    When I type on the computer, some of the letters showup on the monitor blurry. This just started today. What could be causing this? Thanks... Liz

    What kind of monitor, perhaps the make/model? Also, what video card, and what version drivers. Finally, can you be more specific about what exactly is happening? Is this in one spot on the screen, all over the screen, specific letters or fonts, etc.?

    I don't know the version drivers, etc. The monitor is a HP and the letters are not in any sequence. They look like a typewriter with bad ribbon. The fading/blurring is random. This occurs on anything I view on the monitor, not just the letters that I type in. Thanks...Liz

    Well, the simple stuff first. Have you tried the monitor on another computer? My initial guess is the monitor is dying, but it's easy to test it elsewhere to either prove or disprove that diagnosis.

    If the monitor is a "flat panel" LCD type, it could also be that you are running it at the wrong resolution settings.
