After i updated my drivers for my display, my monitor started squishing. When i bring them back to the old version, i could not play a few games that i wanted and i was wondering if i could keep this driver the same and fix the resolution.

What resolution are you setting?

 

 

going by the specs it should be set to 1280 x 1024 at 65 Hz......do you have it set to that?

Yes, native resolution is 1280x1024, if the image is squashed down at that resolution, adjust vertical size in the monitor's own setup menu.

1024x768 is not the same aspect ratio as 1280x1024. If you really want to run a monitor designed to use 1280x1024 native (5:4 aspect ratio) at 1024x768 (4:3 aspect ratio), you'll need to adjust the aspect ratio of the monitor display in its setup menu if you find the shape of the display unsatisfactory.

 

Overall though, you'll get the best result from operating a monitor at its design resolution.
