    I have an Acer V223HQV monitor,it is an older monitor and it only has VGA display option.
    So i recently bought a new pc with a Nvidia gtx 1060 which only has HDMI conection.
    First i bought a cable that converts hdmi signal to vga and everything worked fine.
    Then that converter cable broke and i bought a new one,literally the same cable but new.
    Now with that new cable my display seems blurry but not like foggy blurry or text blurry.Text and icons seem to have some kind of chromatic abberation effect.
    Something like this [​IMG]

    I have tryed the ClearType thing and it doesent work.
    I tryed everything,from nvidia control panel to my monitor settings and i also updated all my drivers and nothing seems to fix it.

    Hi, and welcome to TSG.
    Your picture seems to be of an optical distortion involving lenses. I can't think of any way that type of aberration could occur on an LCD monitor. Can you please provide photos of your actual screen showing the whole screen and a closeup of the aberration?

    If you purchased your adapter cables online, please provide a direct link to the seller's product page for the adapter or provide the manufacturer's name and exact model number of the adapter cable.

    The Acer V223HQV 21.5" LCD Monitor has a native resolution of 1920 X 1080 and is capable of 1080p(full HD).
    It has a standard 15-pin VGA video connection and no built-in speakers.

    Here is the Acer support site for it that might be helpful to you.

    Based on what you said in post #1, I'm guessing the issue is with the replacement HDMI-To-VGA converter cable.

    I have seen that type of problem with RGB analog video inputs on monitors. In your case, the problem is typically caused by bad or missing grounding of the shield around the individual analog red video cable at either the source or monitor end of the VGA cable. The red shield is pin #6 of the VGA connector. Check your cable for any bent or broken pins. Try another VGA cable if you have one.

    Frank beat me to mentioning the other possible problem. Bad grounding of the shield contact in the adapter could also cause the problem.

    The problem is in the converter cable for sure because the VGA cable is fine.
    Thank you both for your time.
