There is no information explaining how to eliminate that look with the monitor.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

You need to right click your desktop, go to properties, select the display tab, and make sure you have the proper resolution set for your monitor.
I believe that is the look of "widescreen". But again, I'm not actually there looking at your monitor. In my experience, you will get used to it. Another thing to try is demand a new one because you are not happy with the picture, and see if the new one does the same thing.
It is stretched side to side and squatted down
The higher you set the screen resolution the smaller everything is going to look. However, (and this may only work on XP and up, not sure) Try Right Clicking anywhere on your desktop > Select Properties > Click on the Appearance Tab > In the Bar for Font Size, select Extra Large Fonts, (or large Fonts). Then, in that same window, Click on the Effects Button, and make sure Large Icons has a check mark next to it. Be sure to click on apply, and then OK. Again, you may not have these options in 2000, I'm not sure. Hope that helps!
I set my screen resolution to 1680 x 1050 and that solved the scrunched icons and text.
