you probably need to find the correct driver for it, i had the same problem on an old compaq machine. check under computer management - device manager and see if graphics has a yellow ? next to it

if so jump on supplier website and download the driver

Try changing ClearType settings in "Desktop Properties", Apparence, Effects.

what happens if you start the computer in vga mode, this way it will only use the most generic drivers, your display should be clear but huge.
If you have a mainboard cd with the Laptop this will have all  the default drivers for your video card.

tap f8 continoulsy when your machine first starts up, then you will get what is called the advanced options screen, here is where you choose safemode using your keyboard up and down arrows or your mouse  look down this list to where is says start in vga mode.
Please look here under xp as an illistration guide to safemode
http://www.computerhope.com/issues/chsafe.htm
once you havce selected vga mode press enter on your keyboard
wait a while and windows may start using the generic video drivers that your computer first came with when you bought the machine.
