Anywhere on my monitor that I have text, or anything else for that matter, I get a horizontal shading on both sides of the text out to the edge of the screen. I thougth the problem was with the monitor. IT'S NOT I have had this problem for ahwile, but I was going to buy a new LCD monitor and thought a new one would cure the problem. The new monitor has the same shading. Is the problem the video card?
Any thoughts?

I tried your suggestion, however I don't get that option under the effects tab. What do you think is the best way to determine the problem?
