    Blurry screen

    I run Natty on a Toshiba Sattelite L455-S5975, and have had a blurry screen since the day I installed it. Here's what it looks like (link).

    Though I'm not sure if the screenshot is actually blurry or it just looks blurry to me. If I recall correctly, this did not happen what I had booted from the LiveCD, but only after I had installed it. I run a dual-boot with Windows 7 and Windows 7 still looks as good as always. I've tried a few suggestions from people with similar problems on this forum, but none of them worked. Can anybody help? I'll be eternally grateful, I've been using it like this for a month or so and it's starting to affect my vision.

    A screenshot doesn't capture what you see, or how the display is performing but from here your videocard couldn't be crispier.

    Yeah, that's what I assumed but I thought I'd try.

    Just a note of support - I have exactly the same issue and have had no help from the various suggestions offered. My monitor resolution options only shows 800x600 and 640x480.

    I'll keep watching your post to see if someone clever can solve this issue.

    Re: Blurry screen

    On a TFT or LCD monitor (and I think it applies to all LCD/TFT monitors), fonts always seem a bit blurry (or hazy/irregular) unless your chosen screen resolution matches the monitor's max resolution (or maybe a round factor of it). Perhaps it also gets fixed if you choose a natively supported resolution/aspect ratio.

    @kenworth,
    Assuming you have a TFT/LCD monitor of aspect ratio 16:9, you need a resolution of the same aspect ratio. If you have a different type monitor, please post its details.

    Re: Blurry screen

    I'm trying to use a second monitor in this laptop, it's an LG monitor model w1942s and the resolution is fine, but I get a very blurry image.

    How can I change the settings for the monitor? It used to be in /etc/X11/xorg.conf, but I don't have that file any more. How can I change the VertRefresh range in ubuntu 10.04?

    TIA,

    Pedro
