I have a dell monitor
But when I view images on screen They are not displayed properly.

People and faces are short and fat

The soft ware that came with the dell didn't load right!!

How do I fix this

You need to get an updated graphics driver. What operating system are you running?

Sounds like you are running an odd resolution. Find out what the native resolution is (ie max setting allowed by monitor) & set your display properties to suit.

In the Display section of Control Panel you should be able to adjust the resolution. Normal resolutions are 1280 x 1024 or 1024 x 768. However, if your new Monitor is a widescreen, then you will need to imput the new ratios.

If your monitor is fairly recent it will offer a choice of connections: VGA, as in the first image, or DVI, as in the second. The majority of graphics cards are similarly equipped. The preferred choice is DVI, as this allows the monitor to communicate its optimal settings to the OS, which will set them accordingly. The same is not true of the VGA connection. If you have both, and are using VGA, you should switch to DVI. If you don't have both, or don't have a DVI cable, you will need to do as Graham suggested. The optimal resolution for your Dell monitor will be given in the manual, be it printed on paper or supplied as a PDF document on the driver CD that will have been supplied with it. Failing that, search the WWW or the Dell support site with the monitor's model number.

If the problem persists you will have to give model numbers for both the monitor and graphics card before any forum member can help you further.

^^ DVI is the white one, VGA the blue one.

Look on the back of the monitor, it should give you a model number. Throw that at google, it should tell you the resolution. Should be something like 1650x1080 or 1440x900....

I am using the blue plug Vga as the Graphic card only runs with that one
I am going to change the card ( I think this is needed ?)

A more straightforward initial step would be to right click the mouse when you have the desktop displayed. Then from the drop down list select options. Select the properties tab, and then adjust the screen resolution.

Graham has suggested some common resolutions above. Try them, and others. No harm done. The computer will try them for 15 secs, and thenrevert back to previous, if you don't actively accept the new one
