blurring CRT

i current have a dual 19" CRT setup on my machine. i am experiencing, or have been for awhile now, blurring on them. i know this isnt a vid card problem because i experienced the same effect on the monitors on my previous card as well. when you first switch it on, the screen image is clear and crisp but as time goes on, say for 1 or 2 hours, then it starts getting blurry, as in the words get harder and stays that way till something changes, eg, screen saver comes on or im playing a game or watching a video. so in essence, if i was surfing the net on IE or whatever for an extended period of time, it starts getting blurry but clears if there is anything else on it, like video or games or the screen saver. does anyone know why this effect is caused?

Try deguassing the display.

Alternatively, your eyes may be borked =P

thanks dave. that link exactly describes what i was trying to say in my post. i have no speakers so they are out of the equation.

however, ive seen this kind of blurring before even in LCDs where theyve used splitters to get the same image to multiple monitors. its almost like astigmatism for the monitor, LCD or CRT. hence i always thought it was signal degredation from the vid card.

thanks again.

Tried different resoltuions / refresh rates? You might have to get a new monitor. With it happening on LCD monitors, I'm not sure, but maybe it is just due to the fact that they are displaying a non-native resolution?

Let us know how you go.
