You have entered the area between a rock and a hard place. The older games are not aware of the possibility of a wide screen. Either put up with the fat and large images or get a second 4X3 ratio monitor for your older games.
I do not know of any driver to do what you are asking.

There are two places to look for the problems, the backlight inverter board and the power supply. Look at the power supply first since it is easier to get to, look for burnt parts, bad capacitors, etc.

You will need to adjust your monitor settings in the NVidia control panel. You can get to this by right clicking somewhere in a blank spot on your desktop and then selecting it from the menu. You will want to go into the Display section. If you aren't able to see that section, change from "Standard" to "Advanced" settings at the top of the screen.

you can change the monitor resolution settings by right clicking anywhere on your desktop, then click properties. Try changing the settings until you find one you like. If you pick a setting that your computer and/or monitor cannot do, it will reset to the last setting after a few seconds. When you find one you like, click ok. You can change these settings anytime you want.

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.

Veiwsonic VA1912WB flashes then goes blank


Hello,

You have a very common problem that happens to many LCD monitors after 2-3 years of use. Your monitor has blown the power supply that controls the backlight bulbs. Go to our web site at: www.ccl-la.com/badcaps.htm and look at the pictures of what blown capacitors look like. Open the back of your monitor and replace any of the parts that look like the ones in the pictures and you should be back going again. Be sure to usehigh temp (105c) replacements. Resolder them in with the side polarity stripe going the same direction and the old one came out. The values of the bad parts will be marked on the sides of the ones you take out, they can be ordered online from us or several other places, the one from Radio Shack are not suitable for use in the high heat inside on the monitor and will soon blow again.

I hope this helps, if so please rate my solution.

If you have more questions just ask.

Distorted images due to wide screen


Hi
Your entire desktop is probably stretched left to right.
You need to adjust the resolution of your computers video card in the display properties to one that the widescreen will accept correctly.
There is a chance that your video card may not have the correct resolutions available. If this is the case then you may be stuck with this view until you change coputers or video cards.
to get to display properties based on win2k or xp
Right click in the center of your desktop, choose properties, go to settings and there you should see the resolutions available. Try different ones till you find a good one, you may have to settle for one that is close to your monitors setup if the exact one isn't available.
If using a laptop with a standard screen with the wide monitor, you may need to disable the laptop screen and use just the monitor to get the correct resolution on the monitor.

Images are too fat looking or spread out on my 22" monitor, how do i adjust so the images appear normal?


You need a video card that will adjust the resolution to the proper proportion. The closest I can get to a good aspect ratio is 1152 x 864.

Distorted screen


Youre problem is because when a widescreen monitor is fed with a signal that is not ws it stretches the image sideways making people look short and fat. The only way to really fix this is to make sure the graphics card is providing a widescreen resolution to the monitor. In this case the native resolution (the resolution the screen looks best at) is 1680 x 1050 . If you right click ur desktop and go down to properties and settings u want to change the screen resolution to a widescreen res.

Hopefully 1680 x 1050 ... if this is unavailable try 1440 x 900

If you have an nvidia graphics card you can also go to the nvidia control panel and change the resolution attributes. If the widescreen res isnt available u could also try the 'change flat panel scaling' and select the do not scale option.

Please note before starting any of this make sure u have the latest graphics and monitor drivers available.

Display appearing stretched


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.
