Welcome to Bleeping Computer, Njabulo!

 

If your screen looks like there is ink on it, then it is your monitor, and your graphics are fine. Since you are on a desktop, the cheapest way to fix this is get a cheap monitor on eBay. Right now, I am using a 1280x1024 monitor that has been working awesome for a long time now and got it for only $35 on eBay. Take a look:

Sounds like your resolution is 800x600. Try one of the monitors in the link I showed you. Most of them are 1280x1024, which looks pretty good and is pretty much square.

It could be your monitor,however,since you just installed Windows 7 and the problem started after that,it could be your graphics card as well- do you have the specs on your video card?

 

Also- do you have a newer monitor(LCD) and not one of the old CRT type?

We need some background on this machine.  Is it new?  Is it old with Windows 7 installed?

 

Has this equipment (computer and monitor) ever worked?

 

I'm guessing it is an issue with the video card drivers and I would attempt to update those before spending money on hardware.
