Thread: Display fuzzy

  1. #1

    Default Display fuzzy

    I installed OS 10.3 recently. Everything's (almost) fine except: the display is pretty fuzzy (fonts and graphics). Is this a general problem of OS with LCD displays? I had OS before on a desktop computer and didn't have the problem.
    I have an ATI (RS 1000 4336) graphic card.
    Thanks in advance!

    That's typical of LCD displays in general when run at other than their
    native resolution. I have a 1440x900 display that shows a few fuzzy
    stripes in the vertical at the default 1024x768 resolution selected by the
    installer - enough of a nuisance that I prefer the 800x600 screen for
    installs. Once I get the chance to select the final video resolution
    and/or get the native Nvidia drivers installed the fuzzies go away. Much
    more noticeable if the resolution you select is higher than the native
    resolution of the LCD panel.
