Having problems with your Computer Monitors ?

Dell UltraScan P1110 flat-screen monitor BLURRY?

\015 Recently while trying to fix a problem with some very fine horizontal lines that appear in the background of my desktop icons and also appear in my CAD software program...\015\012\015\012I pressed the far left button on the bottom of the monitor screen thinking this might fix the horizontal line problem. This button is NOT labeled, but has a dot with two arrows converging onto it. I don't know if this caused my screen to go blurry or not. Well, the horizontal lines are now gone. However, I now have blurry text in WORD, on the web,etc. My icons are also BLURRY?\015\012\015\012What could be the problem? I have gone through all the menu option buttons on the monitor with no resolution. I have also tried to contact Dell tech. support but they keep asking for a service tag or purchase number. Neither of which I have since I purchased this monitor back in 1999 from a third party web source.\015\012\015\012Any help would be appreciated.\015

Answers :

The button you pressed is the reset button and according to the documentaton "returns the monitor to factory defaults".

\015\012Regarding the lines that were orginally were trying to fix; see Damper Wires in Troubleshooting in the above documentation and you'll see that they're a fact of life with this type of monitor. I realize this may not have been your problem, but then again...
\015\012
\015\012I'm surprised that the factory reset made things blurry. Usually this is the result of less than optimum settings on the display adapter in your computer rather than the monitor itself. The Trouble Shooting guide says the brightness and contrast being set too high can cause this so that may be worth checking.
\015\012
\015\012I think you should check your display adapter settings after you try the Troubleshooting suggestions. On the desktop of your computer right click in an empty spot and select Properties. Click on the Settings tab and see what the resolution is. If it's not 1280x1024 you might want to try that. Everything on the screen may suddenly appear smaller so don't be surprised. I would also check the monitor frequency. This will probably be found under Advanced. Every display adapter is different so I can't tell you exactly where to look, just polk around. If you start changing things you may want to write down the original settings so you can at least get back to where you started if there's a problem.

If you find this helpful I hope you'll take a moment and provide a positive rating. About half of the solutions I've posted have never been rated... Thanks and good luck.
