Hi,I just reformatted my system because I was having slight flickering on my monitor and I thought it was to do with my new Graphics card which I added to my MOBO which has in-built graphics.Everything is installed with no driver issues now and the flickering is gone but....I have a new problem.The picture is crystal clear although some text is very slightly blurry.I am not sure if it is to do with my resolution or refresh rate and I cannot find any info online as to what my monitor should run at.My monitor is a LG Flatron W2234S and it is currently set to 1680 x 1050 and refresh rate is 60 Hz.I don't even know if this is the correct resloution for this monitor.Do I have my monitor set wrong or could it be something else?I described it as blurry text,but it is really more of a smudge effect especially with blacks,the smudge goes out to the right slightly :)

Hi Broni, I have just this minute fixed it.I switched vga cables when I was having flickering problems and have switched them again and voila....no flickering (due to re-format I think,maybe had some driver conflicts)and no blurred text (using a better quality vga cable).Thanks though!
