I switched my monitor from a Sony 20in normal flatscreen
to a 19 inch LG W1942T widescreen. When I am using
Adobe Illustrator the perfect circle that I am drawing
displays as an oval. When I display the same image on laptop without a widescreen it displays as a circle. Any
solutions to this problem would be greatly appreciated.

Your LG flatron resolution is
1366x768.. just change the settings on display properties at
1366x768, if there no available resolution, uninstall your display driver and reinstall your video driver, the process of driver installation detect your monitor resolution automatic <_>
reboot PC in save mode and set the resolution to 640 x 480 @60Hz, reboot in normal mode and reset the resolution to the native resolution of the monitor (you need to find out what that is in the monitor owner manual).
It's looking more and more like your monitor has given up normal operation --- to go inside the monitor is something that is very unwise for your typical user, and it is probably best to just replace the monitor --- sorry.
Thanks for the comment regarding what type of computer equipment that you have. The integrated video card that you are using definitely is not designed for the widescreen monitors and will not work properly with the widescreen (as you have noticed). The solutions that you can use would be to get a non-widescreen standard monitor or install a new video card that has widescreen capability.
LCD monitors auto adjust and use a fixed resolution. It's impossible to reduce the vertical scan. The only what I could think of is to specify a widescreen resolution if the monitor is not widescreen and this may only work if you are connected by DVI cable. Sorry!
This is a hardware problem. There's a high wattage resistor inside which normally gets quite hot. Eventually this resistor desolders itself due to heat and breaks the circuit. Any repair-shop can fix this by re-soldering mentioned resistor (it is easy to distinguish it by its brownish color) using a suitable solder or by replacing this resistor by a more powerful one. Another workaround is to change a video mode to, say, 1280x960 or 1152x864 (while in these modes, monitor circuit bypasses the said resistor).
