I have a new Dell 19" widescreen monitor that I use with my new Dell Computer. However, some of my photos are distorted on this new widescreen (mostly the photos of people). What adjustments for a widescreen do I need to make?

If your computer has a HDMI out port or a VGA out port it will work you may need drivers but it probably came with a driver cd if not just go to Google.com and search for ""Hannspree 19" Drivers"". A VGA port is blue with 3 lines of 5 holes and looks like a triangle with the top cut off.
go into the settings menu for the monitor, properties settings display, and change the resolution to the native resoultion for your monitor, iyt sounds like you arend running it at the proper resolution, also run the driver that came with or is on the website that is associated with this specific monitor, it sounds like it was never set up right
Thanks for the comment regarding what type of computer equipment that you have. The integrated video card that you are using definitely is not designed for the widescreen monitors and will not work properly with the widescreen (as you have noticed). The solutions that you can use would be to get a non-widescreen standard monitor or install a new video card that has widescreen capability.
The clipping sound is the internal safety switch that keep shutting down the monitor. It means there is an internal problem on the main board (overvoltage, bad component , short). Try unplugging power cord and leaving it unplugged two or three hours, this will reset ICs by draining power completely from circuits, it is called hard reset, it rarely works. CRT monitors waste up to 15 times more energy than TFT screen, if your CRT starts giving troubles, then it is a good time for upgrading it to a new TFT. 17'' start at $120
Most likely the resolution of your desktop has and aspect ratio that in incorrect for your monitor. The native resolution of that monitor if 1440x900. Use the Windows (if using windows) desktop properties to set the desktop resolution to 1440x900.
