    Well, I don't know how the tests really work for CRTs, but I can't even see the THX shadows at all. So, I can't get rid of them on my LCD and can't see them at all for my LCD. What does that mean? For me, it means I'm glad I watch movies on the large TV in the other room.;)

    For the CRT, I ended up changing the contrast to 80% and the brightness to 55%. I think that should work.:)

    Yeh, I ended up doing that and I think I have settings I can work with right now. Yes, I can't see the shadow at all on this CRT (Viewsonic G90f). I wonder what people were suggesting to be the best brightness/contrasting settings for this monitor? Both DVD-ROMs are Asus and the new one for the LCD is the E818A3T and the old one for the CRT is the E616P3.

    Any ideas on these comments I found online (talking about my CRT)?
    "to get rid of the fuzzy text, simply use the front panel controls on the monitor to bring the brightness down to about 1/3 and increase the contrast to maximum. And make sure you're using 9300K in the viewmatch color menu. That will get rid of the fuzzy text and it will make whites appear white. It will also reduce the visible change in brightness of the desktop that is apparent (with the default settings) when you switch between open windows that are not maximized."

    my stuck pixels (two that is) are flickering.....one is stuck then all unstuck, then one stuck then two stuck, one unstuck, etc. This would be a great b-day present if all went unstuck forever tonight.:)

    Your stuck pixels are on the BenQ, right?

    Happy birthdays by the way! :)

    Yes, but that has nothing to do with BenQ as you're always crap shooting with stuck pixels when you buy an LCD monitor. Oddly enough, I was playing Quake3 for about 5-10 minutes and they disappeared, but came back later. So I know I can get a perfect screen, if I can only figure out how to keep it that way or if it would just magically stay that way.;)

    Thanks for the B-day wish.:)

    EDIT: Also, i just ran the UT2003 benchmark program and all but one pixel went away. Apparently, there was around 4-5 bad pixels (or possibly more), but they're bigger than I thought they were so it looks like only 2 (if that makes any sense). All went away and only one came back, but it's so small that I would really not care at all about this if this was the only fault. I'm not sure if only one pixel will remain; although, I'm liking what I'm seeing. Maybe I'll run the UT2003 benchmark before playing any game.;)

    Since I started playing more games, it looks like either one extremely small stuck pixel (one pixel it looks like) or no stuck pixels at all!!! Yippee!!!

    carolin, sounds like (if you're not a bot) that the resolution your graphics is set to isn't supported by the monitor.

    Set it to 800x600 and go up from there.
