OK, you computer experts out there... here's my problem... hope you can help.
Several months ago, I bought a Dell 1707FP LCD flat panel monitor. It has just started to show some severe "smudging" for lack of a better term. If you imagined a certain phrase on a web site were printed in damp ink, and you took a pencil eraser and drew it from left to right, you would see a grayish smudge to the right of the words.
Any ideas what this might be? I've struggled a bit with the adjustments... auto adjust, resolution, factory settings, etc., but no luck.
I am afraid it is not a settings or adjustment problem, but rather some basic defect.
Thanks in advance for any ideas.
