    Default Is this normal?

    if i view a image it will differ in size depending whether its at the side or center of the monitor... how do i correct this? when the image is at the side it looks stretched. i tested with another monitor of mine also the same..

    At first thought, I suspected your monitor was faulty. But then you mentioned that you tried another monitor and had the same problem. This led me to think that it could be your resolution setting. But now I'm not sure.

    Can you use some software (like Photoshop) to draw a square in the center of the monitor and then tell us how it changes when you move the square around the monitor? Does the square become a smaller or bigger square? Or does the square become a rectangle or other shapes?

    lets say i draw a square and view it in the middle it looks ok..then i drag it to the left or right the square will increase in width (height still the same)

    hmm a friend juz suggested maybe its becoz of the flatness of the monitor screen... curved ones are like that? coz i'm using samsung 753df and its not natural flat. my other comp is curved one

    I have a SyncMaster 753DF monitor and I think it's flat enough. Never give me this kind of problem before.
