    How do i get a very sharp text?

    Hello,

    I got an LCD monitors a couple of months ago , but i still use my 800x600 because higher resolutions seemed a little bit blurry.

    First when i bought the LCD monitor ; even the 800x600 resolution was blurry , but i figured out that the "Clear Type" feature that windows use casued the problem , so i removed it and got sharper text. Then i used my screen's buttons to make the text even sharper , but it's still not enough.

    800x600 looks ok , but 1024x768 still isn't sharp enough , so how do i make my display REAL sharp? the images and everything seem clear btw , it's just the text that looks a tiny bit blurry on the edges.

    To get the best results you need to run an LCD at its native resolution. What is the native resolution for the monitor?

    Oh, and this is something you may want to try. It is a ClearType tuner, where you can manually adjust the cleartype settings to get the best looking results.

    I'm afraid that doesn't work. It actually made things worse.

    I checked my Monitor's catalogue and all it says about resolutions is that my resolution has to be set to 1280x1024 before installing the monitor , so i switched to that resolution , but it was HORRIBLE.

    Could be that i'm not used to the resolution yet? because i've never used it as my primary resolution. But it looks good in laptops , so it gotta be my computer

    My monitor - Samsung 172N - has an 'Image Lock' option in the adjustments. I played with it quite a bit when I upped my resolution to 1280 x 960 and it helped quite a bit. It also took getting used to.
