Bought the card and have found that there is a "ghosting" effect (light grey
shadow
to the immediate right of the typed text). Have tried several fresh
reinstalls of
XP Pro, using the drivers included with the card (MSI), downloading drivers
from the nVidia site ( ver 71.89 and older ones) and hacked drivers.
Also tried different screen resolutions, refresh rates and color quality
settings.
Nothing seems to help.

Any suggestions for a cure ???

thanks
ray

Insufficient data. What brand/model of monitor and video-card. ?
Analog or Digital video output to monitor ?

You are seeing an "echo" due to faulty termination or poor-quality
components. Exclusively hardware -- monitor, cable, or video card
output-circuitry.

Did you just exchange the card in an existing system, or is the whole
system new to you ?

It is NOT a software/driver problem !!

My Viewsonic P225f does the same, and it´s monitor-related. Mayby it´s your
monitor as well ?

Yep...adjust your monitor properly. Its the monitor thats the problem.
If its a LCD/TFT look for a menu optino that lets you alter the
"phase" setting.

Hi Ray,

Indeed there is a big chance that Your monitor (cable) is at fault. Just
wanted to "warn" You though: When my Ti4200 started giving me those shadows,
it died very soon. (The fan was not broken.) So if You can't solve it, if it
gives the same effect on other monitors, go back to the shop.

Good luck. It's a good choice You made!

Greetings,
Rene

Solved......found that the KVM switch I've been using doesn't work well with
the 6800GT card. Hooked the monitor to the card and all is good. Guess
I get to buy another new toy !!

thanks to all.....

Ahhh.... I remember a legion of junk KVM switches that I went through
about a year and a half ago... Pity you did not tell us about the KVM
-- they contain active electronic circuitry and are NOT transparent.
Many are cheap and nasty design. A high-quality KVM contains
very-wide-bandwidth video amplifiers of very recent technology.

What make of KVM ?

I have 2 Belkin KVMs on 2 sets of computers. Excellent performance.
Zero echoes.

Also zero support for PS/2 mice with extended command sets. Switch the
Belkin KVM, and you either get the extra buttons not working, or a mouse
pointer that randomly skits all over the place.
Then there's DDC passthrough, which is flaky at best.
And a built-in buzzer that can't be disabled (without a screwdriver and
soldering iron, that is).

In my experienced opinion, Belkin KVMs are the worst trash you can get, but
they're cheap and sold at major outlets, so many people have them.

I have only the standard 3 button/wheel PS2 optical mice. No problem
with any mouse function on these standard mice. No pointer problem
whatsoever. The specific Belkins I use are the simple dual-input PS2,
analog-video cable-pod version (F1DK102P). I do not need KVM-audio
switching, as my audio amps have front-panel alternate-input switches.
The Belkin video is excellent.

Yes ???

>Belkin KVMs are the worst trash you can get,

Nope, having personally sorted through some of the real trash ( in my
not-so-humble opinion as a professional video engineer...)

Alternate recommendations for the OP, please, together with sample
prices................... ???
