Sold a computer with amd 7770, buyer complaining of "fuzzy text" on his 32" tv

post #1 of 52
Thread Starter 
Sold a nice gaming system to him, he attached it to his insignia ns-32l-450a11 32" lcd. I went over a few things on the phone, biggest issue that stuck out was it was stuck at 30hz. Googling the specs of the tv shows it can do 60hz so I am posting here for some advice. Never had a buyer attach a low end tv to a mid/high end gaming rig. Thigns i've done so far:

1) verified he is stuck at 30hz refresh
2) Had him turn off font smoothing in windows
3) Made sure morphological filtering was disabled
4) Had him go through the clear type font wizard

Biggest thing is the refresh that concerns me. He says images look fine, just text is the problem. Any thoughts?

He is running windows 7 home premium, with Catalyst 13.1 drivers and connected via HDMI.

My guess would be a low PPI because its a 1080p picture spread out over a 32 inch TV. There's not anything you can do to fix that if it is in fact the issue. I have a buddy who tried using a 32 inch 1080p Vizio tv for a monitor and he had the same issue. The lower pixel density isn't as noticeable in pictures, but when it's black text on a white/light colored background it really stands out.

Thanks for the reply.

He mentioned that he had a computer attached this way before to the same monitor, but that one that one did not suffer this problem. I don't know what it was or what video card he used though, as I didn't ask him

May be a silly question, but is the output on the GPU set to 1080p?
