I have a new acer aspire computer hooked up to an older ctx color monitor. I can watch dvd's and play video games and the picture is clear. But when I get on ANY internet site the pictures are always blurry (the text is clear). I have adjusted the monitor settings, etc. without any luck. Can anyone tell me how to fix this?

Assuming you have XP, go to Control Panel ----> Display ----> Click on Settings tab ----> the "Advanced" (bottom right).

What you see now varies from PC to PC depending on your graphics card. However, there should be a Monitor tab. Click on that and let us know what the Refresh rate is set at.

Do you know what model your CTX monitor is?

The recommended resolution for current CTX CRT montitors is 1024 x 768 @ 85Hz

You could try that ?

Also, does your monitor have a Degauss function in the OSD control menu? Have you tried that? If you do try that then do not hold the button down and don't repeat within 20 minutes of doing so.

Cheers :)
