    Dont go to high, with the resolution or you'll damage it.

    Are the videocard drivers installed?

    Going by your first screengrab/picture you need to adjust your resolution higher from 1280x960 to your native resolution (1280x1024), this should help your blurriness, try turning on Cleartype to improve your character shape (takes the jagginess away)

    Alternatively you could set your screen resolution lower (on the top slider in your first screenshot), but this would make it blurrier.

    It looks like you just need to got to control panel>display select the settings tab and change the resolution to a lower resolution. It shouldnt make your screen blurrier at all. From your pictures you arent using IE7. On the status bar on IE7 there is a small zoom tall which can make the screen more or less zoomed than normal.

    Have you checked that the colour quality is set to 32 bit?

    What size is your monitor?

    what they all said, but one more thing don't forget to adjust the Hertz rate in the advanced display settings, as that can cause it not to display right as well. think yours is 70 hertz
    And if the text is bad just when online, check the font setting in ie under view
