*Edit: First step should be to make sure ALL cables and connections are firmly in place.

*slaps self*


Have an approx 3-4 yr old HP WalMart clearance special PC w/ onboard graphics & flatscreen monitor (LCD?). Just a few minutes ago I started getting the following issue:



Basically everything has a "shadow" behind it and/or is starting to stretch to the right of the screen. I'm curious as to if this is a Monitor issue or a GPU issue. If it's just the monitor, that's fine, I'll purchase another on the cheap. I "factory reset" the Monitor, and reset GPU settings to default and am still having the same issue. I have gotten my money out of it and it's been in constant use over the years between gaming, browsing, and using it as a screen to watch Netflix and Hulu on. It's tolerable at this point, but I think it's actually gotten worse just over the past 30 mins or so. Sad

HELB!

The funny part is that screen shot doesn't show the shadows that you were talking about. I'm glad you were able to figure it out the issue though. Cool

Me too. All I did to "fix" my issue was slide the tower out a bit in order to check everything out. Glanced over and did a double take b/c the "problem" was already fixed, the plug was just in a bind due to the tower having been pushed back against the wall just a bit.

HOOWAH CHEEP FIX'Z!
