Solved compressed screen image on Toshibs C660

Specs: windows 7 home premium
I have recently bought a new hard drive for my Toshibs C660 laptop after the original HDD failed. I then ran the Toshiba recovery disk and it got the computer up and running,with the exception of windows home premium ,which I have ordered online.

Unfortunately, the image is compressed so that for example the text and images look to wide. People look short and fat. I have tried the control panel-screen resolution and otions to no avail and it would seem that the default is one screen width, which doesn't alow me to change it as I have done before on old CRT screens. Could anyone please help? Up to now as a computer novice, I've not done too badly.

Sorry, I'm probably having a dozy moment but what operating system are you running right now?

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

That's got me confused as well. If you reinstalled from the recovery disc, what is installed other than Window 7 Home Premium?

Whatever... It sounds like the screen resolution is wrong.
Right click an empty part of the desktop and select, Screen Resolution.
Does it say,' Recommended' in the Resolution box?
I think your resolutions should be, 1366 x 768. Is that there?
If neither of these appear, it looks like you need to update your graphics drivers.
(Intel Display Drivers?)

Windows may download and install this for you as an update. Otherwise you may have to download it from Toshiba support. You'll need the exact model number of your laptop.
