I just installed a replacement monitor on my 2004 HP computer (the original one stopped working on saturday.) The replacement, about 2 years old, is a wider screen model than my original. Now, everything, desktop to actual files that I open, appear stretched: distorted too wide. What can I do to restore the normal appearance of my screen?

right click on the desktop and change the resolution to match the native resolution of the monitor, possibly, 1440x900, 1280,800, 1680x1050... depends on your monitor.
