Sharpness tool / Nvidia GTX 285 / some tricks

Hello guys.
I'm looking for some tools which give me the option to enable the sharpness om my lcd tv
My videocard is GTX 285 and there is no option for sharpness. My LCD TV ( 32 inch full HD ) got this option but i cant acces it because i rename it the HDMI port to "pc"
If i leave it HDMI without to rename, i can acces the sharpness, but whatever i do, the text looks crap.
With this HDMI option, set to "PC" the text looks great, but i only want to reduce a bit the sharpness.
Is there some tools / thir party apps /software / for that ?!
Thanks in advance.

I found a solution for the text, at least on Mozilla Firefox. But not for Windows Explorer.
With an addon like this :
Mac OSX Font Rendering for Windows Based Browsers - userstyles.org
everything looks much much better
I wish i could find a solution like that, for Windows 7, but i think thats nearly impossible
Did someone here try this ?[GDI++ Alternative] Smooth Fonts Like Mac in Windows [GDIpp] - YouTube
Thank you.

Try:
Control Panel -> Appearance and Personalization -> Adjust ClearType Text (Under "Fonts")
then follow the instructions.

First try setting the sharpness on the TV to zero. This enhancement is generally for less than perfect signals coming into the set. A signal coming out of the HDMI port on a GPU is superior to almost anything out there. Try that and let us know the results. There are a few other things that can be done, but start there.

Thanks for your advice.
Did you read my first post on this thread ?
I try to explain again :
My LCD TV i use it as a pc monitor, with a cable HDMI-DVI.
The input HDMI 1, i rename it to PC, on the tv menu.
It looks much better now ( text, fonts ) but i cant understand why i have no acces to SHARPNESS / TINT / COLOURS + a lot of options from Advanced Control.
If i leave only HDMI without rename it PC, i can access all of them, but the text looks horrible.
Is there a trick to let me acces those 3 options + other ones from Advanced Control, after the HDMI is set / renamed to PC ? In this case ( HDMI as pc mode ) the text / letters / looks awesome and i could access / modify some sharpness / colors / tint , if i want.
Should i try to go into Service Menu, to see if i can change some menu options ? I know is danger, i can lose the warranty, or damage the TV
But if i know thats working, id give it a try. I need to access some options after the HDMI is as pc mode, especially Sharpness function.

Yes I did, since you did not specify which way you went on the sharpness scale, I have recommended setting it to zero. Leave the settings on the HDMI input at the factory settings, other than the sharpness and report back.

Actually, after a bit of research, for Samsung, the best setting is the "PC" setting, which you say you have already selected. I am sorry for not realizing you had a Samsung.

Have you tried setting the sharpness within the Nvidia control panel?

I do not have Samsung.
In the Nvidia control panel this function doesent exist on my videocard which is GTX 285.

I think that you will be restricted to your findings with the TV set to PC. I will check on something later for you and post back, could be tonight. But as far as changing anything further in the TV, the "PC" setting is an optimized setting for using the TV as a monitor. You should not "need" to change anything beyond that in the TV.
