Lowering the resolution may cause distorted and fuzzy images.
The greater number of pixels in the high-resolution LCD displays shipped with many Dell™ Inspiron and Latitude portable computers may cause fonts and icons to appear smaller in comparison to lower-resolution LCD screens and external CRT monitors. Lowering the screen resolution through Windows® Display Properties is generally not a recommended method to obtain larger fonts and icons. This may cause distorted and fuzzy images.
