Default Fuzzy/Flicker monitor

My CRT monitor seems to be very fuzzy. Does the graphics card have anything to do with this or is my monitor worn out? I only have a 32 MB
card.

check out your monitor refresh ratright click desktop > properties > settings > advanced

and click the monitor tab, ther you'll see refresh rate mentioned,

and see if the check box beside " hide modes that monitor cannot display" are checked..
then choose highest rate (typical will be 75-85 Hz)

and see if it stopped flickering.

how old is your monitor ? what kind of monitor do you have ? Most monitors that are fuzzy are usually old and are in need of adjustment or replacement . The fuzzy is usually caused by the focus control needing to be reset to factory specs. this is " NOT " something you should attemt unless you know what you are doing ..it can lead to an electical shock DO NOT ATTEMPT TO DO THIS ..

Yeah thanks a lot, the degauss seemed to work some what. Would any speakers have anything to do with the flickering?

Yes, remove any speakers. They can make your screen turn purple.

speakers to close will give you a lot of funny colors every where
but wont cause a flicker. that can be refresh rate ! refresh rate can cause a lot of different things to happen , like rolling screen , dual screen , and a load of other things
