Default simple monitor question

I have an LCD monitor and recently it has been getting kind of blurry. Not everything is blurry, except some words here and there are smudgy looking. Does anybody know what this problem is and how i can fix it?

Check the manual to make sure it is set to it's native resolution. To check this rightclick your desktop, choose "Properties". Go to settings.
Also make sure "Clear Type is enabled, it's on one of the other tabs. Otherwise, get a CRT monitor

Make sure that you have the correct resolution and refresh rate. If all that are fine and its the same then consider you magnetic charge.
