Please take a look at my screenshot attachment, I have tried several times to Adjust ClearType Text in Control Panel but nothing seems to change at all. Some letters are still always emboldened.
I am using
  • Windows 8.1.
  • Intel (R) HD Graphics card (current plug-in)
  • NVIDIA Geforce GT 620 (not in use)
I have tried changing my monitor plug-in to NVIDIA but the screen text then looks worse than that of the current Intel's does.

I see nothing wrong with it. What is your complaint exactly?

I used to see some letters getting bold in words. Now it became prettier and clearer to read texts. My monitor type is LG22EA53 (analog). But these said emboldened letters become blurred out when I change the Clock value down to 50 in the monitor menu. It also has Phase bar and I don't know what both (Clock and Phase) 's values are actually for (text blurring ?!?). I also can't explain how it also works with text in the image (The attached image was what I took while the text was in ugly display, now I changed the Clock, it changed too).

Maybe your monitor or graphics interface isn't compatible with such a low clock rate. I don't think anybody uses 50 Hz these days. 60 is about the minimum, and higher is better.

If you don't know what options like "phase" do, the best choice is leave them at the default setting - or at least, find out how to restore the default settings BEFORE you start experimenting.

It must be your local problem, both the image and the normal text on the forum look identical on my monitor.

Make sure your resolution is set to your monitors native resolution of 1920x1080. You may also want to try a digital connection, a better analog cable, or reposition the cable so that it is away from sources of EM interference. A photo will better show your issue than a screenshot. Also do a factory reset on your monitor, and run an auto adjust afterwards if available.
