Having problems with your Dell Computer Monitors ?

Image stretched I have 2 LG Flatron Monitors attached to my pc, and my problem is that images are out of proportion. EG, A letter size page is displayed as a square, and if I draw a perfect square in Corel for example, it looks wider than it is high. What do I do? I'm an IT ignoramus by the way ... Same problem here - my new Dell SP2009W 20 inch monitor (bought with a Dell Studio MT, YOR, Q8200 - not that I know what that means) stretches images sideways to a ridiculous degree. Help!


Answers :

No offense, but if you're an IT ignoramus, you should know how to fix this. I see you said 2 monitors, did you see that you could've added display to the second monitor making it look out of proportion? A simple fix is either adjust resolution, disconnect second monitor, or you could do the hardest one, test every single component related to display until you find the problem. Good luck with the last one,if you come down to it.
