Hello All
Hope somebody might be able to help. After our home was broken into and my old trusty laptop was pinched, I was given a brand new Toshiba Sat Pro A100 by my insurance company and to my horror this came with Vista Business installed and that’s when my problems started.

The Fonts all have jagged edges and not smooth, I produce number plate and use the Laser Charles Wright Font but now I have this problem can anybody suggest why this is happening. This not only happens in my Number Plate Software (which is LG Signs) but also in Word, Photoshop in fact everything and is really causing me some grief. I have contacted Microsoft Support I have contacted Toshiba and I am not getting anywhere

Many Thanks
Phil

Right click on the desk top. Choose personalize from the shortcut menu. Click effects in the appearance settings dialog box where you will get different options for smoothing.

After .. from the shortcut menu insert - click on windows color and appearance. At the bottom of the screen click on appearance properties for more color options. Now carry on. Sorry about that.

If you are getting a "pixelated" display in the laptop, it might be due to the graphics driver not being installed properly. Check in Device Manager to see if that indicates a problem - yellow "question" or "exclamation" mark. Also, if Toshiba supplied a Drivers Disk, or there is a Drivers folder on the Recovery Disk, try reinstalling the Graphics Drivers. It is possible that Vista is trying to use a generic graphics driver.

I had a similar problem with a new Sony Vaio, I updated the drivers (online NVDIA) and all was cured.
