I set up a dual boot on my computer with OSX leopard (10.6.8) and Windows 7 Ultimate. Everything works great, but the quality on my second monitor is horrible in Windows 7, everything is really jagged and blurry. I have a Sharp HDTV (http://www.sharpusa.com/ForHome/HomeEntertainment/LCDTV/Archives/LC19SB27UT.aspx) as my second monitor and am using a HDMI to HDMI cable to connect.

Thanks in advance!

10.6.8 is Snow Leopard. Hard to tell what the problem might be without hardware info. Please update your profile and/or create a sig with your hardware.

Have you installed the Windows drivers that came with the AMD GPU and installed the Catalyst Control panel? You can use this to change settings on the monitors.

Ahhhh ok I used the Catalyst Control Center to make the image quality better by playing around with the refresh rate and resolution.

Thanks for all your help!
