    What causes text distortion to occur on my LCD, as shown in the attachment?

    It seems to have recently started this, and is somehow associated with vertical scrolling. Sometimes when the text is distorted, I can scroll up or down, and clear up the distortion, and then scroll up or down and it's back.

    Are there some settings that I need to change, or some other solution? I am running Win 7.

    Hello,

    It looks like a resolution problem.
    Is there a scaling factor set in your browser?
    Try typing CTRL+0 when the browser is active.

    Check that you are running your windows screen resolution at the same pixels as your monitor native (hardware) resolution.

    Sometimes monitors have an "autoadjust" button/mode too, that will help tighten up the pixel aliasing.

    Another thing to check is your video driver. Outdated or corrupted video drivers can cause a plethora of issues with display appearance and responsiveness. What operating system are you running? Some more information on your computer would be helpfull also, like:

    --Make and model if it's a commercial PC like Dell, HP, etc . . .

    --or what make and model motherboard if it's a custom build.

    --Make and type of video card (if not using onboard video)

    Another thing to try is the use of ClearType fonts. It is recommended to use them with LCD. Here is what M$ says about it:

    I am not using LCD at the moment, so I don't need it. Since you are using LCD, you need it.

    Please select the recommended resolution in Windows settings.
    Update your graphic card driver to the latest version.
    I hope it helps.

    Try CTRL+ and CTRL-, maybe you changed zoom settings by random.

    I had this issue despite matching resolutions going from VGA to HDMI on a cheapy monitor. It's really annoying, check crystal as mentioned before and resolutions, or if it's really driving you batty a different monitor.
