After I had to reinstall my Windows 7 OS and the Samsung drivers onto a new internal hard drive, my screen images appear to be somewhat stretched sideways from normal. I right-clicked the desktop screen and was given only two screen resolutions to pick from, thinking perhaps was the problem, but neither option changed my problem.

Any suggestions?

Yes, I downloaded the pertinent drivers from their site.

The driver I think you're referring to is the "VGA graphics Intel driver" on the linked page (you have to click the Downloads tab). I extracted it and installed it, and upon reboot there was no change. At least, with the images I see. They're all stretched sideways.

What do you mean by "screen images"? If you mean the desktop background are you using Microsoft backgrounds or your own photos or from somewhere else? And what Picture position (Fill, Stretch, etc.) are you using?

Uninstall the video drivers and restart the system. Let Windows 7 load the default video drivers on bootup. Any change?
