I have a Dell Inspiron computer with Win 7 Pro Installed.  I also have an Acer S200HQL flat screen monitor.  Dell and Acer would not help me.  When the screen resolution (via the control panel) is set to 1600x900 (the recomended value) any resizable form overfills the screen.  Only a sliver at the top of screen shows.  I can barely make out the minimize, maximize and exit buttons.  When I set the resolution to a lower value (any available values between 1280x1024 and 1600x900) the form fits correctly virtically, but is streched horizontally.  Maybe I can set the values to non displayed choices?  I tried to upgrate the monitor driver.  I am running the most current driver. 

 

Any options, any solutions would be greatly appreciated

 

Thanks

Resolved somehow.  Found on line a document, poorly written by Acer about the buttones on the underside of the monitor.  Played withe buttons for about an hour.  Lost the screen many times.  Finally it came back without overflow or streching.
