LCD help

I just got this Philip 190G6 LCD monitor, one of the most expensive on the market...

After installation - all cables connected, driver installed & adjustment, the screen produced shadows and the picture is not too crisp either.
This is most annoying when reading text doc.

In fact worse than my old CRT.

I've used the bundled software FPAdjust to adjust the LCD but no luck!

Can anyone suggest a way to improve the performance?

My PC is using AMD 64x2 3600 CPU, Nvidia GeForce 7300GT video card & 1G DDR2 RAM.

at its native resolution? If it is NOT a wide screen that would be 1280 X 1024.

Philip 190G6 LCD monitor, one of the most expensive

Being the "most expensive" does NOT make it the best.
One of the reason's it is expensive is that is has four built in speakers (one in each corner) and an external woofer. It also has a built-in USB 2.0 hub. None of these things I put much value in, but then again that's me.

For the kind of money I see that this monitor going for (Philips calls it their "all-in-one Multimedia LCD Flat Display for high-quality home entertainment") I believe I could get a better components separately, but then again that's me.

Some of the responses here have been good points to check. Follow them. There is no reason you should suffer with the type of display problems you've mentioned. You've already suffered enough. Happy

Thanks everybody!

Tried ClearType, some improvement, shadow or ghost still there.
LCD is running 1280x1024.
Disabled Philips (monitor) driver, running on GeForce driver alone.

Any more suggestions?
