Maybe some of you remeber the problems I was having with monitors a few weeks ago. I went through two different monitors, both had bad brown spots on them. I finally got a Samsung monitor (syncMaster 753DF). It worked fine...

But this morning I wake up and guess what? I've got this weird image thing going on. There seems to be a "ghost" image of whatever is on the screen about 1/16 of an inch to the right. It is especially noticable now, when I type. The black text creates a bright white "ghost" againt the paler white background.

Now, has anyone ever seen this before? Is it fixable, to your knowledgs? Also, am I the one causing all these problems? Could it somehow be my computer?

i would suspect the video card or connections
try reseating the video card and check the connections check for a bent pin or a pin that has been pushed back and not making a connection
