Question about Samsung SyncMaster 171S 17" Flat Panel LCD Monitor
all the text is in very bad resolution.Photos OK.
what can I do?
What is the resolution that you are running the monitor at? There are two possible reasons that come to my mind.
1. You are running at a non native resolution. Based on your LCD spec you should run it at 1280x1024 resolution to have very sharp text as you normally expect from LCD's. However if you have set another resolution (say 1024x768) the text is blurred and this is a known issue with LCD's, which unlike a normal CRT monitor will get blurred running at any other resolution :(
2. You have not installed the monitor driver, hence again this limits your resolution and windows only allows you to select a resolution that is non-native (Meaning since the driver file is not there the operating system may not allow selecting the native resolution the monitor should run at). You can find the driver file at the samsung site. Its a common driver file for all LCDs.

To change your monitor's resolution
Right-click the desktop, and then click Properties.
In the Display Properties dialog box, click the Settings tab.
Drag the Screen resolution slider to the left to decrease the resolution of your monitor, making text and pictures appear larger. Or drag the Screen resolution slider to the right to increase your monitor's resolution, making text and pictures appear smaller.
Click Apply to have the new resolution take effect.
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 return to step 3 to try a different resolution.
Microsoft Windows XP changes the resolution to the settings you chose.
