Display issues with nvidia

Hello, suddenly my PC started to show very blurry fonts either on Firefox, IE, or chrome. I also discovered that this is a system wide issue when checking device manager, the whole font of windows is very blurry. I got the latest Windows 10 driver from NVIDIA and still the issue is there. Check attachment to see what I mean.

Running on Windows 10 Professional 64bit
Driver: 355.60

Tried uninstalling the driver, reinstall, perform clean install, still the same.

Suggest for the time being you revert to 353.62

There is a suspicion that nVidia are withdrawing backward compatibility with the 7xx GTX models and this may be an early manifestation of this.

If you have trouble uninstalling 355.60 download and run DUD,20.html
Try to set scaling to 100%
start->pc settings->display
Change the size of text, apps, and other items: 100% (recommended)

already at 100%
I have found this article. Maybe it will help you too.

One frequently mentioned solution is to do some registry changes

REG ADD "HKCU\Control Panel\Desktop" /v DpiScalingVer /t REG_DWORD /d 0x00001018 /f
REG ADD "HKCU\Control Panel\Desktop" /v Win8DpiScaling /t REG_DWORD /d 0x00000001 /f
REG ADD "HKCU\Control Panel\Desktop" /v LogPixels /t REG_DWORD /d 0x00000078 /f
@davorin I tried it and all it did was making everything larger at the same resolution. I had to roll them back, text is still blurry. this is how it should look like, screenshot taken from windows 10 in my laptop.
Missing the screenshot.  Is this still happening with 353.62? If so did you use the cleaner tool to take out the newer extensions from the registry?
Same issue. Only 1 Windows 10 supported driver, which I mentioned above, any other would not install. I used system restore to get back before the registry change.

Attachment is reupped here. Notice how sharp the text is on my laptop, and how fuzzy it is on the first screenshot. This is around the whole system, not only on web browsing.
Just checked on nVidia and there are at least 4 driver variants available for your card and Win10 x64
Use the beta search link, as well as betas it will list all the WHQL signed "back issues" of drivers that work.
True. I can see it now, I will try it tomorrow.

I've no problem with the resolution - well done - but the graphics driver uninstaller would have reset the fonts too
I already uninstalled and then performed a clean install.
No other solution worked, as always I had to solve it myself.
