Win7 ClearType problem!

Ok, guys here's the problem, so idk if my video card has to do anything with this, but here's the problem.....

When I go to Personalize > Display >
Adjust ClearTextType and when I turn off "ClearType"
the font of letters on my PC (of folders, of everything that has letters) is kinda dimly and bold. And when I go to Internet, letters over there are just fine.

But when I turn on "ClearType" the letters of my PC (of folders, of everything that has letters) is clear and normal. But the letters on the Internet is same as it was previously on desktop. Dimly and my eyes hurt of reading it.

How can I make it 50:50.... to be normal on both sides. If you understanded me.

I know there have been times when I have stared at the sample text in the ClearType tuner and had trouble deciding which one to choose. This may sound weird, but as an experiment you might try picking your second choice each time and see how you like it.

Screen displays are tough to get just right. What looks good for an hour or two can eventually drive you nuts. (Say - maybe that's what happened to me. )

The only other thing I can think of is to make sure you are using the default fonts for things you can control.

Np, I solved the problem.
I re-installed Win7 all over again, and I think problem was within my monitor.
I restarted his options to fabric default, and after that it got better.

Thanks anyway.
