i have just bought a widescreen monitor and was wondering if there is any settings in xp that can run xp in widescreen as my screen looks a little stretched.

Right-click the desktop, select Properties from the context menu and select the Advanced tab. Adjust your resolution pattern to one that has the correct aspect ratio.

Be prepared to find an updated graphics card driver if the correct res is not present.

Let us know whether that works or not.

Your monitor manual should tell you the recommended (native) resolution to run at.
