I bought a Dell 4700 with 19" digital flat panel monitor a couple of
months ago. At first, the video and text was nice and sharp.
Something has changed, somehow. The pictures I have stored on my hard
drive still look great, as does the text, but when I'm online most of
the pictures I view look washed out, blury and/or ghosty. I've tried a
few different resolution settings for the display in Control Panel, but
nothing has helped. Any ideas?

First run Disk Cleanup just in case it is a Temp Internet Files issue.
Check Internet Options, Advanced tab. Check these: enable auto image
resizing, show pictures, smart image dithering. HTH.

Have you recently added or updated a dialup accelerator? If
so, check the image compression settings and make sure they
are what you want.
