    Dell 2405P - aspect ratio

    Any way to change the aspect ratio on this monitor while using the DVI input from widescreen(16:9) to standard (4:3)? Noone has a fix yet for NHL 06 on a widescreen monitor.

    You might be able to do this under the display properties. This might result in part of the image being lost off the top and bottom or black bars on the sides. Some have a 1.5x zoom to do this. I'm not sure how my laptop does this as I have a 15.2" wide screan of that and it plays games fine.

    Yes, in the monitor's options menu. As well as a simple stretch, you can display the output resolution with a 1:1 pixel mapping, or expand it to fill the screen vertically while maintaining the aspect ratio.

    Assuming the controls are the same as my 2001FP, it'll be under the Image Settings menu as soon as you run the monitor in a non-native resolution (if you're running at native res with DVI then that menu is disabled).
    Safe computing is a habit, not a toolkit.
