Forum Question: Application Icons going Blurred

This has just started happening in the last Two weeks. They all look OK in the Finder window,but when i drag them down to the dock they become blurred.
They all look fine in the Dock,apart from when i drag them into the Dock. The application items were, VLC and Coloured Folders.
Does anybody know why they are blurred?

    Perhaps you have zoomed in slightly (System Preferences, Universal Access). Or, perhaps you are using your screen at a non-native resolution.

    Fist of all this computer has been away 4 times to the Apple repair people. Its had the screen replaced 3 times, but this time they replaced the graphics card to try and solve the problem. Would this effect the icons becoming blurred. I can understand about the zooming in. Using the the screen at a non-native resolution(I am not technical) Is this it in System Preferences it has big numbers times buy another to alter the screen size,and resolution. The 2 icons have just been loaded down as well,and all the applications in the Finder window are perfectly clear Gary.

      Not sure. Sounds like something you might have to show someone first-hand.

    I know what you mean. Its hard trying to solving a problem just by writing the details down. Unfortunately as i said a while ago i do not know anybody at all.
    I am on a desert island, and i am just self teaching myself. This site as helped me a lot,more than The Apple Support Group. Even your answer helps, because you have ruled out 2 reasons. I am sure if you were here, you would sort the problem out. Anyway thanks Gary

    This iMac is baffling me, now the 2 Applications have went back to normal. I have not touched a thing. I just turned on the computer a couple of days ago,and they have just went back to normal?
