First, my system specs:
23" Acer X233h monitor with an HP Pavilion desktop.
ATI Radeon 9200 graphics card, with Catalyst software installed
Windows XP with Service Pack 3

The 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 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, and plug a 6' extension to the monitor cable so it can reach the computer in its new location. Could it be the extension? I would just reconnect it without the extension, but all the cables are fastened with plastic ties and mounted under the desk, so I'm hoping for an alternative solution before I take it all back apart to troubleshoot.

As far as I know, this monitor does not require any special drivers (if it did, I assume they would have come with it).

Thanks for any help.:wave:
