Downloaded W10 last night which took nearly 4 hours but fortunately all went well & there were no hitches with the download. But the screen look wasn't as clear as it was in W7, it had a very slight blurry look. No mater what I tried to eliminate the problem I had no luck. Plus there was too much in W10 that I would ever use as I am by no means I am a top dog when it comes to computers.

So I rolled my laptop back to W7 and again no problems occurred and the screen was back to a bright & clear screen as it was before the upgrade. So for what I use my computer for I think I will stick with W7.

That sounds like it was a display drivers issue to me, or it could have been a wrong screen resolution had been set by Windows.

 

For LCD and LED displays, the stated resolution of the monitor is the best one to operate it at; anything else will give rise to exactly what you saw.

Windows should have detected it and set it up correctly, so that may not have been the case.

 

Whenever I've used an LCD/LED display at a different resolution to that specified by the manufacturer, I've typically had a slight blur to the display.

 

Could be wrong, but it's possible...

I would go with that as well. It's not uncommon to see display drivers issues after upgrading Windows. All you have to do is to install the latest version of the drivers in order to get your resolution and look back to normal.

I agree with Angoid.  I had similar issues and reinstalled my driver and rebooted to get my machine to display properly.  Unfortunately I had audio issues and my machine when back to 8.1 until Windows 10 is a bit more mature.

Thank you Condobloke for your reply. And the other members  too who replied. I agree with with your idea re drivers. I thought that may have been the case  myself but at my age I only read online news papers etc on my W7 machine  & use hotmail plus play the games that came with W7. So that's me

Like to know what part of OZ you are from Condobloke as I was born way out in the middle of the Nulla Nulla myself. Pm if you wish.

Again thanks fellahs for your input they are always appreciated.
