Im using my LCD as a monitor but the text all looks slightly blurry. The vista dpi scaling doesn?t really work as it just makes the fonts huge. Ive tried changing dpi but that dosent seem to help. Im using DVi leads. Watching movies is all good but just any writing is almost unreadable?

Depending on the leads you our using, if your using a cheap lead try changing it to a oxygen free one this could solve your problem.

My picture is blurry,and words are blurry,what do i do

A blurry image on a high-definition LCD TV is typically the result of a mismatch between the TV's resolution capabilities and the resolution of the signal that is coming from connected devices, such as a DVD player or satellite TV receiver. Typically, blurry pictures result when a peripheral device connects to the TV through nonHD cables and jacks.

If your TV's connected devices do not have HD capability, they will transmit content to the TV in standard, analog signals. These types of signals are only capable of resolutions of up to 640 by 480 pixels. Pixels, for picture elements, are the tiny dots that make up the screen image. Most HD LCD TVs are capable of resolutions of as low as 1,366 by 768 pixels and as high as 1,920 by 1,080 pixels. When this big of a discrepancy occurs, the images display on the TV scaled, stretched and blurry.

I need to reset the screen resolution from 480 dpi to 1080 dpi

The TV does not have resolution setting adjustment, it works the same way as the PC monitor which the resolution is done on the PC, same for TV. If you feed it with 480p signal, it will display 480p, if you feed it with 1080I it will display 1080i. The video source dictates the TV display resolution.
What kind of video sources are you feeding the TV with?

Or, just make sure to use caps with low ESR, 105c, high ripple current and long life rating such as PANASONIC FM or FC series.
Please leave rating if it helps.

You need to adjust the resolution settings of your computer. This information was found on the Dynex website: ( in the frequently asked questions section on page 9. To adjust the resolution on Windows Vista: 1.Click the Windows icon to open the Start menu. 2.Select and click on Control Panel. 3.Click on Appearance and Themes. 4.Click Personalization. 5.Click Display Settings. 6.Select Monitor 2. 7.Drag the screen resolution slider to the left to decrease the resolution of your monitor, making text and pictures appear larger or drag the slider to the right to increase the resolution of your monitor, making text and pictures appear smaller. 8.Click Apply to have the new resolution take effect. 9.If the Monitor Settings dialog box appears, look at your display. If you like the new resolution, click Yes. If you do not like the resolution, click No and adjust the resolution using the screen resolution slider. 10.Click OK. If this solution does not work for you .You can copy the above web address and paste it into your address bar. There you will find the support section. You can use the support e-mail to talk to the customer support people about the problem you are having connecting your computer to the television.You can also call the customer support at this telephone number 1-800-305-2204 between the hours of 7am and 12 am CST.

Blurry picture when hooked up to direct tv.Why?

try lowering the sharpness on your tv, because if the sharpness is to high it will make NonHD objects look blurry, also try changing the input cable or type of input.

Black parts of screen looks light light is shining on it

Your LCD TV uses backlights and they can be slightly visible when viewing a letterbox movie.  However, if the light is really bleeding into the black, there could be a problem, but mosty this is common.

refresh rate, likely
try to adjust to a compatible rate. the monitor manual will give you its compatible rates. the video card should have that rate available. if not, you may damage the monitor with the wrong rate.
stop and try another monitor that has a refresh rate available on your video card.
