I recently bought a proview 14' tft monitor Everything on the screen looks blurred...is there anything I can do to sharpen the display image up ie. certain fonts etc. I'm running windows 2000pro athlon 1700xp processor onboard 8mb shared graphics 512mb ram Monitor is set to 800x600 16 bit high colour Somone suggested windows cleartype so I looked at that but it is only for windows XP Any ideas would be a help..... Thanks
When you change the resolution everything will shrink down, as it is fitting more onto the screen at once. If you look at this website for example, on 800x600 I have to scroll to the right a bit to fit the entire width of the page on (the bit with the poll and adverts on), but in 1024 x 768 I can fit the entire width on.
Yes, that is normal. With the higher resolution your display should be much sharper and cleaner to read.
Unfortunately with a TFT screen they work best at their native resolution and this can sometimes be a little on the small side but if you reduce the resolution to enlarge your display you lose out on clarity of text/graphics.
CRT screens still have the edge here because you can alter the resolution over a wide range to suite your eyes with very little loss of quality.
