Re: 1800FP image distorted
This is a little known porblem Dell has. Dell is not tell anybody.
I don't know if this is going to fix the monitor for the long haul, but it should help in the mean time.
grable the frame of monitor with both hands, apply some pressure, not too much (you will break the glass). change location and do the same thing. the screen will come back at certain location, when you apply the pressure to the frame. this is because some connection inside of the frame is coming loose with time.
if that doesn't fix the proble, please post.

The trouble isn't because of resolution. It's because whichever picture viewer you're using is trying to show the picture at a size that's too large to fit. You need to tell the program to fit the image to the view window, and then you'll see the whole thing.
I will admit up front that I don't use the built-in Windows picture viewer, so if that's what you're using I can't tell you what to do. I use a free program called IrfanView which offers a lot more capability. It even allows a thumbnail view of whole folders so you can pick an image to see at full size or fitted to the window, and nice range of editing functions as well. And I'm repeating myself, but it's also 100% free.
disconnect the signal cable from the computer. if it shows color bars, it means your monitor is ok and your video card is faulty. if it still does the same thing. you need to reseat the video card if its not integrated.
The issue here is that you have a low resolution picture and a high resolution display. Windows is "stretching" the smaller, low resolution picture so that it will fit across the larger area, thus distorting it.
Right click on the desktop and select properties. Go to the Desktop tab. There should be an item there for position. Is it set to Stretch? If it is, then this is causing the problem. Set it to center, and it should appear fine.
If you want to keep this from happening:
1) User higher resolution pictures.
2) Turn down the resolution on your screen (this can be done from the Settings tab of display properties).
