Hello,

My Acer 20" monitor stretched horizontally wide and the screen gets distorted if graphic is enabled, this problem occurred when windows7 was reinstalled.
How to rectify it.

You need to go to the Control Panel Display Icon and change the resolution setting. It's probably set to something like 1024X768 which the monitor then stretches to fit the screen. You what to use the maximum setting.

Good luck
