Having problems with your Samtron 76df 17" CRT Monitor ?

My crt monitor has a white ghost image to the right. It looks like JPEG artifacts. I've replaced the monitor and I've tried another graphics card, but it's still there. The PC is an HP d325.


Answers :

A ghost on your screen is usually caused by a second or reflection of the same image getting into your monitor, and the space between the real image ant the ghost is the delay in time or extra distance the second image travels before it is displayed on your screen. It is usually caused by a defective video cable or a cable longer than usual like 8 feet or more. Also is your monitor plugged into the same outlet as the computer, and is the case on your computer as all are possible reasons for your problem. Some times adding a ground wire from monitor to computer can correct problem. This can be a problem that takes some real detective work to find, and all I can do is suggest some possible causes.
Personally, I would not try to fix - 17" flat screen monitors are inexpensive, are cheaper to run and take up much less space. I know it dosn't "fix" the problem but it may well be time to upgrade.
