Okay, first off, I'm not 100% sure if you are able to see my problem.

I have an Asus VW222 Widescreen LCD Screen. Specs can be found here.

I would like to know why though, when I draw a perfect circle or square does it come out as an oval? Is it perhaps due to my resolution? 1280x960?

If not, I was wondering what I can do about it? I've tried the manual, but display nothing on this part.

Thanks.

Try setting it to the native resolution of 1680x1050. Sometimes LCD screens get a bit distorted if you aren't running them at the resolution they were designed for.

The circle in the picture looks fine to me.

Now they are distorted vertically.

So there is no software that could aid in this?

I checked around Google a bit and couldn't find any type of software that would fix this.

Maybe you could try updating the driver. You could also check the settings on the monitor config menu. Maybe resetting it to the factory defaults will help.

Your monitor has an aspect ratio of 16:10, so any resolution that doesn't preserve this ratio will be distorted. 1280 x 960 is a 4:3 ratio, if you wanted to use 1280 for image size, you'd need to have 1280 x 800 available.

Well according to the specs that were posted 1680x1050 is the native resolution so there shouldn't be any distortion at that resolution but he says there was.
