Having problems with your Computer Monitors ?

My computer monitor has been doing weird things lately. The text looks ''doubled'' (there is a lighter, fuzzy offset to the right of the characters) it happens with pictures, too. Also if I look closely, I see a faint fuzzy static. My monitor is cheap and I think a knock-off brand. Is this due to the cheapness of the monitor, or is it a problem I can fix?
