    I have this 18.1" viewable Dell LCD monitor and up until last night it was working fine. I woke up this morning and now all text and pictures cast this weird horizontal shadow all the way across the screen. It's like everything has this motion blur behind it. Anyone ever have this happen to their monitor? I know nothing is burned into it, but it still don't understand what's goin on.

    I don't know but try a different resolution. Then if you can, try a different monitor to exclude the graphics card.

    Is it a single line or a bunch of lines?
    Does does the screen seem darker now?
    Anyway you can take a picture of it and post it? Not screenshot.

    this happens with my laptop sometimes. I hit it and it's fixed (loose connection somewhere)
