7850 Problem

I had just upgraded to a 7850. This would be my second AMD card, the first one being a defective. When I booted it up and installed CCC, rebooted, and started up again, my desktop seemed very blurry. I have been searching all evening on google for a solution, but none of them has worked. I've tried turning the sharpness to 0%, I can't even find the "pixel mapping" selection, even though many articles have mentioned them as a solution and one of them have even been voted as best answer!
Please help me as I have not tried to start up any game and won't do so until I get this issue resolved. (even though I really want to play Battlefield 3!) What's the use of a kickass graphics card if everything but the game looks so bad?

attempting to google the problem, not much probalems similar to yours. i would normally recommend wiping drivers, reset, install an older driver(or beta driver) reset and try again but a blurry screen has to mean something is wrong. Im trying to find out if its hardware or software based.


If you had a 560ti before, are you sure you deleted all the nvidia drivers? switching from one side to the others without perfect clearance can cause driver problems.

I'll try and reinstall ^_^I use uninstaller pro that finds the root files deep in the computer ( which I cannot remember all the numbers and letters of the folder) and deletes it

The uninstaller didn't delete all the files since my resolution is still 1680 x 1050. What's a good driver deleter? (for lack of a better term)
