My old monitor had started to blur text and photos. I purchased a new HP ZR2040w from Amazon. Hooked it up and the photos are good but the text has light gray shadows to the right. Anybody have any ideas??

A screen shot would give us a better idea of what we are looking at Sgidden.

Try to use .jpeg or .png files in future shots mate but apart from that I see nothing wrong with the image.

No mate.

I've taken that .pdf up to 200% and I still can't see what you speak of.

I mean let's take that paragraph above the keyboard diagram, I can't see anything wrong with it.

Well....I would say it was my eyes, but my monitor at work doesn't look like this. If I have to buy another monitor what would you suggest?

I would have to say that the monitor is not at fault here but rather your interpretation of what is good.

HP make quite good products in my opinion and in fact I possess this one.

Are you running the monitor at its native resolution? A LCD monitor set at a different resolution will be fuzzy. It should be set to 1920x1080 for that monitor.

A screenshot will not show that. You would have to take a picture of it with a camera, but then there are issues with the resolution of the camera and taking a picture of the monitor.

The highest value listed for resolution is 1600 x 900

That could be the issue.

If you have access to another computer, you could try attaching the monitor and then selecting different resolutions to see how things look. This would also confirm what you are seeing and show that the monitor is ok if the correct resolution is selected.

You might see if you can replace the video board.
