I have a dell 8100. My 15" sxga screen went out so I decided to go cheap route by going on E Bay. I bought a whole unit (lcd,case,inverter,cables,etc). When powered up the screen looks blurry, running either 1024 x 768 or 1280 x 1024. Plus when I touch the lower part of the screen with my fingertip it looks like it spreads the liquid inside of the screen. If I get a vibration, some parts look like the ripple effect on water. what would cause this, i have already contacted the seller and expressed my displeasure. thanks

Many LCD's have this liquid-ish effect when touched or made to vibrate. Unless it's totally excessive, I'd say it may be normal behaviour.

The blurriness may be caused by a bad connection, so you might want to try re-seating the signal cable from mobo to screen. Also, the refresh rate should be checked to be 60 Hz, which is normal for an LCD. I assume, that one of the resolutions you mention is the native resolution of the LCD... Any other resolution will be blurry (or re-sized, with black borders around the screen).
