Problem with my screen, everything is stretched out (not screen res)

First of all, I would like to apologize if this is in the wrong forum.

Basically, one day my computer was fine. It was normal... like this:



I turned on my computer one day, and everything was weird.



As you can see, everything has been zoomed in and stretched out vertically slightly.

I already uninstalled my graphics driver and aero disappeared but it was normal. When I updated again, it went back to this stretched out thing.

My question is, is this a monitor or computer problem? And how do I fix it.

Did you try to restore the system back to the time before the issue started?
