I would guess that you're not running your desktop at the native resolution
of the monitor and the monitor is re-sizing it.
For example if you have your desktop set at 1280x1024 and the monitor's
native resolution is 1650x1080 then your monitor will be stretching the
desktop to fit.
Find out what your flat screen's native resolution is and set your desktop
to the same resolution, you'll also be surprised how much crisper it looks
when it's not being re-sized.
