    Monster Ultra 800 HDMI Cable
    Viewsonic 2835M (1920x1200 max resolution)
    Nvidia 8400M GT 256MB Dedicated / 1GB shared
    Sony Vaio Laptop VGN-FZ290
    Vista Ultimate x64

    Nvidia driver (laptopvideo2go.com):


    When using HDMI connection instead of VGA, the font quality is blurred and distorted. I tried at least 4 different brand new hdmi cables and know for sure it is not the cable NOR the laptop NOR the monitor itself. It is a setting somewhere along the line. I've tried this on 2 laptops, 2 monitors (same brand/model), all same issue.

    I set resolution to 1900x1200 and tried 1900x1080 (both 32bit). No normal quality at all. VGA is fine, but I prefer hdmi for higher quality - at least once I get it fixed. I tried 59hz and 60hz, same problem still.

    What could be the cause here?

    Crazy part is, screen shot shows font quality font just fine. But its not at all. I also set monitor input to hdmi as well.
