This could be caused by the wrong graphics driver installation.
You can download the drivers from Dell WEB site, the support download page. Make sure you select your model laptop, better still, type in the Service Tag number, it is printed on the label on the bottom of the laptop. This will open the page where the specific drivers for your model laptop are located. Also make sure you select the Windows XP or Vista version of the drivers for your Windows operating system.

Dell GX260 has distorted video on Dell 19" widescreen. Circles turn into ovals.

Most likely the Display Resolution is not set to a 16:9 display aspect ratio (1366 x 768 for example) if you use a 4:3 ratio on a widescreen, then everything is distorted. Make sure the display is set to the optimal resolution You can look up you monitor's Optimal Resolution here:

Try checking the device manager of your computer if all the drivers are correctly installed.
Here's what you are going to do:
1. Right Click "My COmputer".
2. Click Manage
3. A window will come out. Select Device Manager.

(If you can see a device with a question, that's the problem.)Then you need to download the driver from the support cd from dell that says device manager.

2nd OPtion.

Try checking the setting of your display in the display properties. There are sometimes that the screen is not automaticaly set to the best resolution after reinstallation.

Here's what you are going to do:
1. Right Click on the wall paper.
2. Go to properties.
3. Settings
4. Change the screen resolution.

I hope this helps.
