Check out Benq Support Site, though it is far more likely you have the resolution settings incompatable..

First of all for best results you should use the native resolution of your LCD display. Then enable clear type. Look at the link below for help with that.

Any software included with an LCD display will do a couple of things. First of all it will tell Windows what setting are compatible with your monitor. Second, there may be other value added programs that help with things like color matching, temperature settings, etc.

Right click an empty spot on your desktop and choose properties> advanced. Check what resolution and refresh rate you are currently using and see if Windows actually recognizes your model.

It appears your monitor has a 1,280 x 1,024 maximum resolution, which is what you should be using. Set to 60Hz refresh, which should be stable.

If you find text to be small there are other settings to adjust that.

ok well that looked promising.. i turned the CLEAR TYPE setting ON as instructed on that page i was supposed to be able to click NEXT..

but it kept giving me this error:

"Please turn ClearType on before tuning your ClearType settings. The ClearType tuning pages can only be used with Windows XP."

is there somewhere in my computer or in the monitor itself where i can turn on that setting?

hiya, i've done what that link told me to do and it still hasn't fixed the problem.
and things are really inconsistent now too. type face looks ok in some places and not on other sites etc,, and my changing settings seems to have mucked up some other settings now my mail programs are too small to read comfortably and i can't figure out how to change them back. both outlook and yahoo.

While in Firefox go to Tools> options> content. Change font size there.

While in IE go to View> text size. Change to suit.

Clear type requires you to choose from multiple views and pick the one you like best. If things aren't better then redo it.

I can't speak to Outlook because I don't use it.

I suppose your problem could be related to graphic drivers or even a defective monitor. Do you think you could post a screen shot of the blurriness problem.

Nothing I suggested should have made the text smaller. Are you sure you are still using 1280 x 1024?

well it isn't like an obvious blurriness.. it's more that the text is like a bit jagged not like it usually looks? and maybe also this screen is brighter and that isn't helping as it' sall a bit glare-y! i'll try again to darken the screen settings. i have adjusted just now the type size in Firefox. i don't use IE and i'm still puzzled about the changes in Outlook as i can't see why that was altered either.. maybe because i changed a setting in the destop properties which was to do with size of things. but i changed it back as it didn't help anyway.. must've lost some outlook settings. thanks for yr help!

Did you verify you are still using 1280 x 1024? Not running that resolution would certainly make the text more blurry. You do need to save the settings before exiting.
