    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 ?

    Have you tried turning cleartype off. ?.

    Did you take your glasses off while you were installing it?

    Update your GFX card drivers to the latest.

    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 . ?.

    Last PC was on DVI and had same problems, will see if ive got another cable in theloft

    Tried another cable, and cut the 12pin like suggested in another post and still the same

    Original Poster

    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
