    What hack? To operate in clamshell mode? I've heard this is a terrible idea due to thermal reasons.

    And, it probably looked fuzzy because the 17" LCD wasn't set to it's native resolution. Just a guess, though. :)

    Change the resolution in System Preferences --> Displays... for the external monitor. it sounds like it is not at the "Native Resolution"

    You may have been in in screen mirroring mode (to change it press F7) or as someone above me said, you have to set a correct resolution in display preferences.
