If the second monitor shows the same problem, then it's not the monitor.
If the monitor isn't the problem, then you may want to to find an updated video driver for your graphics card and install it.
Hope this helps.
Monitor: Dell 19" LCD, Video Card: RADEON X600 256MB HyperMemory.
Compuror: Dell dimension 9100 ,winxp2
I started to have problems after power outage : the font in the IE7 address bar / Start Menus and so on looks faint and jagged like the monitor quality reset itself to a lower quality. How do I fix this problem? Display is set to highest (32bit). Please help.
