Just started up a 2.3 Ghz G5 DP mac with OS X 10.4. My Nokia Multigraph 447Za monitor is fuzzy and Icannot find a resolution and refresh rate that eliminates the problem. My previous mac with 10.4 detected the monitor and automatically installed the driver. All help will be appreciated.

Have you looked within the monitor's built in settings to see if you can resize or move the picture around so that it is no longer fuzzy? Some LCD monitors have a button or setting called Auto Resize where it automatically adjusts to the incoming signal's size.

This looks like a CRT.

What resolution and refresh rate are you running it at? Are you using a DVI-VGA adapter?

Oh. Well, it kinda applies. Some of the higher end CRTs have a focus ability where they can refocus the screen. That may correct the fuzziness.

Thanks for responding. I am using a DVI-VGA adapter. I've tried a variety of resolutions and refresh rates but have not found a successful one. Could it be the video card?

Your monitor should run at 1280x1024@70hz.
Have you tried using it with another computer? Is it still blurry?

I had a pair of matching 21" monitors that eventually went blurry, i assume it's an age thing. They weren't really bad and I only noticed when I put a 3rd display (lcd) on my computer.
