Sandy bridge i3 wont fill my monitor

I just built a SB i3 and using the dvi on my 23 inch led it seems to be giving me 4:3 instead of 16:9. My pc before this filled it out fine, i have installed the proper graphics drivers and everything.

What motherboard are you using?

What graphics card, if any?

What driver and where did you get it?

What are your resolution choices?

Do you have a control panel choice for Intel HD video?
