CRT monitors suffer from the so-called pincushion effect. It is the curving of the actual video picture usually inwards on the sides. There is often an adjustment to compensate for this and it's usually situated near the other user controls. Look for it in you manual.

Now, because of magnetism differences in the world. The monitor is setup to work where it was built. The pincushion effect get worse over time. The degree of severity depends on the location of the monitor and the quality of the design of it to facilitate enough future re-adjustment by turning the pincushion knob.

I am trying to play the game on my comp. But the display does not use the entire screen. Is there a way to adjust the size?


Modern Games need Wide Screen Monitors.
If you are playing old games on a wide-sreeen monitor, temporarily set the monitor resolution to 1024x768 or 1280x1024.

How do I adjust the image width on this wide screen? Everything appears distorted and wider than it is. I would like a narrower image.


This is one of the problems with the wide aspect screen. Most images seem to fit best on the older monitors.
You can go into the video properties and choose one the the display types that best display your image. Unfortunately, by taking a normal (to us) image that looked just fine on an older monitor and displaying it on a newer, wide-aspect monitor, you're gonna distort the image or crop it in a way you didn't expect.
My advice is to experiment with the display until you find something you can live with.

I bought a 1600x900 monitor and now pictures are distorted


Your screen's ratio is oriented to playing wide screen formatted movies. Set your screen resolution to a ratio that's more or less 2 to 1 and you'll have a more realistic depiction of people on photos.

Screen image display distortion


Hello.
What you are reporting is a problem in the pincushion circuit in the horizontal section of your CRT monitor. Usually this is from an electrolytic capacitor that is no longer willing to play nice with all the other components.
It is repairable, but get an estimate first. If the repair bill appears to be around $100, you would be better off to put a few more dollars with that and buy an LCD TFT monitor.
If you are quoted $25 or $30, it is probably worth having repaired. Just keep in mind that these older CRT monitors have age on their components, and once repaired, it will still be an old monitor.
Only you can decide which choice is right for you. At least now you have a few facts to help make the decision.
I hope this helps.

Doesn't look very good :( You can try returning to the "factory settings" in your monitor's menu. Maybe try the monitor in another computer to check whether your graphics card is faulty. But all in all it looks like a fault from the monitor :( Good Luck!
