Lines and shadows on TFT screen

  1. I've recently bought a LG L1710B 17" TFT monitor.

    Connected to my 32Mb TNT2 graphics card with a VGA cable but to my horror, there were lines and shadow everywhere.

    Tried most of the settings but cannot rectified the problem.

    Can anyone please advise what I can do? Will a dodgy cable be the problem? I am planning to use a DVI- DVI cable once my new graphics card is delivered. Will that help?

    Are the lines and shadows always in the same place, or do they move about/change when you move the vga cable or monitor or other nearby electrical items? If so then it looks like you're getting some kind of interference. Without seeing your display it is difficult to imagine what your picture is like and diagnise the problem better, but we are always willing to try.:D

    The vertical lines are consistently 2mm to the right causing around 3-4 shadows per actual line. Anyway, LG will replace it with a new one... will see whether the same problem occurs! :)
