    Basically, (for the PC) the icons, windows and other graphics etc are slightly blurry/not clear, so i assumed it was the monitor. But when i connected my laptop to the monitor, the graphics were clear. BTW neither the PC or the laptop have graphics card,s just integrated gpu's. So what do i do? Should i get a graphics card? Any help appreciated.

    Hard to say. I would see what it is like in safe mode and possible try driver booster free as it may not be hardware.
    Never really heard of integrated graphics going, so it could just be windows settings. Is the resolution set correctly?
    See if driver booster helps.

    If you arent using your pc for anything special then you can pick up a cheap second hand graphics card.

    Slightly blurry is a little ambiguous. It doesn't sound like it's likely to be integrated graphics causing the problem. If I had to guess, I'd say it's something like the monitor having incorrect settings, or the wrong resolution being used.

    First try reconnecting the PC to your monitor and make sure that the cable is connected securely, especially if it's a VGA cable or other analog cable.

    Then make sure that the resolution is configured properly in your PC's display settings. Assuming you're on Windows 10, right click on your desktop and click 'Display settings'. Then go to your Resolution drop-down box and try different resolutions. Or get your monitor model and put it up here and I can check what the correct resolution should be . ( Or you can just google it ;P )

    What exactly makes you think it's the graphics card? Especially since it's integrated graphics?

    But how do you know that? How do you know it's not a software problem? Have you tried another monitor to see if the problem persists? Computers are very complex things and something you may think is totally unrelated can cause problems. It's also exceptionally unusual to see integrated GPU issues. I don't see how you can ask for advice and then categorically know, without a shadow of a doubt what the problem is.

    1. Are drivers up to date? 2. How old is this computer? 3. Did this occur randomly?

    Thumbnails, you need to clean them. Open disk cleanup and make sure thumbnails are selected, actually just clean everything.

    How long have you had the computer for? Did this occur suddenly?
