You may want to try a few things before you reinstall your video
drivers... Go in to the display control panel, and look at the advanced
tab. (Or it may be "settings"... no OS specified) you're looking for
"Hardware acceleration" When you find it, reduce it a notch until
either the problem goes away or you run out of notches.
If you run out of notches, you may have to reinstall your video drivers.

Which version of Windows are you running?
Slightly different between versions, but basically *somewhere* in Control Panel there will be something shown along the lines of Display Options, and somewhere in there will be an option to change Font DPI. (I think XP has a selection of either 80DPI or 120DPI, default is at 80 - Text is much larger and easier to read at 120)
In Windows 7 (and probably Vista) the path is-
Start - Control Panel - Appearance and Personalization - Display - "Make text and other items larger or smaller"
If you still have the monitor, check the signal cable -- wiggle it a bit at the PC end and at the monitor end, while watching the image on the monitor. Any change? If you have issues when moving the cable at the PC end, you may want to try shutting down the PC and disconnecting the monitor. Then clean the pins on the monitor's connector with 91%+ isopropyl alcohol and a cotton swab (make sure no cotton is left behind). let dry and try again.
If none of this make any difference, wait for the monitor to go dim. Then, gently smack it on all sides. If the image clears up or changes, there is likely an internal bad connection. Do not open the monitor unless you are familiar with all safety precautions involved.
I have the same monitor and I was having a similar problem. Turned out, there was a cracked solder joint on the signal board at the back of the CRT plus several more questionable ones.
The monitor is going bad. It can be serviced but the cost to fix or adjust is not worth it. You may be able to adjust it yourself but A) you need to know what you are doing and B) Accept the risk of completly ruining the monitor or even worse electricuting yourself by accidentialy touching one of the high voltage circuits. A carry in service repair shop will charge about $125.00 to $200.00 to fix it. A new LCD flatscreen is a much better choice it will cost the same or less and will pay you back in time just from the energy savings. My condolences.
Picked up this monitor about half a year ago, a Viewsonic A91f+, and have been having some issues for a while now concerning what appears to be shifting in the monitor image, but that is about the best I can describe it as.
It is most noticable when a large dark area meets a light area, like text or window edges. This "shifting" only occurs on the right side of objects and seems to show most often after I switch resolutions more than a few times, usualy due to gaming. Ive also noticed it happening from running random programs that dont require resolution changing/flickers but this happens FAR less often.

As you can see, its pretty subtle on a darker background, but Ive had no luck carturing it on a light one. Anyone have any idea as to what is occuring on this monitor and how it could possibly be fixed?
Possibly an issue with magnets? For a while, I did have a small headset hanging off the the monitor on the side that the images "shift" towards, but even taking those off and away havent fixed it.
Currently the only fix I have found for this is to shut my monitor off for 5-30 minutes, depending on how bad the "shifting" is when I find a time break long enough to fix it.
