  Recently my monitor got very gloomy , every icon or text got their colors spilled like shadows in the left to right direction . And I also noticed that colors on my monitor got a little bit pale . 
I've checked in Win 7 options for display and in my AMD Catalyst Control Center app .  Color quality is : High-32 bit , Refresh rate is 60pHZ , Resolution is standard 1366x768 .
  My PC spec is  https://imgur.com/IVrgquX
  This are the screenshots of how this problem looks, I've put red arrows where gloomy shadows are :

The screenshots don't show the effect, which indicates the fault is in the monitor, the video cable or the video card's DAC if you're using VGA analog. (A screenshot is of the image in the video card's screen buffer before it is sent to the monitor, and that is clean.)

What connection is being used? You can try plugging and unplugging the plugs at both ends, to see if there's a tarnished connection giving a bad signal. Beyond that you'll need to confirm just where the problem lies by substitution - a different video lead, different video connection, monitor on a different computer or a different monitor on your computer.

I don't have another monitor unfortunately , I've tried unplugging and plugging back , but its same , will buy a new cable and try with that as soon as I can ... 
Thanx .
