screen stretched vertically


I just installed linux on an old dell dimension 2350, with the default everything, including graphics card and monitor. Everything went well, except that I noticed that the screen is slightly stretched vertically, so that anything that should look like a perfect circle, looks like an oval. Some people might not even notice, but it is driving me slowly insane.

Is this a problem that might be correctable in xorg.conf? If so, what variables do I mess with? Just in case, I'll post the xorg.conf.


Code:
Section "ServerLayout"
	Identifier     "X.org Configured"
	Screen      0  "Screen0" 0 0
	InputDevice    "Mouse0" "CorePointer"
	InputDevice    "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"
EndSection

Section "Files"
	RgbPath      "/usr/share/X11/rgb"
	ModulePath   "/usr/lib/xorg/modules"
	FontPath     "/usr/share/fonts/misc"
	FontPath     "/usr/share/fonts/100dpi:unscaled"

	SubSection "Display"

	SubSection "Display"

EndSection

Thanks in advance.
