Dell U2711 monitor - pixelated and blurred text
  

Hi Guys,

I just bought a new Dell U2711 monitor.

I have it set up with 2560 x 1440 through DVI and while the resolution is correct (everything proportioned correctly), small writing/items appear blurred, even pixelated. I am currently writing this with google chrome zoomed in just so i can see what i am writing.

i have uninstalled ATI Catalyst and reinstalled. rebooted etc. cant understand it.

My gfx card is "HIS ATI Radeon HD 4850 iCooler IV 1024MB GDDR3 PCI-Express Graphics Card"

also, i am running extended screen onto a 22'' LG monitor. the 22'' monitor is crystal clear via VGA. also runs crystal clear in isolation from the 27'' via vga and dvi. that rules out the cables.

i also want to rule out the screen because i purchased 2 samsung 24'' monitors prior to this dell and got same issue and sent them back think it was the monitors.

any help would be great!


Ben

I think that the maximum resolution of that monitor is 2560x1440 and therefore you should plan on using it at the max resolution to really see the potential of that display. Normally running a non-native res wont prosper for this kind of monitor, setting it at 2560*1440 everything will be much tighter. Since you have already resolved this issue, you can even try the suggestions given by me or good to go on.
