    I hope it works for our original Poster - I am pretty sure that the 1152 x 864 resolution is due to that setting.

    I hope that too.
    Your fix is definetly a keeper but before the driver update he didn't had a 1366x768 res on the list (see previous posts) only some time ago. Probably something has changed during an update or wrong monitor detection.

    Thanks fafhrd
    .. That's a good method..
    That Method is a good one to get the
    stretch
    to normal.. but now the resolution is changed back to 1152x864... It is changes back to the previous state.. I actually wanted the higher resolution that is 1366x768 without the stretch of the screen.. Is there a possible method to get that?

    Thank You

    I don't really have an answer here - although I know what is happening:

    Now we are talking aspect ratios here 1152 x 864 = 1.333333333 = 4:3
    whereas 1366 x 768 = 1.778645833 = 16:9

    your Specs say:

    Monitor(s) Displays Sony LED Monitor (2)
    Screen Resolution 1600 x 1200

    1600 x 1200 = 1.33333333 = 4:3

    this explains why the 1152 x 864 = 1.333333333 = 4:3 looks unstretched and
    1366 x 768 = 1.778645833 = 16:9 looks distorted
    and of course to change from one resolution to the other you either need to squeeze or stretch the dimensions relative to each other.

    But you also talk about your Laptop - what is the make and native screen resolution of that laptop? You don't give these figures.

    Why aren't you able to run your graphics at 1600 x 1200 - or does that not apply to the laptop screen?
    Do you need to identify your laptop screen to your system, so that it will be given the best resolution for that aspect ratio? Windows or the display driver often just says unknown non-PNP monitor - when the monitor is PNP.

    You could download unknown devices (beta 1.4.2.0) from Halfdone: Unknown Devices to see if that can identify your monitor.

    There are various tricks to altering the display without distorting the image, you can introduce black space at the edges, or overrun the sides or tops of the screen - like the older TVs had to do when displaying wide screen films. (Letterboxing, Pillarboxing, Windowboxing, zooming and cropping), but your graphics driver will not do these. Intel GMA drivers and control panels do not give all the features they indicate they can - like maintaining aspect ratio on all screens.

    However, Laptops graphics drivers are often modified so that they do not cause problems on the hardware, however, they may still be poor drivers, and 3rd-party modified drivers can sometimes improve performance and stability. There may be better Intel HD 3000 drivers available. Latest driver for you I can find:

    Intel HD Graphics Driver Windows 8 Release Preview download from Guru3D.com

    I have 4 operating systems that I use on my netbook: Linux Mint 1024 x 600 - which just fits the screen - Windows XP where I can choose various sizes, some of which I have to scroll to get to the sides and top and bottom of the screen, and Windows 7 and Windows 8, both of which are limited to either 1024x600 or a distorted 1152x864 or 1024x768 - the laptop supplied drivers are for windows 7. If I had a choice, the XP drivers would be favourite.

    I had the resolution working really good before a couple of weeks.. But before a few days, The resolution shifted to 800x600 after a boot up.. Then, when i tried to change the resolution back to 1366x768, it was replaced with 1152x864.. Now i'm running 1152x864 px in my Screen.. For all the methods, i have been using a Fujitsu Lifebook AH531 with a maximum resolution of 1366x 768 which was running properly when i recently when i bought the laptop..

    Thank You

    Fujitsu LifeBook A531/AH531 Windows 7 Drivers | Laptop Software

    download the intel driver VideoI_Intel6X_v15.21.5.64.2266_W7-Vista-64.exe

    try that and see how you get on - fujitsu main download link seems broken - when I try and select your model, the selection page that pops up is for a different model - very odd

    First manually uninstall the driver from device manager and then reinstall the other one (after reboot).
