    Computer monitor issue

    I have two monitors hooked to my computer. The secondary monitor now has faint birds in the lower half- how do I remove them windows 10?

    Thanks.Screenshot_6_1.jpg

    I am not why the pic on the left shows the bird. I only see it on the second monitor.

    I didn't know birds had fainting spells...sorry I havn't encountered your recent predicament. I only use individual computers to produce multiple sites. Unless I have multiple windows open on one pc. I do have cards for dual monitor hook ups but found it more confusing. Hope you get an answer. Possibly google it and find the answer in a pc forum?

    Peter, I'll ask my son-in-law, who is an IT guy if he has any ideas when he comes over today. He's usually pretty good at that stuff.

    The first attempt to remedy ghosting is to get a new video cable. That many times solves the problem. Also what is around the monitor anything that could be causing interference, anything with a magnet can be disruptive, start with that peter

    Pete - Get a Mac. In the unlikely event something odd happens, highly competent techs on the phone in less than a minute and they all speak ENGLISH.

    I just got my 3rd iMac in past 12 years and have had to call AppleCare 3 times. All issues were resolved in 10 minutes or less.

    I read something similar: http://marklovesthis.com/2009/02/25/...t-images-html/

    It could also be coming from a new peripheral that has been hooked up.
