Wallpaper will not fit to screen resolution

Specs: Windows XP, 1.5GB
Hi everyone,
I am using a samsung T260 monitor and I
usually have no display problems. I recently
hooked up my laptop to my monitor and
changed the resolution to 1920x1200 which
worked fine. However, the wallpaper is still the
same size as the laptop screen. When I went
properties and set it to stretch, it still is the
same size.

Everything else is working as it should and is
at the appropriate size.

Any ideas on how to fix this?

Thank you!

equinox123, start>settings>control panel>display>desktop. Does your background appear in the list? Is 'stretch' checked?

Hi, I have managed to fix it. I ended up updating the computer and after a few restarts it ended up working. Thanks again!
