circles show as elipses

wondering what the command is to correct the display to show circles as circles when they keep showing up as elipeses. 


i remember in older versions of autocad one would draw a circle on the screen, physically measure the width and height and enter these figures after the command to fix the display was entered and the screen would auto adjust so that arcs and circles showed correctly.

The screen calibration went away a long time ago (Rel. 14?).


The first thing you should do, if you are using a LCD or plasma screen, is make sure you are running in the screen's native resolution. If you don't know what the native resolution is, you will need to research it (Google!) using the make and model number.
