LCD monitors will not experience distorted geometry if the resolution is set to the native resolution. So, if a monitor shows distorted geometry where images are stretched inappropriately as in not proportionally, adjust the resolution. Also, a low resolution can cause oversized images or icons. To adjust screen resolution, click Change display settings in the Display window. If adjusting the resolution doesn’t correct oversized images or icons, try updating the video drivers.
The correct answer/best choice is: The resolution is set incorrectly for this monitor
