    After recently switching to Windows 7 from xp after doing a reformatting on my hard drive, text and pictures look blurry and hard to read. I have gotten all the drivers for my monitor and video card as well. My current resolution is 1680x1050 and is the native resolution for my monitor. I honestly have no idea what happened since I've never had these problems on xp before. Any help would be greatly appreciated.


    Current Card: Nvidia Geforce 550
    Current Monitor: VA2026w ViewSonic

    ClearType may not be enabled, or may need adjustment. ClearType can be accessed in Control Panel > Appearance & Personalization > Display > Adjust ClearType text.
