Default Odd aspect ratio

I just reinstalled Vista on my Inspiron 6400 notebook. Everything went well except that the aspect ratio of the screen is funny. The Start circle on the taskbar is squat, an oval rather than a cirlce, and my Powerpoint slides are too wide in relation to the height. When I display anything, including PowerPoint, through my projector everything looks normal. How do I get the aspect ratio correct? Display resolution for the notebook screen is 1024 X 768, as is the projector. Refresh rate is 60 hz (if that matters in this case).

Thanks for any help
