I connected my Sony 46" Z series to my computer using VGA cable. I have a decent video card (Nvidia 7300 LE). Everything works fine except there are ghost images. I know that they are not from the TV (the TV works fine when connected to cable). I changed a couple settings but couldn't get rid of those. Any suggestions?
Thanks...

(Could the problem be from the VGA connection? The video card has DVI out but the TV has only VGA in. Should I try DVI to HDMI connection?)

The ghosting could be from improper impedance in your analog connection path - connectors, cable, circuits. It should be 75ohms end to end. Try the digital connection and see what happens.

If the VGA connection length is over 12-15 feet, you'll start to see ringing/ghosting.

Thanks a lot for the replies. I'll certainly try the digital connection.
