Please upload a screenshot for us. Also, please include the "Screen Resolution" window just in case. Do you have the lastest drivers installed from ATI? This is surely a graphics card issue.

i'll send 2 screenshots.it won't be easy 4 you to realise it, but in reality i'm much thinner and taller than in the pic)that sounded funny.i installed the graphic card driver from the ati site. i have an ati radeon x200..so theoreticaly there shouldn't be any problems.

How many inches is the display? Youre right, i dont see anything wrong with those photos. Take a look at them at another computer, and tell us, do YOU see a abnormality?

i don't see how my monitor's size could help, it's totally irrelevant, the aspect ratio is the problem.man, of course something's wrong otherwise i wouldn't be asking questions.not only the photos are wider, everything looks wider including internet sites, etcetera.even asking me to put some screenshots was an idiot idea because it implies me being stupid or paranoid about this thing.it's from the graphic card but i have no idea what exactly.would you please be kind and not put an answer to this thread unless you can say something that could sound even a bit logical.thank's alot

While your video driver is showing standard vga, you post this?

Install the latest video driver from the manufacturer instead.

i have an ati radeon x200..i installed the compatible driver for it but without any luck and also i tried with windows 7 loader to make it download its own driver without my intervention and it also didn't help...so i kinda ran out of ideas..i found others posting the same problem on the internet and they didn't find any solution either..

Install like this:

Extract from my link by running the installer. Close it as soon as it is done extracting.

Then go to device manager. Right click standard vga. Browse. Let me pick. Have disk. Browse. Find the extracted .inf. Double click on it. Hit ok. Hit next. Reboot and choose an Aero theme.

Enjoy.

ATI Catalyst? Legacy Display Driver

If you have a 200m instead, use this link:
