Words not showing up on screen as black but as pastel dots

I noticed recently that on some sites on drop down menus words are not showing up at black and easy to read. They are coming across as pastel dots and very hard to read. I noticed last night that while watching Vikings online, during commercials the words across the screen saying when the show would be back on was doing the same thing. What's happening? Is it my computer, the monitor or the sites? If my computer, is there anything I can do? Some of these sites are important and I need to be able to read those drop down statements.
If it helps I have an e-machine computer with Windows 7 with a Sharp Aquos tv I use for a monitor.

  • I'm no expert but I would think it was a problem with your monitor. Best bet is to call Staples or Best Buy, etc and ask them.
