Set your monitor to its native resolution(Maximum Resolution available). What Browser are you using? Every Browser has it own individual settings to change the text size.
By the way Google Chrome 23 has it here:-
Customize and Control Google Chrome(The three bar icon on top-Right)->Settings->Show Advanced Settings->Font Size
Set this to the size you prefer.
Firefox 17:-
Firefox Icon on top->Options->Options->Content
In this tab you can change the size of the font.
KSK!

OK Got it! I think you already tried the ClearType Text options.
Go to Control Panel->Display
Here you can increase the size of everything on screen by using Medium or Larger. If you do not want everything to get bigger try "Set Custom Text Size" in the side to increase text size and see if these helps.
KSK!
