Hi, thanks for reading and for your support. Also I would like to say thanks to AncientPC for so much information.

I have recently adquired a Dell 2001FP (I live in the South, so this kind of things come a lot of days later than in the North).

Anyway, the problem is that I am experiencing some shimmering(?), flickering(?), or interference when the resolution is 1600x1200. I am using an analog connection, and after adjusting the pixel clock and the phase I have some nice results, but the density of the lines in my screen (fonts, for example) are now thinner, so I am not comfortable yet.

Has anyone of you suffered this sort of things?
Any advice will be appreciated.
Thanks again for reading, and thanks for your support.

From The South.

Have you got ClearType (http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;306527&sd=tech) enabled?

If that isn't the problem, try a DVI card instead of analog. I couldn't tell the difference myself, but some people have reported they can...
