    if in the reproduction of a MOVIE i fill "discomfort" at the eyes in general and particularly in the moving scene in which the image is a bit "confused" (I'm talking about when the cam moving fast and then the view is moving) .. . it more than anything, an effect like trails: during fast moving scenes are framed as objects tended to be confused with each other without maintaining their distinction and was "tiring" with the eye to follow these scenes

    (the monitor is an LG W2486L-PF)

    sounds like the screen was tearing or your streaming a movie and you dont have enough bandwidth

    What do you have the refresh rate set to on the monitor?
    Max is 75Hz so if it's set to 60Hz you could try bumping it up.

    Right click on desktop and go to screen resolution. From there click advanced settings.
    Click on the monitor tab and it will show you the refresh rate.
     
    RoboX says thanks.

    You should always set the refresh rate at the highest you can.
    Do you have the OEM monitor drivers loaded?
    From what I read the monitor should be capable of doing 75Hz. If you are using the default Windows driver (as opposed to the OEM driver) it may be limitting what you can do.

    LG W2486L-PF drivers are installed, ... in the manual it says the refresh rate is 60hz at 1920x1080 (75 only for smaller resolutions)

    Hmmm ... 60Hz should be sufficient for movie playback as it's fine on my monitor.
    What graphics card are you using?

    4870X2, with last monitor (T220) all movie work fine

    it is possible that the cause of the problem is the wrong setting to 59Hz?
    I set 60Hz?

    You really shouldn't notice a difference between the two. Set it at 60Hz just to make sure. If that doesn't do it, the monitor could well be faulty. I had this issue with a Viewsonic monitor once, replacing it fixed the problem.

    may have to untick the option of supporting refresh rates not supported. Thats how I found out my NEC Multisync LCD 1700V supports 75Hz

    This may sound dumb, RoboX, but how close are you sitting to the monitor when watching movies?

    What is the response time? sounds like ghosting and is normal for monitors with a slow response time, theres nothing wrong nor nothing you can do if thats the case.

    Edit, response time seems to be fine (2ms G2G) is this all video sources or just DVD/.AVI etc?

    Try disabling the Catalyst Control Center and see if windows will let you switch to 75hz under screen resolution settings.

    The board in the monitor is defective. Return it for a new one.

    Rampage II Formula Gene
    I7 920
    4GB DDR3

    I dont have warranty :ohwell: and the problem not are evident, not are a "defect" monitor



    P.s. here talk about problem 59Hz http://hardforum.com/showthread.php?t=1466098 ... but I do not know whether the 59Hz entails problems and if the cause of "my" problem
