are you connecting via dvi or vga? also, have you tried it on any other pc's?
Are you connecting directly from dvi-to-dvi, vga-to-vga, or dvi-adapter-vga ?

have you tried both dvi, and vga seperately, and with a dvi adapter?

and lastly, what video card are you using for it?

read what resolutions your videocard can support. Even my video card (Radeon 9600SE) doesn't support widescreen either. I hate the stretched out image anyways on widescreen.

im connecting via vga, well my graphics card (in my sig) is an originally dvi, but i got a converter with it to do dvi to vga. (so dvi-adapter-vga)

my old computer (the only other computer i've tried it on) had a agp video card with vga.
