Windows 7: contrast washed out at 1920x1080 vs. 1650x1050

contrast washed out at 1920x1080 vs. 1650x1050

I've got win7x64 pro with an Nvidia card (asus geforce 210) and 2 monitors, one which is my acer TV. If I set the resolution to 1920x1080 I get washed out results and text is quite difficult to see across the room. If I set it to 1650x1050, then the results are better (not just slightly bigger).

I doubt it's the tv, since I also have a TIVO hooked up to it and it has no issues at 1080p. I have a win8 system as well in another room on a different tv, but using the same graphics card, and it too exhibits this.

Here's a snapshot of the two,

At either resolution I can play 1080p .mp4 videos just fine. It's only that washed out look of the text and window title bar that's a problem.

Note, I do use an enlarged font. I've set it to 150% so I can see it across the room (the make it easier to read what's on your screen panel)

Any way to get better contrast at 1920x1080? Do you think this is my card's fault (I have latest drivers).

to me it looks like the auto adjust needs pressing, it almost looks like the resolution is out of phase with the monitor, if you have auto adjust functionality, i would give it a tap and see what the results are.
