Yesterday is was sharpe. Today I switch on and the desktop is not sharpe and slightly on the grainy side. I restarted hoping it might improve but no joy. The Nvidia driver is on Standard not 3D. Any ideas please ?

Right-click on clear area of desktop, then on Properties and then on Settings, make sure Colour quality is set at Highest (32Bit).
