Need help with monitor and windows display settings

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
i just got the asus vh236h..this is my first wide screen monitor im coming from a standard dell flat lcd non widescreen

color settings arent the issue for me cause i seem to have that ok or i can mess with that

my problem is running at native resolution everything is way to small for me i cant see anything

ive tried messing with windows font sizes and dpi settings some things get better some stay the same others get worse from being to big

not sure what to do and whats the best settings basically i get certain things large enough like the taskbar clock but then the text looks faded and thin

when i try to go to another resolution size wise things seem better but then everything is stretched and blured/faded looking

i desperately need help dont know to much about this stuff
