Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

I have a ViewSonic flat screen monitor. The images on the sign in page are fuzzy and unreadable. I have Windows XP.


Answers :

I would check the connections between the monitor and computer. Also the refresh rate and/or resolution might be wrong. To correct this, you will need to boot your computer in safe mode. (restart computer, right after the computer's logo appears rapidly press the F8 key until a black and white menu appears. Select SAFE MODE) once the computer boots to safe mode, the sign on screen will appear very large. Sign onto the computer once at the desktop, RIGHT CLICK the background and select PROPERTIES. Once the display properties window appears click on the last tab SETTINGS. Here is where you can adjust the resolution. Take the screen resoltution to a low setting. You can always change this later when you boot your computer normally to get a better view. Next click on the ADVANCED button click on the MONITOR tab, usually flat screens operate at a lower refresh rate then CRT monitors. I usually keep my refresh rate to 60 Hertz. Next click on the GENERAL tab. This will allow you to change the DPI setting. I usually keep mine set to 96 DPI. You may want to experiment with this as monitors vary. Once done, click on the APPLY button then OK. Restart the comptuer and see if this has improved your display. You may need to do this several times trying different settings until you get a clear display. If you've exhausted all these steps, try a different monitor or changing the cable. If that fixes the problem then you know you have a bad monitor or cable. Good luck, let me know how it turns out.
