Dual monitors Question?

I will try not to lose anyone. I went to Nvidia website and downloaded the current driver for my card. Since than my wide screen 24in. font is blurry and kinda stretched out looking. The 19in monitor doesn't have this problem. The 24in is my gaming monitor. Better picture. Now my 1.5+ old son sometimes gets in the room and plays drums on the keyboard. I don't know if he caused this or not. Anyone have any ideas how to fix this. I looked in the control panel for Nvidia and didn't see any options that would fix this or anything in the control panel of windows either. I have Vista btw. The wallpaper looks fine on the 24in. The explorer windows are what looks funny. If needed I can make a vid of this tomorrow and show it to you guys. TIA

What resolution are you running on the 24" monitor? Do you know how to change it?

As stated above check your resolution also check what hrtz your screen refresh rate is set at. Your new monitor will probably be able to run at a higher rate then your 19 inch.

my new moniter runs at 1200 res at 60 hz where as my old one ran at 1080 at 80 hz, but my new moniter is just so much better.

I maxed out the resolution and it looks fine again. Thanks for the help peeps. I guess when I updated the driver it changed that.
