Wide Screen Question

Dear Pros,

I have just purchased a 200WB7 wide screen LCD mon to replace my old mon today.

But, now I am not used to the wide sceen feel and would like to set it to normal old looking style which is not wide screen.

How do I change the setting? I have tried to change the setting in the display status, but nothing work....

Could anyone help me on this?

Speechless thanks

  1. And, my display card is ATI RadeonX1600 AGP. I am using DVI to connect to my new mon
  2. But, I have seen some people who are able to change it back to 4:3 ..

    And... it is not really 4:3, but leave the 2 sides of the mon in black..

    Can I do it also?

    When I play game, I want 4:3 and when I use excel and watch wide screen movie, I want it back to 16:9.

    Can I do that?
  3. I am using ATI Radeon X 1600 AGP version.

    Can I change the aspect ration to 4:3?
  4. The monitor should have some options to keep the resolution ratio instead of a 16:10 ratio. I really like using the "scale to resolution" feature on my Dell 20" widescreen. It keeps 4:3 games 4:3 (old games and The Battle for Middle-Earth - f*cking EA, no widescreen support? I hate you) and new games at a nice 16:10.

    Not quite clear on what you asking about. Do you want to change/restrict your Windows desktop to a 4:3 aspect ratio on your 20" widescreen?

    If so, then I have to ask WHY?? What is it about the 16:10 desktop that you dislike?
