Default Re: Trying to Get an DVI to HDMI output to look good on a GTS 250

Despite what Acer told me, I'm wondering if the root of the problem is the monitor's drivers? Wandering around the Acer website, I found monitor drivers for my LCD, which I hadn't installed, because my old CRT monitor never needed them, and the manufacturer never had one specifically for my monitor anyway.

When I went to install the driver, I found that there were 3 of them, the first only labeled by the monitor's model number, the second labeled digital (which I installed) and the last labeled HDMI...since installing the digital driver the display is definitely crisper.

This leaves me wondering if I can only install one driver, or all 3? I'm mentioning this because it might be related to the reason that the text portion of your display is fuzzy...I don't really know. Without confirmation from someone else, I'm reluctant to attempt to add more drivers to this OS, but when I get around to it, I'm going to try the HDMI driver on another OS that I have installed, that I'm less concerned with messing up. I'll let you know what happens, unless you solve this for yourself first.
