    Hopefully I've posted this in the right section. I just purchased a HP W2207 LCD widescreen monitor to replace my smaller HP 19" LCD. It's max resolution is 1680 X 1050 & I can't remember what it's native resolution is unless max & native means the same thing. It came with software to help adjust the monitor's settings, etc. The software recommended a higher resolution which I activated which make my desktops icons very small. FYI: The monitor does have a DVI-D connection. I had also just installed a Radeon HD 3850 video card which has DVI so I have my monitor hooked up to my HP computer via the DVI on the graphics card. When I set the monitor resolution to the recommended, everything (printing, fonts, etc) is so much smaller but fairly crisp. However the image does not fill the entire screen. If I lower the resolution, the image fills the screen, but everything looks stretched.
    Can anyone tell me what I may be doing wrong, if anything?
