Will some of you please help me with this problem.
I just bought a new wide screen monitor for my computer and it has a fixed screen aspect ratio at 16:9 and you can't change it either through the monitor settings or with my Windows XP Home Edition settings. When I draw a square with my AutoCAD 2004, I want to see a square and not a rectangle... see what I mean...?!
What would be the consensus of opinions among AutoCAD users about modern day computer monitors...?
There must be a solution to this out there somewhere... please...

You are not running the resolution at the screen's default: do that, and your squares will look like squares. From your description, you decided to run it at a "larger" setting to see text or larger icons perhaps and that's the price you pay. unless your video card is choking and is not able to hit the screen's designed resolution of course, then you know that fix is not cheap.
There is no other way to do it, it's how screens are designed these days: their way, or you put up with the display quirks.
That's too low, the AutoCAD minimum too, and not a "wide screen" resolution: unless you bought one heck of a dirt cheap widescreen. It needs to be back up where the monitor is designed to operate: 1920X1080 or 1600x1200 is where most widescreens are these days.
