    there is a menu button on the front of the monitor but it doesn't give any options about screen size. it only appears to deal with images. this is a 2217 AOC monitor if that helps. I'm not stupid but this one has me baffled. i've been in the computer busy for 25 years and i can't imagine a piece of equipment you can['t set back to factory defaults.

You need to adjust the width on the monitor itself using the menu button on the monitor.

    It most likely will not give a text description of "screen size", it would show an image similar to <> for width.

My 933sn has this stupid problem. when playing old games at 800x600 half the screen gets streched vertically. i play all the other games at 1360x768 but some like age of empires 2 or counter strike,...


Try changing the resolution your TV is putting out; it may not be in full screen, but at least everything won't be stretched! 800x600 has a different ratio than 1360x768

Can you get 4:5 aspect ratio on this monitor, as all my photo's are stretched out of proportion?


Not directly but if you are using them as wallpaper you should set them with the Center (not Stretch) option from the Position setting. But in that case their resolution must be smaller than that of the monitor or the photos will be chopped.

I bought new monitor Compaq S1922a and picture stretched horizontal. I have HP intel with Vista. How to adjust VGA to make picture normal?


if the whole image is too long you can adjust it from tthe image driver ..it will be in the right side on the task bar near the programs that are opened all the time ..and named like the video card you are using and usually will display when hoovering the resolution in use..open the resolutions and choose one that fits best...and confirm ..
To adjust just the the picture from the desktop ..right click on the desktop..properties..and desktop...in there choose the desktop image ..or change image ..and you will have 3 possibilities for adjusting the picture to fit..center ...stretch..and tile.. see them one by one ...if non of the stile will make it visible in a normal way ..then you should change the picture,,and choose a wallpaper that it is in the same form and big enough to fit....
T change a picture on the wallpaper it is enough to right click on it when its opened ..and choose it to be set as wallpaper from the list of tasks...

Laptop wallpaper problem


Reinstall again your Automatic Wallpaper change. This might be the problem is your wallpaper changer, check the setting if it is TILE, CENTER or STRETCH, only this 3 options are available on wallpaper, aside from resolution if only for viewing purposes.

Pictures on wallpaper are now stretched with my HP


Depends on whether or not you are using Windows XP or Vista. Either way you need to right click on the desktop anywhere on empty space and go to properties. From there choose the tab that refers to Desktop, then you will have the option of something like "position". There you will want to choose Tiled or Centered, not Stretched which is what you currently have. That will fix the issue.

22'' LCD monitor aspect ratio is off.


Set resolution to the native 1680 x 1050. Then, using the buttons on the monitor, go into the monitor's menu. go down to "Image Setting", go to "HDMI Mode", then select "PC Mode". This should help everything fit on screen correctly.
