Your report is very similar to mine. I'm also using 1600x1200 resolution. My 
machine has DVI, but monitor does not. So I'm also using VGA connector. And 
I also have problems, but its font rendering in my case.

What happens, if you switch to 1280x1024 or 1024x768 (if your monitor 
supports such resolution)?
