Make sure her resolution is set to the monitor's native res, or make sure its set at a widescreen resolution. Otherwise it will look blurry.

Also make sure that the image is properly aligned. Most monitors have an auto-adjust feature to properly align the image and to set the correct phase and clock setting - note that the auto-adjust feature is only applicable when using VGA.
