LCD monitor settings

Hello. Unfortunately I have no idea if this is the best place to post but I'll try my best.

I have recently bought a LCD monitor (LG W1942T if it matters). It works great, except when I load this LCD test I get horrible "stripes" while scrolling. It resembles this image:

Now the website recommends setting clock/phase properly. By default they are both set on 50. The stripes disappear when I set phase to 90. Is it safe to change phase? I am afraid I'll damage my monitor or something by changing phase so dramatically? Help would be appreciated.

If it damaged your monitor the manufacturer wouldn't put the option there without at least a warning or they would be sued to hell.

Do you not have a DVI connection you can use? Generally don't have to bother with those settings using a digital connection.

Well, I do have a DVI connection I can use, but it doesn't help anything. Only thing it changes is locking the clock/phase settings, but I still get that "stripes" effect. I found out that only way to take care of it is connecting via D-Sub and configuring the phase.
