Distortion could be, just could be, due to how your notebook's native
1024x768 resolution fixed grid transistors, on screen redraw, automatically
reinterporlate pixels.  Just for the heck of it, can you try connecting your
notebook to an external monitor, then try all screen adaptor modes to see if
fonts still look like cooties?

I have seen exactly the same behaviour on my computer (Windows Me), nothing
to add or to subtract from your description.
Please keep me informed if you find a work-around.
