That means that the monitor is just junk. A lot of cheap CRTs were made like this back before LCDs were popular....on paper and in the settings box they are able to say they "fully support" high resolutions, but it ends up so blurry you can't really use it like that.

EDIT: I just got an idea. In your monitor options, see if there is a "moire" option. If there is, play around with it. That might do the trick.

I used to have a CRT that officially supported 1024x768, but would work at 1152x864. At either of these resolutions it was somewhat blurry.

I was never able to find a fix.

See if there is a local used hardware store in your area. they likely have a ton of used CRTs. I got mine for $20 (yes, that's twenty US dollars), and it's awesome. Far better than the 22" LCD I had before (and that was a good LCD). 2048x1536@80Hz anyone?

I don't know if this is related to your problem or not but when I received my 100 lb 21" Trinitron in the mail, the entire display was extremely blurry. I spent up to 2 hours attempting to fix it. I messed with every setting, subsetting, subsubsetting there was and nothing would work. This was 3 winters ago.

I kept getting a "warm up" notification but I disregarded it. Then, all of a sudden, my monitor became crystal clear. Apparently it had gotten so cold during storage and shipping that the components needed to warm up to display the picture properly.

In your case, it probably would have happened by now though. :/

^^ spam


the monitor is probably old, if its a good one, on the back there should be 2 small holes, a philips screw driver wil allow you to tune the clearity a bit more

i LOL'd

i was just reading this thread and all of sudden outta nowhere i see
"For Conquer Online Cheats Conquer Online Guides and Conquer Online cheats and bots click here"
i spent like 2 min trying to read this the i was like w/e and scrolled down to see it was only spam.
Worst two minutes of my life waisted.
/spammer

anyways back to the issue. try to leave it on in for a long time in a small room to see if that helps.

also a wire must have come loose during transport.
i know these things are built like tanks but the wires in side of it aren't.

Ya this also happened to me. My Samsung 997DF became extremely blurry espcially in the center of the screen. IMine is like 3-4 years so it might be just crappy out. I found the best thing to do was to keep it at 1024x768@75hz. I found, just like you that raising the resolution made it worse. I use it as my 2nd monitor now, and it is still blurry.

look on the extreior of the monitor for 2 small holes that you could put a long screwdrive into. One of those pots should be for the focus control. If you've got a monitor that doesn't have the holes in the outside of the case then you'll have to decase it and get at the pots located directly on the flyback. This is not a safe thing to do if you do not understand what you're getting into. The high voltage side of a CRT has enough voltage and curent to potentially be LETHAL. I do not recommend this if you are not experienced with high voltage safety precautions.

Take the case off of the monitor. The usually slide off towareds the back after takeing out some screws. Locate the flyback, it will most likely be the biggest thing on the PCB and have some large windings and capacitors surrounding it. The dangerous part about adjusting the focus is tat you have to do it with the monitor on to get it right. hile the monitor is on the flyback will be outputting 25-30KV nominal, so be very careful with a screwdriver around it. One of the pots on the flyback should be marked with an f. This is the one that controls focus, the other will change the brightness. Simply turn the screw until the focus looks right, then tun off the monitor an case it back up.

I read it somewhere else too... they're VERY small plastic-ish pots.

If it doesn't have it consider Chozart's suggestion.

That should fix it, but make sure you leave the monitor unplugged for at least 24 hours before taking the cover off.
