Default LCD Monitor Help

I am looking for a good lcd for photo-editing desktop publishing.

The model my customer has tried to use is a Gateway FPD1765. This is a base model from gateway and the problem they are having with it is it stretches the screen vertically. If you draw a sqare 8"x8" on the screen it appears as a rectangle and worse prints as a rectangle.

I have tried changing the resolution, upgrading drivers and everything else but nothing fixes the problem. This monitor does not allow you too much in the OSD to rectify problems. If I put the old crt back in place with the same computer the problem disappears.

I am not a desktop publisher but in trying to help my customer with a purchase am looking for a model that won't have this problem.

I've read a lot of reviews that focus on brightness, contrast and refresh rates but none focus on this issue.

Can anyone help? Thanks. I'll try to provide all information you request.
