I recently had a hard drive failure, so I ended up getting a new computer. However, this computer seems to have some issues of its own.

I'm having text that ends up being very blurry - it extends to applications and the like. However, it isn't every type of text. When I have my resolution at maximum, the text for file names are still legibal, but when it comes to text, example is what I'm typing right now, will be slightly blurry. Some tends to get even more blurry, rendering it a strain on my eyes to read.
