Hi,

I was wondering if anybody could help me solve a problem that has baffled me for a while now. On my friends computer, certain graphics come up very low resolution. It seems to be mostly microsoft related things that have this problem for instance, images in IE are low res, but work fine in Firefox. I put the latest video card drivers on but that did not help. Please look at the attached picture and share any insight with me that you might have regarding this issue. Thanks so much!

NOTE: I have attached a screenshot with arrows pointing out some of the examples of low-res images.

P.S. Sorry for the low-qual jpeg with all the ghosting. My friend only has MS Paint on her computer. However, if you look at the bottom right of the taskbar as well as the "Google" in IE, you can see the low-res fairly clearly.

How many monitor connections do you have at the back of this pc. Are there two, maybe? If yes, turn the computer off, move the cable to the second connection, secure it in place and reboot. Any difference?

Sorry, I forgot to mention that this is a laptop with no external monitors attached.

Could you connect the laptop to an external monitor and report if there is any difference.

It is not my laptop, so this may take a little while. However, I will attempt to try this as soon as is possible. Any suggestions in the meantime? Thanks.
