Monitor help!! Text of doom!

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Alright, here is the deal.

My parents bought this 19" Veiwsonic VA902b And its great, the picture at least.

Heres the problem, for the life of me I cant get the text to get bigger (I dont mean the CTRL+Scroll thing) Everything is getting bigger, but the text is staying one pixel width, giving everyone who uses this computer a headache.

Anyone know how to fix this, a simple bold would be appreciated.
