I just purchased a new HP Pavilion 500-070 desktop with the i3 3240 processor. It has an integrated Intel HD 2500 card with dual monitor support. I also purchased a ASUS 27" HD LED monitor and hooked this together with the DVI/HDMI cable that came with the monitor. Turned the system on and it just does not look good. This is far from HD as you can get with grainy text and graphics and just terrible video streaming. My cable connection is a 30 mbps line and wireless connection is a 150/300 mbps network connection. The entire system is fast but images are terrible and nowhere near the HD quality I was expecting from what was advertised. Is the issue with the Intel graphics not really putting out an HD signal.

right click and select screen resolution and make sure it is at the maximum resolution. If it is, then your monitor is likely not full hd, (is likely 720p or 900p). 720p is not bad, but can still make text and video look grainy if your eyes are very sensitive to video and text resolution.

This is the most obvious solution i can think of, but if it doesnt work i will continue to look up other possible solutions for you :)

Look in box the Desktop came with. Open paper manual. Use telephone number included for FREE HP support. Call HP and discuss the issue with them.

OK, the monitor is a 127" TFT, 1920x1080 full HD with 2ms and hdmi connection. It is set at the recommended full res. of 1920x1080. I will give them a call as I suspect that the graphics is not putting out the HD signal. For the sake of it, I am going to take my 19" Vizio HD TV down and plug in the hdmi cable, and see what happens. I plugged in my laptop to the Vizio and got a great picture, so I'll give that a shot and call the support line as well. Thanks

BINGO "Presler"!! I had upgraded the computer from Windows 8.0 to 8.1, and then discovered that I needed to scan and upgrade drivers as applicable. There was a new driver for 8.1 available. Did that, and opened a video and found a much better picture. Thanks for all the help.
