My CRT is very dull
I recently acquired a mostly matching set of components for a Dell Dimension 4100 desktop. Nothing too unique, P3, 512mb ram, 40gb hard drive.
The Dell CRT it came with isn't performing too great, though. The first thing I noticed is that it's extremely dull. Like, at 100 brightness, it's barely visible in an indoors environment. Then I realized the Bliss background in XP has terrible contrast. The sky looks fine, and you can see some of the brighter parts of the grass on the hill, but the darker areas are totally black and indistinguishable.
And did I mention that everything is fuzzy? Really really fuzzy.
My main question is, do CRT monitors go bad with time, and does it resemble this? Or am I just being dumb and don't know how to set my monitor up correctly?
