It shouldnt be a problem with the monitor, but with the computer. Unless adjusting the resolution solves the problem, im not sure what to do. Sorry, hopefully that helps.

The images on the monitor are stretched lateraly


Depending upon the screen resolution that has been set in Display, the image will be distorted on these wide screen monitors.
Create a large circle image using a draw program such as Paint (hold down the Shift key as you create the circle as it will draw a perfect circle).
Open Control Panel - Display - Settings tab and adjust the Screen resolution slider, increase or decrease the screen resolution then bring the circle image to the front and check the image, if the circle is still distorted then change the screen resolution and check the circle again until you are satisfied with the image of the circle. When you are satisfied then click apply.

Hi, you probably have to set the correct resolution that fits on your monitor. The correct resolution is: 1920x1200 You can set it by right-clicking on your desktop and choosing "Screen Resolution" in Windows Vista and Windows 7. If you use Windows XP, right-click on your desktop and choose "Properties" Then open the rightmost tab to choose the resolution

Right click on the desktop in a clear area and scroll down to either resolution or properties. From this you can experiment with resolution settings to see which setting best fits your display. After each setting change the computer will ask you if you want to accept the changes, it will give you 15 seconds for each change.

I cant fit the whole image on the screen. The options to adjust only allow me to adjust the width...it wont let me show both the top of my windows open AND the start button.


Your resolution may be set to high on the computer. Or you have a standard screen resolution set and since the monitor is a wide screen, it is cutting it off.
Try a different resolution 1440x900 is what the va1930wm uses.
If using a laptop with a standard type screen on it, you may have to set the laptop to just light the monitor to allow this setting to take.
Since this monitor is a wide screen, it may have options in the menu to stretch or zoom on an image if the resolution is not set to a wide screen format.

The pictures are too wide all people look fat


You most likely have a wide screen and the screen resolution needs to be adjusted to suit the monitor.
Go to the Control Panel - Display and adjust the screen resolution until you get a normal image and correct screen aspect screen ratio. Start with a screen resolution of 1024X768 and gradually increase it until you get an image that suits your screen.

Screen image unstable


Sounds like your screen is set too big for your PC... it may just be a settings issue in your display properties. Right click on your desktop and go to properties, check in there and change resolution and things.

Doesn't seem like bad hardware.. just seems like a software setting is set improperly.

sorry i can;t be more help.

I have a dell with windows vista. the monitor is 20 or 21 inches wide screen. I recently had a friend try to install windows xp but at the last attempt he tried to reformat my computer & install it xp...


You can adjust the screen resolution to increase the size of the image to fill the screen.
Go to the Control Panel - Display - Settings and adjust the screen resolution to 1280 X 1200 pixels. If this still doesn't fill the screen then increase it further say 1600 X 1200 pixels even higher if necessary.
