Windows 7 out of focus ?

I upgraded my PC to Windows 7 , and now things seem very very slightly out of focus.

After using it a while it gives me a headache, it did the same thing on my old PC when i put W7 on there

Ive still got the same monitor,but my new PC has different graphics card, ive updated the drivers etc.

Anyone else got this problem, and is there a fix ?

I doubt it's the monitor, I'm using dual monitors, one vga and one dvi, both work fine.


Funny how it did the same on my old PC tho using the same monitor ?

My new PC has different graphics to the old one, built in Intel VGA on this one
#13
I can easily return it to Very LOL thats why ive ordered from there, if the new on works i will get one cheaper from elsewhere and send that one back

Have you got drivers installed for your monitor or is it showing plug and play ?
#18
Yeah drivers are installed for the monitor.

Im wondering if its a refresh rate thing, it only shows 60hz , im sure it was 59 before

Product Detected Intel® G33/G31
Current Driver Installed 8.14.0010.1930
Your driver is current.

Some monitors struggle with VGA and even sometimes it can just be a cheap cable that csuses this,Do you have another cable to try . ?.
#22
Last PC was on DVI and had same problems, will see if ive got another cable in theloft
#23
Tried another cable, and cut the 12pin like suggested in another post and still the same :(
#24
Well it sorted , got a cheap card off Amazon and tweaked the settings and its ok now so must have been the onboard video that was causing the problem

Thanks for your help, rep on its way
