Windows 7: Fonts problems in Windows 7

My current TV also only has one HDMI slot so I have an HDMI switch that I have my computer, cable box and DVD plugged into, then one cable to the TV.

I have to use the remote for the HDMI switcher to switch to the right input when I want to switch from TV to computer or DVD. BUT, I get a full 1920x1080 desktop on the TV and it's very sharp!

So far I have been using the VGA receptacle with the regular VGA cable I was using before installing the new card. Now I have switched the connection to the DVI outlet using an adaptor which allows to use the same VGA cable on the DVI terminal.
By doing so, I have noticed a marked improvement in the clarity of the fonts and also, I have been able to push the resolution to 1400 X 768. The problem seems solved, but I wonder if I could have an even better display quality by using an HDMI cable. If this is possible, I need to know how to make the connections..More specifically, how can I connect an HDMI cable to the DVI outlet on the Video card Is there an adaptor, I suppose? The NVIDIA package did contain a DVI-VGA adaptor, but not a DVI-HDMI.

Thank you for your help.

Are you still running with fontsize "100% - normal"?

Have you at least given "125% - medium" a try, to see how it looks?

While there may be a DVI to HDMI adapter out there, I doubt that will be any better than what you have with the DVI to the TV now (That would be more for TVs that had HDMI but no DVI/VGA input). So I think you might be maxxed out with the setup you have now if 1400x768 is the highest in the list (That list is provided by your TV through the DVI connector).

However, if you upgrade your video card in the future it will certainly have an HDMI output on it and then hooking that to an hdmi switch, then to your TV would probably look better, maybe even higher resolution (IF your TV is 1080I/P that is, you can then probably get 1920x1080).
