    Patchy text help


    Hi i have recently upgraded from a 1080 to 1440 monitor , i have noticed that the text is patchy ( there are different shades of grey/black in the letters).
    Is there a way to fix this ? i have tried running clear text without any luck.
    Thanks mark

    What video card do you have installed? Have you tried checking for an updated driver for it?
    Try Windows Update, see if it finds a driver for the new display.

    Is this the 'blurry text' issue all over the web with Windows 10? Google 'fixing blurry text in Windows 10'.

    (I'm not so sure about the advice in this article, but the advice given in the comments beneath it strike me as interesting.)

    Are you using a different font or theme?

    What video card? What driver version?

    Every time I've seen this problem, going back to XP, it's been a video card or video driver that was the cause.

    You could try the 385.12 beta driver:

    You could go back to 430.86 if any problems with the beta driver.
