I am not really sure where to start....So I'll just get to it. I replaced my FX5700LE with a ATI Radeon 9800 Pro 128mb 256-bit AGP. As soon as I rebooted the POST screen was like you were seeing in widescreen with it black up top and on the bottom. The words were short and fat like they were stretched sideways. Windows loaded and same thing. My desktop was in widescreen. I installed drivers and the problem was fixed with the exception of my games appearing a little dark (almost unplayble in low lighting scenarios). I have the newest Catalyst drivers and can only overclock to about 400/730. Even tho windows video is fixed, my BIOS still appears widescreen.......not sure if this makes sense or not.....LOL.
