I have two monitors, a 3.5 year old Dell Trinitron 21" CRT and a new 17" Dell LCD. The 21" came with my old Dell computer, the LCD came with the new one, but I've reversed them because the new computer is faster, bigger, etc and designed for PS, which is where the Trinitron CRT should be. The LCD is fine for web surfing, email and all the business stuff. The new LCD looks great on the old computer with no modification of settings. The odd thing is the old CRT looked great with the old computer (and its video card) but immediately looked terrible (low contrast, not sharp, too bright) upon being attached to the new computer (even though the drivers on the new computer and video card do recognize the old monitor model). Even adjusting the monitor itself can't bring it back into being even close to useable for anything but image selection, much less actual editing and color correction. Any thoughts?
