Having problems with your Acer Computer Monitors ?

Acer 23" monitor: native resolution still looks distorted.

\015 First, my system specs:23" Acer X233h monitor with an HP Pavilion desktop.ATI Radeon 9200 graphics card, with Catalyst software installedWindows XP with Service Pack 3Installed latest drivers from the Acer websiteThe problem:The native resolution on this monitor is 1280 x 1024. With that setting, everything is stretched horizontally. However, with just the desktop open, my wallpaper is still in perfect proportion, but all the icons, taskbar, etc. remain stretched.If I change the resolution to 1280 x 720 everything is in proportion, but everything is also enlarged, making it a little fuzzy around the edges, and looking pretty low-res.As per the instructions, I connected everything with the power off, then turned on the monitor before turning on the computer.I know this computer and monitor are compatible because everything worked fine up until today. The only thing I've done was disconnect everything to move the computer.\015
