When I try to display digital photos, they are distorted in a sense that it makes objects and people look slightly shorter and wider. It was suggested before that I change the aspect ration to 1440 by 990. However, on the sliding scale the "Lesser" side is 800 x 600 and the "More" side is 1280 by 1024. There is no setting for 1440 x 990.

Re: Distortion of digital photos.
I don't know what system you have your monitor connected to, but most of the older video cards don't support 1440 by 990 resolution and you would not be able to produce a good sharp image with older cards either. You can play with the settings on your video card to find the most acceptable resolution, but you might need a better and newer video card.

distortion. 1: try monitor on another system. fails now>? bad monitor not fails. , the PC (or unstated object) is failing, if is a PC, the video card is bad. clean the dust off it, or its fan is bad. you did post a photos can cant really say but maybe you unstated OS is using the wrong fonts?
Wide screen monitor distortionDepending upon the screen resolution that has been set inDisplay, the image will be distorted on these large wide screen monitors. Create a large circle image using a draw program such as Paint (hold down theShift key as you create the circle as it will draw a perfect circle). Open Control Panel - Display - Settings tab and adjust the Screen resolutionslider, increase or decrease the screen resolution then bring the circle imageto the front and check the image, if the circle is still distorted then changethe screen resolution and check the circle again until you are satisfied withthe image of the circle. When you are satisfied then click apply.
This is a common problem with wide screen format.
The way I overcome this distortion is to open a drawing program and draw a circle, some programs require you to hold down the shift key to produce a perfect circle.
I then go to the Display Settings and adjust the screen resolution to get the best display that fills the screen and that gives me the perfect circle.
If this does not work you may need to download the latest video driver for your graphics card and then adjust the screen resolution..
The distortion mostly is caused by a wrong screen resolution. Choose another (smaller or larger) resolution and once you've found the correct resolution for your display card tne distortion will be gone.
you have to make sure that the picture you want to use as a background has similar resolution to that you are using in your actual display. for example if you are using 800x600 resolution you should have a picture close to that so it doesnt look distorted.
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.
Have you connected the laptop to another monitor and use the same refresh rates that cause the distortion? If the distortion appears on a different monitor, then I would have your laptop examined by a pc engineer, but, if the distortion only appears on the 997DF monitor, I suggest having the monitor checked at a repair shop, also, have you tried connecting the 997DF to a desktop PC, and use the same refresh rates?
