    I had a new hard drive put in my laptop today and I notice when I came home that my fonts and words are looking fuzzy. What could cause this?
    I also miss my tabbed browsing for Windows XP Pro that I had- how can I go upgrade back to that?
    Thanks!:confused:

    When you reloaded Windows on the new hard drive, did you reload the video (and all other) drivers?

    Your symptoms suggest that you need to set the resolution of the video to match that of the screen, if you run the resolution lower than the screen resolution, it will look fuzzy.
