Default Laptop Monitor text is not right

I have a Laptop, Compaq Model 1255.
The text on the monitor is not right.

The best way I can explain what I see on the
monitor is to describe individual letters and what
they look like. For example here is the letter n,
but on my laptop monitor it still looks like n but the
right side of the letter is heavier (like bold).

Here is another example: this is the letter k,
but on my laptop the < part of the k is okay, but
the vertical part is heavier (like bold).

One more example: Here is the letter a in capitals A,
but on my laptop the ^ part of the capital A is okay,
but the horizontal part is heavier (like bold).

Anybody out there have some idea of what is causing this?
Thank you.

you are going to have to give us more specs on your pc...CPU, how much memory, etc.
