Monitor leaves a latent image for a split second
Posted on 2005-03-23
Hi guys once again.
I hope you might be able to help. I have just built myself a new system and I never experienced this before, not with the old system anyway. It didn't happen on the old system even with the same monitor being used.
I have just built myself an AMD 64 3000+ on a MSI Neo4 Platinum 939 board with 1 gig of ram. My monitor is a Philips 170c4.
When I open and close aplications or windows I get like a quick flickering effect and a latent image on the screen a bit like the monitor cannot cope with the speed, or I might be wrong. Its like a ghosting effect buts its difficult to describe really. Its like I can still see the previous screen for a split second after closing or opening a window.
I was wondering if anyone new what this might be and if there is anyway that I can cure it. Is it the refesh rate??
I run the monitor in the recommened mode which is 1280x1024 @60Hz.
Thx again guys for your help.
