I am getting blurry pictures and images in the 17" Dell Monitor.
In order to have a clean page, I click the right button of the mouse and and go to "Refresh Page with Full Quality".
Please let me know how could I correct this problem.
Thank you.

Internet Acclerators?

Are you using any sort of program that claims to speed up a dialup connection? Most of those work by reducing the quality of images to cut down on the amount of data needed to be downloaded, along with other stupid tricks that don't do more than give the illusion of increased speed.

Anyway, if you're using such a program, disable it and the problem should go away.

Thank you very much for your help.

I have disabled the "accelerator".

The monitor is working like a brand new.

Keep up with the excellent work.

I hadn't even considered that possibility...and looked at a possible hardware issue instead. This is great info to know.

Specs on that monitor
by TONI H / January 21, 2005 11:09 PM PST

since you emailed me with the model number of it...

I would think the refresh rate needs to be adjusted in Display, Settings, Advanced and go to the Monitor tab to see what it's defaulting to now and adjust it to what the specs are at the link I higher than 60 HZ from what I can see.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
