OK computer guys, I have a laptop that I use once in awhile that stretches any images horizontally and no matter what I try in the settings area in Display, I cannot get it to orientate properly.
If it matters, it's a lenovo.
Thanks in advance.

I've only seen this happen if the screen resolution is not set correctly. I don't know what resolution the display supports, but older laptops usually had screen resolutions like 800x600 or 1024x768 or 1280x1024. Newer laptops, like the last 5 years or so that have wide screens generally have resolutions like 1280x800 or 1366x768 or 1600x900.
If you have a wide screen and you are using a non-wide screen resolution, like 800x600, everything will look stretched.
Hope that helps,

are you talking ALL images, ALL the time, even in the Browser, or image viewing software
then its in the display settings
or are you talking desktop wallpaper images
windows 7, right click on empty space of desktop
choose graphics properties
then choose the correct resolution in the popup window
Options, always have options, and the journey goes much smoother....

Thanks for your help guys, but it does do it all the time and has been that way since I bought it back in 08(?), I think. It just is real noticable when viewing images.
Nothing I do is changing the "fat" images.

Might try reloading the video drivers for this unit. Doesn't sound like the desired resolution is supported on the current driver.
