Could be a faulty monitor, or could be missing the driver information for the monitor. Usually when you first connect it will use a generic driver to start but then should automatically download and install the correct driver information for the monitor. Could also just be a faulty cable, power or VGA, HDMI, which ever you are using. Try using different cables first, then you can google search for the correct driver and manually install it.
It is definetly a widescreen the issue is either with your display card or your resolution setting you need to check both. If you would have told me wether your display is through mother board or scsi card the model of mother board or the display card then i could fix the issue easilly.
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.
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.
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
Try going into Start - Control panal - add new hardware. First let windows look for itself ;then If it doesn't find the monitor then tell it monitor and see if it will find the correct driver for it. Worth a try.
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.
