Question about Computers & Internet
Well, David, I would think possibly the problem is that, as you suspect, the monitor is not capable of rendering the higher display settings. If you can set your software to the higher settings, that doesn't mean the software is not functioning properly, and I'm thinking the user manual for the monitor will explain the monitor settings, if any are manual, and you will have to address the monitor's menu through any buttons on the monitor. Another thing you can try to obtain a crisper display, is a setting I found one time is the "high contrast" setting (go to the Accessories Folder and Ease of Access Center and set up High Contrast. It helps some people, but may not really solve your resolution problem. Your manual should be close enough, but try to see if it has provisions to increase it's resolution or temperature settings. In the "older days", there was a slightly different resolution setting that had only one parameter, the "color temperature" setting, if I remember correctly. That was the way they changed the sensitivity of the tube. You can select different settings, and observe the effect, and hopefully improve your display. Good luck!

Drivers for monitors are usually only colour matching profiles
You didn't say what operating system you have so its difficult to give specific advise.
However if it is windows based you should be able to right click on a blank area of screen and call up the properties etc for your display.
I would be looking at the ADVANCED tab OR one that may be specific to your ATI card.
Double check is you also have the ATI programs installed in your programs list as that too is another way to get to the card specific functions.
the native resolution for most LCD is 1680 x 1050 so watch out and try not to go above that as you may end up with your display telling you that it's "out of range"
You may also want to visit the ATI site and get the latest drivers and applications for your card from there FIRST.
Some earlier LCD's did have resolution restrictions BTW
If you can try the display on another computer to verify the quality of display and if it is fuzzy or blury on that coputer too you may want to think about a new one.
Those are youre starting points
