I recently purchased a VGA Y Splitter to connect both my PC and my Xbox together onto one monitor. A 19 Inch Widescreen Samsung SyncMaster 923nw. Before I had connected my PC's VGA cable into the Y splitter, the picture quality was fine. I connected the monitor's VGA cable and the Y Splitter, the quality of my screen decreased significantly, and there was bad ghosting. So I took it out and connected the VGA cable back into my monitor, and the picture quality was better, but still not that great. The text is fuzzier than it was before, and I haven't seemed to find any resolve. I have updated the drivers of my graphics card and my monitor, yet the fuzzy text is still there. Is there any way that I can get rid of this blurry text problem?

My System

check the cable on the monitor side ,

check if your graphic card is locked tightly with the screw ,

safest is to take out the gfx and re plugging it back in while making sure its

tight again.

you could test the display of your xbox without using the splitter as well to confirm whether its your cable / monitor is faulty

Possibly the monitor, from having the PC/Xbox trying to provide video at the same time.

I had removed the splitter as soon as I seen the ghosting issue and only have the monitor connected to the PC, I have not used the VGA cable and the Xbox together, and have since moved my Xbox back to my TV. I have not tried to check the graphics card yet, shall do that now.
