I was recently given a Samsung monitor to go along with a computer that I had just built. It is running at a native 1980 x 1020 resolution. My problem is that when I open the internet browser, the the information displayed looks like it's in letterbox format. You can still the wallpaper along the bottom where my task bar resides. It also occupies about an 11/2" of space across the top also. What really bothers me is that some of the text is squashed and hard to read. I have tried changing the resolution but that did not work. I am running an ASUS board with an Intel I7-2600K CPU and an ASUS ENGTX560TIDCII/2DI/1 video card. Anyone have any ideas on how I can stretch the screen to a normal viewing page?

Looks like it's an HDTV monitor. TV monitors weren't designed to be used as computer monitors.

Ok thanks-I guess I'll just live with it the way it is.
