DESKTOP ICONNS AND ALL PRINT AND FOLDERS SEEM TO BE DOUBLE V

by oldieguy / May 19, 2009 1:17 PM PDT

Recently all writing and images, icons, folders etc seem to be in double vision. everything has a shadow so to speak. This is only present on my big screen Mitsubishi being used as a monitor. HP media center pc. The nvidia video out card or settings within it's parameters may be the problem. The display is ok on a monitor or HDTV used as a monitor via s-video or pc connection. The mitsubishi has always been an acceptable monitor before. Any ideas?

I have this elder FX5500 Nvidia card that is "within it's parameters" but it still has a double vision or shake to the display. Pulling the resolution back a few notches fixes it but I am no longer at the native resolution of the big LCD display.

Next week a newer video card will arrive and I hope this resolves that issue.

S-VIDEO SPLITTER WAS THE CULPRIT

In reply to: Small world.

I had been using a splitter to send video to two different rooms. One to the big screen tv. The other was being used by a 19" hdtv as a monitor. I found that the splitter was at fault when i direct connected to the big screen tv. The 19" screen would sometimes have this same double vision appearance. I will replace the splitter and see if it helps.

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?
