Distorted font!

OS XP Home HP Omnibook xe4100

With the help of members yesterday, I was finally able to reinstall XP.
All programmes etc are working well.

Whilst I am not over worried, I am yet curious as to why the font is not sharp and clear.
Some of the letters in any given word contain a mixture of bold, or partly bold and some with shadow and only a few of the letters are crisp and clear.

Even when typing into MS Word, the appearance is the same!
Any members ever come across this before?

Using the treak thingy, there was just a slight improvement.
But your link put me on the right tract. The laptop is getting old.
I did a test on my dad's LCD (fairly new)and it was perfect font.

I shall have to put up with font and twist the family's arm for a new laptop... maybe next year.

Thank you for your help.
