I got a new laptop and installed Windows 7, but the fonts appear jagged and distorted for many websites I visit. The screen resolution is 1366x768 and the laptop has an NVIDIA 930M graphics card.

Now, I've enabled font smoothing and also ran the ClearType text adjustment tool, but it doesn't seem to help at all. Does it have something to do with display/graphic drivers? (I installed the graphics drivers of both Intel 5500 and NVIDIA 930M)

Here are some screens (on Firefox): http://imgur.com/a/jpZJu

(as you can see there are little "spikes" coming out of text at places)

  • If it's certain websites then it's your web browser that's the problem, and nothing to do with your graphics or resolution or fonts. And you haven't mentioned what web browser it is. – qasdfdsaq Sep 18 '16 at 13:26
  • @PotatoCat I'm using firefox. – sarath Sep 18 '16 at 13:27
  • Ah. What (Nvidia & Intel) driver version did you install? Firefox is an odd one out because it blacklists certain nvidia intel driver versions – qasdfdsaq Sep 18 '16 at 13:37
