[u][b]LCD Monitor Shadow Effect[/b][/u]
\015\012This 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.
\015\012Thats it. Your shadow effect is fixed.
\015\012Thank you.
For me, this was simply an issue of wiggling my DVI cable... the monitor has the port facing downwards and I hadn't screwed it in. Must have just jiggled slightly loose.
