Running windows 7, Not sure what other information might be needed.


I've attached a video as it helps to show the issue better then I could explain it.


But the problem that I just started to notice today on multiple sites, Both Chrome and Firefox tested is a white scrolling of letters that follows text It's almost like lag but not something I've ever seen.


In the youtube video attached it's most noticeable on the Black Los Angeles Dodgers. It's that whitish yellow text that appears slightly above the intended text when scrolling.


The monitor is an older Planar PX 2710MW.


It is the first warmer day so maybe the heat is affecting it.


Has anyone seen this? I fear the monitor is dying.




Thanks In advance!

it is an 8yr old monitor.....


monitor back then had poor refresh rates and you probably didn't notice it back in the day.


now with comparison with all the new tv's and monitors you can't help but noticing the lag in picture from the slower refresh abilities.


buy a new monitor it will solve your problems.


you might try bumping up to a setting that has a 76hz refresh rate and see if it makes a difference.

Been using the monitor for 8 years then...It was drastically noticeable today. I'll try the 76hz setting though. Thanks!

I wound up here because I had the same problem with a brand new monitor. HP VH24Oa, released in 2017. Just bought it a month ago. My issue was resolved by going to Image Control in the OSD and changing the Response Time back to default. I don't know what this setting actually does, but it has no effect on refresh rate. This setting might not be on your monitor, but maybe it helps you pinpoint the issue a little better.
