Just upgraded my old Dell Inspiron to the new 7000 series with the 4GB NVIDIA graphics card. Loving the laptop so far but my monitor I use to dual screen is really blurry. I know the HDMI chord and monitor are perfectly fine because it is crystal clear on the old Dell laptop.

My resolution is set correctly to 1920 x 1080 (recommended) on both the laptop and extended monitor. Any ideas why this would happen?

 
Hi,

Try to adjust the resolution and refresh rate of the 2nd monitor from Nvidia Control panel and see if it will make any difference.

Here's how to change the resolution using Nvidia Control Panel:

If this will not work proceed with doing a clean install of the graphics card driver.
- Go to Device Manager and uninstall the Nvidia graphics driver.
- Next is to check Programs and Features then uninstall anything related to Nvidia.
- Once done, download and install the latest driver.
- Here's the link: http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-us#axzz41e9WA6FX
- Reboot your laptop once the driver has been installed then test it again.

Did you ever figure this out? I'm having the same issue.
