Sounds as though you are having a display problem with the video driver,download the latest drivers,you may also check the display settings to make sure that the refresh rate matches the monitor specs.

I agree w/ soulrider and also download the latest monitor driver which can up the resolution and refresh rate for your video adapter.

The monitor is Sony specific and the adapter is modified by Sony after taking from ATI. And Sony does not have
any latest drivers. As such Sony's customer service sucks.

I just saw this on a vaio a few days ago, you do not need a new driver. You have two options...
1-set the video back to 1024x768
2-there is a checkbox option buried deep in the display settings (sorry, I cannot remember exactly where) to expand the display to fill the laptop display panel, I think the option is just called "expand". Uncheck this box and your fonts will be OK, but the display will not fill the entire screen.

For the LCD monitor the "expand" checkbox is disbled. I don't know what to do.

it can be the problem of your display settings such as refresh rate and /or resolution. if it doesn't solved the problem it is the problem of your video memory. you may have to change your card.

I tried all these things except changing the card which is difficult because it is built onto the mother board.

Thanks anyhow.
