I just bought a Dell 2001 FP LCD monitor and have it connected via DVI to my video card. It looks great, no dead pixels that I can see so far. The only problem I have is that the recommended screen resolution of 1600 x 1200 is just too small for my eyes and my wife's eyes.

When I change the resolution to 1280 x 1024, the font size is much better but it's a little blurry. This is my first LCD monitor (had a 19" CRT before this) and I don't understand why anything but the recommended resolution is not sharp.

Is there a solution to this, short of returning this LCD monitor and finding one that works well at 1280 x 1024? My video card is a BFG GeForce 6800 OC (AGP 8X/4X).

Thanks for your help.

1024/768 is pretty good for us old folks. Google windowsxp powertoys and download clear type tuning. That should clear it up for you. Check to, see if the monitor has a sync setting to sync it to your system. Also, if you right click on a blank area of the start menu and choose properties and then customize you can change to larger icons if need be.
Spike's advice: Backup your data routinely.
