RIght-Click on the desktop and Click properties, then go to the advanced tab and increase the resolution using the slider, until the image of your screen (the rectangle with the 1 inside it), is also widescreen.

If possible, find your manual or box from the monitor, and look for its resolution, and then change it to match that.

I have a new Acer X203H 20" wide computer monitor. All of my photos are streched wide, and everyone looks fat. Can I adjust this ?

You need to set the PC video resolution to 1600 x 900 for proper 16:9 wide screen format. But if your pictures that you taken with your camera were not 16:9, IE 4 X 5 then it will be stretched side way to fill the screen.

How do I get a normal image on an Acer X203H monitor?

right click on your desktop and select "properties" (xp)  or "personalization" (vista/7).  In xp, select the "settings" tab, and in vista/7, select "display settings". then adjust your screen resolution to a wider aspect ratio to compensate for the wide screen.
