Right click on your desktop and change the default resolution try 800x600, 1024x768 see if that helps. if it does not download a new videocard driver specific to your computer.

Check your graphics/desktop settings for the screen resolution - it should be set to the monitor's native resolution, which is 1024x768.

I bought a 1600x900 monitor and now pictures are distorted


Your screen's ratio is oriented to playing wide screen formatted movies. Set your screen resolution to a ratio that's more or less 2 to 1 and you'll have a more realistic depiction of people on photos.

There are 2 inches of black space on both sides of my screen.


There should be a way to go into the screen settings on the set (either from the remote or on the bottom of the screen). From that menu you can adjust the size of the screen, stretch it, align it, etc.

Hannspree HF229H monitor and Windows XP. Images stretch to fit.


I had this same issue.

Go into the monitors menu, go down to "Image Settings", go to "HDMI Mode", select "PC Mode"

Hope this fixes it for you. It worked for me.

Distorted images due to wide screen


Hi
Your entire desktop is probably stretched left to right.
You need to adjust the resolution of your computers video card in the display properties to one that the widescreen will accept correctly.
There is a chance that your video card may not have the correct resolutions available. If this is the case then you may be stuck with this view until you change coputers or video cards.
to get to display properties based on win2k or xp
Right click in the center of your desktop, choose properties, go to settings and there you should see the resolutions available. Try different ones till you find a good one, you may have to settle for one that is close to your monitors setup if the exact one isn't available.
If using a laptop with a standard screen with the wide monitor, you may need to disable the laptop screen and use just the monitor to get the correct resolution on the monitor.

How do I get the widescreen monitor to show unstretched images?


i had the same problem with my new widescreen monitor... turns out the best setting (at least, for my specific monitor) was 1440 by 900 pixels. at this setting the desktop still stretches itself to fill the entire screen, but everything else is completely unstretched. (to adjust the screen resolution, right click anywhere on the desktop, then go to properties, then settings.)
