I have a Dell M991 Monitor. It’s a box-style CRT display. 19", I believe, although I haven’t measured it.
It seems to be pretty capable – refresh rate is supposed to go up to 160 Hz. although I currently have it running at 75 Hz. I’ve set it for 1024x768 resolution, 32-bit color.
I use a Radeon 9800 video card.
The monitor display is set for “Dell M991 on Radeon 9800 series” which certainly sounds like what I want.
Images look great.
Small text, however, seems…fuzzy. Poorly focused, as if seen through Vaseline or something.
I thought it might be my eyes so I asked someone to verify my impression.
I would like to change the setting myself; I’m loath to ask for help. But when I go into the fairly complex “settings” reached through right-mousing the desktop, I see all kinds of tabs and menus – probably I’m seeing display AND video card menus – I don’t see anything called “text crispness” or even “sharpness”.
Any suggestions would be most welcome.
