Change the resolution to 1280x1024 if it's a 17" or 18" panel and the sharpness of display will astound you.

Can be quite tricky sometimes finding the correct setting for these monitors. If you have installed all the latest drivers for everything including the monitor driver, right click on the desk top, select properties, settings and advanced. Instead of clicking on the graphics adaptor, click on monitor and see if there is an option to change the refresh rate.

done that none the wiser do you think these monitor ie lcd have lower refresh rates microsoft done a update for it too no better seems on first view cut down on 90%of desk space but for a lot of money

You won't notice any difference between 60 Htz and 75Htz on a TFT display. 60Htz is fine. The most important thing with a TFT is to run it at the correct native resolution, anything lower and the display will suffer, quite a bit in some instances.

Change your resoltion to the display's native one which as Djohn say's is 1280 x 1024.

Yes, the higher the resolution the smaller the text/graphics but they will be sharp and clear.

This is one of the very few problems of a TFT display, move away from the native resolution and it will deteriorate, more so in some models than others.
