Screen pulling wide
I have a Dell Inspiron I6400 with an Intel Core2 processor (1.67 GHz) and
2046 MB of RAM, running Windows Vista (32-bit). I don't really know enough
about screens and graphics to describe what I have, or where to look to find
that out. But, every once in a while, and particularly after closing the
notebook to make it sleep, when I open the computer the screen is pulled
horixontally and everything is stretched wide, making round icons elliptical
and words look squat. Sometimes the screen sort of restarts and resizes to
normal; other times it persists like this even through several restarts.
Anyone have any suggestions?

RE: Screen pulling wide
Did you upgrade the video card driver to vista version? I've found that
Hibernate and Sleep sometimes cause this on my desktop Dell, but rebooting
cures it. Make sure you are using the hardware Power button to wake it from
sleep. Just opening the lid doesn't really wake a laptop or a Vista desktop.
You must briefly press the power button for both Sleep and Hibernation.
More help is available at the Dell Forums.
