Just change the following settings and your screen and fonts will become much better and pleasant to read. But remember you may need the Windows XP OS CD for some of these changes, and you may need administrator privileges to save settings.  Also ensure that all the necessary service packs, hot fixes and necessary latest drivers are installed on the machine.
