Whats up?

Does anybody know of any settings other than (contrast&bright) that can correct a ghosty screen. During games I have really vibrant color and the color will stay vibrant for about 15 min after Im done playing. Then the screen goes ghosty again. Any Ideas at all????

Try messing with your vid card settings instead of the buttons on the monitor.
