You might want to change your fonts to 100 dpi if they set to 75 dpi. 

Dependant on whether you are using X font server or not it can be done 
in one of two places:- /etc/X11/XF86Config (no xfs ) or 
/etc/X11/fs/config (with xfs).

You can tell that you're using xfs if you have line like:
    FontPath   "unix/:-1"

in your /etc/X11/XF86Config file. If there's a list of font directories 
in XF86Config instead, then X doesn't use font server.

In either case you'll see in config file lines like:

catalogue = 

Change order of lines 75dpi and 100dpi:

catalogue = 

Hope this will help
