Windows 7: Windows 7 pro fuzzy fonts in all applications

Windows 7 pro fuzzy fonts in all applications

Hi everyone strange problem. I turned on my computer Fujitsu box Windows 7 Pro 4GB

Now all the text is fuzzy and I can not sharpen it up. Looks like edges are a rough or smudged

So far I have tried font smooth edges, DPI setting and that text tune thing, tried the resolution and have updated the Intel HD drivers

I have not installed anything in months and nothing has changed, any ideas, please?

I have tried adjusting the monitor and replaced the VGA lead

Anything I open the text is fuzzy

Hi John Motice,

Try this:

1. Click the start button (Microsoft Logo bottom left of screen)
2. Type into the search box: Adjust the appearance and performance of Windows
4. Uncheck Smooth edges of screen fonts
5. Restart computer
6. If fonts still fuzzy
7. 1-2 again, check Smooth edges of screen fonts
8. restart computer

Googling your issue seems to be a plethora of suggested fixes, none appear to fix the problem. I haven't suggested any of them except the aforementioned.

If you can't figure it out, review Shawn Brink's tutorial, maybe a Repair Install would work.

Perhaps your graphics card is failing.

Do you have another graphics card or does your motherboard have onboard graphics?
