    I bought a brand new 19" Widescreen Viewsonic Optiquest Q191wb LCD monitor today to replace my old broken 17" BenQ LCD. After connecting it on, I found out that all the text (ex. on a web page) are all blurry and unclear. I do have a rather bad PC (the video card is integrated with the motherboard), but nothing was wrong with my old LCD, which has a lower resolution and slower response time. Is this because of my computer and is it because of the monitor?

    ehhh.....idk; maybe ur just not 'used to it' yet...?


    ...cuz I recently bought an LCD to replace my old crappy HP CRT monitor becuz of space confinements; but I remember when I first plugged it in; I thought that the text looked a little burry; but if I was able to see for myself JUST how blurry your text is; I'd prolly be able to tell you if it was some kind of abnormal behavior or not.....


    .....but one thing is; did you tweak the settings on the LCD to get it to it's max capabilities??? cuz I remember after tweaking mine when I first got it; the text began looking much sharper; and I was able to get better brightness and contrast out of it....


    ...but really man; I'm actually puzzled on this one...o_O
