    i just reinstalled windows xp and hooked up my dual monitors. I took
    my dell m991 out of my basement and plugged it in, and i see that when
    i open anything on my screen the right edge of the is blurry, unless
    something beside the desktop is fuzzy\ blurry if for example on my aim
    buddy list the 1st character in any screen name is fuzzy, but if there
    is an away icon then nothing is fuzzy and if i have another window
    open over the whole screen then nothing is fuzzy, and on the other
    screen like this ever happens thing happens

    just an aside i see if i go to the screen menu and select adjust color
    and switch it from the setting "9300k for general use" to "6500k from
    image management" the whole screen gets really blurry

    any suggestions on how to fix it would be really appreciated

    The difference in brightness is causing an increase in current through
    flyback transformer resulting in decrease of high Voltage which de-focuses
    monitor. I suspect flyback transformer is bad. Play with brightness. Some
    older monitors have focus adjustment in back but not likely. A flyback costs
    ~$50 but new 17" monitor is only $70 or so. If you hear crackling in back,
    you may be able to fix by cleaning dust from back of CRT and around high
    Voltage area but not likely.

    Monitors are cheap, get a new one.
