Default LCD monitors everything too small

I just bought a LCD Monitor 17". I have it set to the recommended resolution 1280x1024. I've tried playing with some of the settings for the fonts and windows but websites show up so small I cant read them.
is there some software or something I can get that has more settings than what windows has?
I dont think I like LCDs.
Nothing looks right. mainly the text is too small in some apps and too big on others
I may just get the old crt back out of the closet and take this thing back.

right click on your desktop and go to settings there should be a DPI setting in there somewhere which adjusts the text size for everything on your comp try playing around with that
