Hi,

Okay...I've searched the forum and didn't find anything, so here's a go at it. I've recently built a new computer AMD 64 Bit 3200; Abit Motherboard; GeForce 7800 GTX

When I plug the monitor in it is blurry to the point where it hurts my eyes. When I plug the same computer into my old system it is crisp as rice crispies. I've messed with the Convergence, but it only helps so much. Can someone please help me. Thanks.

Download Everest Home Edition

Run it, click + next to computer then summary, look on right for display / video adapter

Visit the manufacturer's site to look for XP drivers


Please set a system restore point before you install anything


If you are unable to find anything, or are unsure if the files are correct, please post the make and model here before you download anything

What does this program do? Does it fix the blurriness? Or is it like HiJack.

Everest Home shows what is installed

If you set the monitor up on your other PC so the convergence is correct you can check for updated drivers for the video adapter in the PC you have built

I didn't have to tamper with the convergence settings on the other PC. Just the new one. The old PC is crisp and clear without messing with settings. I'm thinking is some hardware config.

Well...I have the proper drivers and latest installed for the monitor. It's a Dell Monitor. This still doesn't fix my blurry problem though.
