Jonhy, on the pc , try this steps: 1. At the mainscreen mouse rigth click and go to Properties 2. Go to Definitions and Advanced 3. A window with graphic board's properties will come up and the choose 3D setup/config (depending on graphic board mark) 4. Change from Direct 3D to OpenGL and then Apply and OK to close.
This procedure is to change from hardware aceleration to software aceleration of image on screen. As that it will be sent only one kind of image definition from the pc to the screen with no repeating or mirrowed data. Hope it will helps you.
The speakers in this monitor require a powered speaker output, and most audio cards only provide a line level output, which is not enough to drive these. You may need to go out and get another sound card like a creative labs or the like - but make sure the card has a SPEAKER out on it, and not just a line level output. You may be better off simply going out and getting a set of powered speakers!
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!
Ok right click the desktop choose properties and then scree resoloution in there change the slider to a higher resoloution say 1280x1024 32bit, or 1024x768 32bit. see if that helps. Also you might like to press the Auto key on monitor so it will reset itself.
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.

Are they both about the same age? Also have you recently added a device that is sitting near the monitors such a an external hard drive, printer, new speakers or power cord or cable next to or against the monitor cable? I sounds like EMI to me, shield the cable or plug of the offending devices into another outlet away from the monitors to test that theory, or having them on a separate surge protector should eliminate the noise you are reporting. Some go as far as adding UPS with line filtering (or conditioning) for the devices - you see it with home theater setups when the TV, computer, games and stereo are all plugged in the same outlets on the same home circuit.
Plugged up display via the VGA cable to an HP dv6000 laptop; the Acer powered up and displayed fine ... however, noticed a faint waving motion in the picture, as if the screen was literally gel and began to wave, from top to bottom as it appeared. Best I can describe it ... any suggestions as to why? I only connected it to this HP to try it out, I ordered it from newegg and wanted to make sure pixels werent dead on arival. I will be getting an Aurora 7500 (Alienware): AMD X2 6000, Windows Vista Premium, 2GB RAM, GeForce 512 8800GT, SLI ready motherboard ... I heard good things of Acer and hoped this display would look great with my soon-to-come setup and im sure it will. However, just nervous it will do this on my Aurora. Any help or suggestions would be beyond appreciated!!
