The day before yesterday I got onto my computer & EVERYTHING was larger than normal. I then went to the Settings in Display Properties & put the Screen Resolution to 1152 X 864 pixels like I had it on. (I didn't change the resolution to the larger size before & my husband says he didn't either) After I changed the resolution to what it was normally, All of the text was blurry!!! I have a HP vs17e moniter (it's a flat screen), so I reset it to the factory settings, but that did not help. I went into effects and changed the font smoothing to ClearType, that helped a little but not a lot. I also downloaded something called Clear Type Tuning from Microsoft, but that didn't do any good either.

I messed around with the resolutions & set it at 1280 X 1024. It made the text not as blurry, but the smaller text still seems a little blurry to me. (My husband says its not but he doesn't see very good anyway, & told me that it was me, but the current book I am reading text is fine).

Does anyone know what may be going on???

Please help me.

You might try to update your graphics card or chip (if onboard). Also might try another monitor if possible
You might want to post your machine specs. it would help

Is it possible to test your monitor on another computer that has a "clear" display to make sure that the monitor itself is not failing?

What kind of video card do you have?

Why not try the following :

Remove all drivers for this screen via Add/Remove programs.
Go to START than select turn off AND put your mouse in such a position that you only need to klick reboot.Disconnect the monitor If you hear the famous signal that it is starting up again, connect the monitor and wait until you have logged on.Have the CD ready and as soon as it asks for it put it in and install the drivers and see whether you are "back to normal ".
