Windows 7: Text Size and Screen Resolution

Text Size and Screen Resolution

So, my resolution is set at the highest it can be at 1080x1920. My text size is set at medium (100%) of the size. There is an option for small, medium, large. The problem I am having is everything on my screen is small. I notice mostly on browsers. I obviously can make the text bigger by using CTRL+, but every time I do that the pictures and graphics are pure blurry. I also have a desktop and this is never a problem. My desktop screen is 1080 but is 21.5 inches. My laptop is only 15.4. Is there any combination of things I can do to make the browser picture bigger and clear?

Lets test with IE. if it works we know its not the monitor. Chrome probably has something similar.

Even in IE its blurry when adjusting that. At 100% where it is clear, it is so small. At anything above 100, the text is clear, but the pictures are blurry.
