\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.
The "shadowing" you talk about is due to cables in back of your computer, touching or too close together. I had this happen to mine. I separated, moved the cables apart, and no more shadows !! Sounds too easy, but it works. Try it.
