VGA split cable caused fonts displayed on screen to be shadowy

I got one of the split VGA cables as shown below to connect up 2 LCD
screens to my HP/Compaq PC:

However, the fonts displayed on the LCD turned out to be shadowy.

Is there something I must reconfigure on my Win XP to make this
'shadow' go away (so that I get a sharp font again) or this is the
split cable problem

yes, could be because ot that split cables or other cables you have in.
anyway try to chek in display properties (right-click on desktop/wallpaper and properties > in Apperarance tab > Effects and "use following method to smooth edges of the screen fonts")

It's most likely because you are using a splitter - splitting a video signal cuts the voltages in half, and that makes the signal harder to lock onto, as well as darker.  Use a video distribution amp like the Kramer VP-200 when you want to clone a display.
