Hi,

I've recently upgraded my monitor to a 20in Dell E207WFP LCD monitor. My graphics card (Intel 82915G/GV/910GL Express chipset) does not support the native screen resolution of 1680 x 1050 so I've set it up to work at 1400 x 1050.

This works ok but the aspect ratio is not quite right so graphics look a bit squashed. Within the driver for the graphics card there is an option "Maintain Aspect Ratio" which I have checked but this doesn't seem to make any difference. The display still takes up the full screen size.

Does anyone know how I can force the monitor to use the correct aspect ratio or of any software "graphics card" which can patch the hardware?

Regards,
Lance

Hi,

I've changed the resolution to 1280 x 768 which gives a ratio of 1.666.
This isn't too far different from 1680 x 1050 ratio of 1.6 and seems to display the images ok.

Thanks for your help.

Lance
