System
Dell 4400
Monitor Dell 2208WFP hooked DVI
GForce FX5200

I have down loaded the latest Drivers from Dell and Nvida

The problem that I have is that when I am on
1680X1050 most of my desktop is off the screen.
I have to scroll left and right to see it all.

When I open websites I have to scroll left and right
to see the whole thing.

I have also made sure that I am set for one monitor or
one display only.

So how do I get it all to be on my screen with no scrolling
and keep it at 1680x1050?
Also how do I get it to not look streched out. I do alot of
graphic work and when I am tring to draw a circle and it
looks like and oval that makes it hard to get any work
done.
Thank You

The monitor might have an Auto Adjust setting in the controls. You might try that. Also, make sure the refresh rate is set correctly for the monitor. LCD is normally 60hz.

It is set at 60HZ and it did the auto adjust when I first hooked it up. But there is no place in the menue.
Do other wide screens have a setting where a cirle looks like a circle and a square looks like a square?
Or are they all stretched out?

Do you mean on the monitor itself?

Go to the Nvidia Display properties... Digital Flat panel settings... and check to make sure it's set to Monitor scaling.

There is no auto adjust setting in the monitor menu from the buttons on
the monitor.
It gives me four choices.
Use NVIDIA SCALING
Use NVIDIA scaling with fixed-aspect ratio
Use my display's built in scaling
Do not scale

I have tride all four.
Still the same I have to scroll left to see all.
I also made sure that it is on a single display.

According to Dell there is a way to Auto Adjust the monitor. Go here and read the instructions... http://support.dell......20Front Panel

Scroll down the page to "D" Auto Adjust

Thank you but here is a line from the same screen

NOTE: AUTO ADJUST is only available when you are using the analog (VGA) connector.

I am using a DVi Conection.

I am just trying to do graphic design on a widesreen. The problem is that circles look like ovals and squares look like rectangels. Can I only do graphic design with corel draw on a square monitor? Or can I get this one to work?

Does anyone out there do graphic design on a Dell 2208WP?
Lets keep looking.......
