I am having a problem with text. Certain individual text has a red ghost (as I call it) beside the original black text. For example the lower case
letter ( l ) would have a red lower case ( l ) very close to and on the left side of the original black ( l ). It seems exclusive to ( i and l ). I
cannot show you an exact copy of the problem because it will not transfer to any other medium. My OS is Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium service pack
( 1 ). My PC is a P6720f. I have added an NVIDIA GeForce GT 430 Video Adapter and I have ( 2 ) monitors connected. This issue happens on both
Monitors. I have removed the video card and used the integrated card that came with the computer and still have the issue. I have also updated all the
video drivers. I tried using Aero themes and that did help somewhat but did not resolve the issue. I then tried adjusting the Clear Type text and was
able to get the ghosting down to a minimum but it is still there. If I disable Clear Text the problem disappears but the text is very hard to read.
With the Clear Type disabled I went to Window 7 Basic and changed the text settings and the text still looked terrible. I have researched this issue
extensively and have not been able to resolve it. In itself the problem could be acceptable but I have very bad eyesight and when I enlarge the text
the issue becomes extremely more evident.
Thank you for your time.
The issue appears mostly in dialogue boxes and in some web pages.
