Blurry screen on correct resolution

Spread the love

I’ve connected new monitor to my Ubuntu 16.04, but the image is blurry and monitor complains “For better picture quality change resolution to 2560×1440”.
The problem is that I already set my resolution to 2560×1440 in Ubuntu.

Here is my output from xrandr:

Monitor is Viewsonic VX3209-2K connected to Lenovo T420 via VGA cable.

I tried connecting this monitor to another laptop (Macbook) via HDMI cable and the image is sharp and I get no warning about incorrect resolution so it seems the problem is with my current setup, not with the monitor.

Are there any settings that I can adjust to the image sharp?
What can I try?
