it's a few years old now but with a 15.4" display I would think the native resolution would be more in the 1440x900 area. I can't find anything to confirm that though.
Slightly lowered resolution to native shouldn't lead to to a noticeably fuzzy image unless you are just very picky though.
EDIT : yes the native resolution is apparently 1280x800.
A screenshot might help with diagnosing your 'fuzzy' screen.

Well I'm not seeing anything that suggests a burned up video gpu or ram, which is a good thing. In fact I'm not seeing any real corruption at all. Though it looks like cleartype was never set up properly.
This can be done by right clicking the empty space on your desktop and selecting personalize. then on the right click display. On the right side of the window that opens you will see a link titled 'adjust cleartype text' Click that and follow the instructions.
Let me know if that clears things up for you at all.

Hi Maguscreed,

I tried to adjust with the clear type text but no luck.
text is quiet redable.
But the images or pictues are fuzzy or i would say little smugged.

Ah okay so the flower is supposed to be clear, I thought that was just a stylized wallpaper image. The screenshot you provided is the correct resolution for what I read to be the specs of your particular laptop. Is only the wallpaper blurry, or is this happening regardless of the image on the screen?

If this is the case, the system is outputting a clear image and the display is somehow corrupting it. Unfortunately I don't have a frame of reference for troubleshooting this. I only hope the display itself isn't damaged, that's basically grounds for replacing the laptop.

I am at my limit here, I'm primarily software side, and this is beginning to seem a hardware issue. Hopefully someone else will chime in with further support for you.
