Re: 19" Sansung monitor
You need to set the resolution to 1400x900, if this is not an option in the Display settings you should download the apropriate driver for you graphics card.
once you have ascertained what make (nvidia or ATi), and model, go to one of the following for the latest drivers.

If you have an Auto Adjust option on your monitor, press that and it should adjust the screen to the correct size.
The button should be on the panel or it might be a setting in the monitor settings itself.
You need to make sure your computer's display resolution is set to 1440x900, which is the monitor's native resolution. Other resolutions will result in fuzzy displays or, as you're seeing, distorted images.
Right-click on an open area of the Windows desktop (that is, not over any icons), then select "Properties" from the pop-up menu. Click the "Settings" tab and you'll find a slider adjustment to set the resolution. If 1440x900 is not offered as a resolution, you'll need to upgrade your video card (or add a video card if you have a motherboard with integrated video). Most newer computers support that resolution, but some older systems may only go to 1024x768.
the monitor gets the wrong signal from the computer (refresh rate too high or scan rate too high ) check the screen refresh rate from Display properties / Settings tab / Advanced button / Monitor settings worse case: damaged hardware
If your computer does not have a video card that supports the correct
resolutions for the widescreen monitors, then your picture may get
stretched. Much like watching normal tv programs on a an hd set. It
will eitther strech or cut off the picture.
Try different settings in you computer display settings.
the original image size was probably recorded in 4:3 aspect ratio...meaning your widescreen is a 16:9 ratio size screen and is stretching it outwards to fill the whole screen. If you want the image to look normal.. ie. not short and fat people.... you need to change the picture size in the settings from widescreen 16:9 to normal 4:3 tv in the settings menu most likely...Also most remotes will/should have a button for that.
