Question Help-Samsung 931BF

I am having some troubles with my samsung 931bf 2ms TFT monitor.

see it Here: http://www.samsung.com/nz/products/m.../tft/931bf.asp

Now this monitor has an option called RTA-(Response Time Accelerator) and by default it is on (RTA is supposed to get rid of all ghosting by basicly pushing the response time down...)

In games i am recieving weird stuff, idk if you can call it ghosting but here are some pics:

This is my first experience with a lcd screen and idk what to do, i feel stupid

Im running a 6800GS, but got these same problems with the monitor when using it on another comp

In order to play games i must go thrugh the monitor options and turn RTA off every time, as it resets it self to On

I have read that possibly a weak video signal could be causing this but idk.

I googled it and saw that a few others at having troubles like mine, but i have found no solutions yet.

Please give me your insight into this problem,

I rly don't see anything wrong with those pictures but here are a few things you can try. Well, the picture is slightly out of focus, prehaps...

Keep it off, 2 MS response is good enough. ****, 12 MS is good enough.

Update game patch, Direct X, windows and video card drives.

Also you can try screwing around in the video options for the game.

Everything is updated software wise, iv'e screwed with game options but it occurs in all games.

If you look at where the muzzle fire is coming out u will notice idk if u can call it ghosting its more like color bleeding its more obvius in pic 1.

I always have to turn it off maunally every time the monitor is turned on or after long periods of time

and the RTA is supposed to help.....

im leaning that it is a weak Power signal, i have a new psu coming in monday

are you talking about the circular lines around by the muzzle flash?? that looks like a video card settings issue. refresh rate, settings to low, etc. stuff like that normally happens on 640x480 and 800x600 res. power signal? your monitor gets its power from the wall? so i dont see how a psu would help..?
