I have bad news for you.

The monitor you bought (Great Price by the way) is working exactly as designed. The problem is the 640 x 480 resolution. Almost all internet content now days is scaled for either 800 x 600 or 1024 x 768 resolution. This is why every time you open a page you have to pan both left and right and up and down to see the entire page.

LCD monitiors are designed for a fixed resolution unlike CRT (TV Tube) monitors that can display different resolutions with equal clarity. This is why when you go to a higher resolution the screen is almost impossible to read.

Since your optimal resolution is 640 x 480, that is the only resolution that displays clearly. That is great for a TV, but sorely lacking as a computer monitor. It is also why the monitor was such a good price (a definite case of you get what you pay for here). So the unfortunate answer is that the monitor will never be satisfactory when used on the internet.

How do I reset resolution to 1080p?


You cannot set the resolution at the TV, the video signals set the resolution, if the TV is fed with 720i/p, it will display 720i/p,
1080i in = 1080i display (if it can support it), it works the same as your PC, you set the resolution at PC not at the monitor.

PC to TV HDMI poor text quality


You get best picture on any LCD monitor or TV when the PC video resolution is set to the native resolution of the monitor or TV. You need to look at your user manual to find out what the native resolution is in PC mode.

Horrible fuzzy display on my external lcd tv monitor - sadness


You need to change the resolution and colour quality under graphics properties on second monito. Put the settings back under the advanced tab, your just pushing new monitor over its limits. You dont need to have the same resolution set as your PC screen. Hope this works for you.

How do i use my tv as my pc monitor. so i can watch movies from my computer ?


The problem may be the resolution. Your TV will run 1920x1080. You might try changing the resolution to that and then try connecting to TV again.

Fuzzy picture with DVI input from NVIDIA PC Card


I have the same TV and I found that increasing the DPI percentage (Dots Per Inch) you could reduce the fuzzy stuff, but in its still no where close to being the same quality as VGA. Hope that helps.
