Screen stretched in Win8 on Dell laptop

I just installed Windows 8 on my Dell Laptop. It's all working well, but the screen is stretched so all the squares are rectangles and the circles are oval. I only have the choice of 2 screen resolutions, and they both look stretched. Help Please?

Sounds like the graphics drive is not installed or is corrupted, have you rebooted since you installed Win8. click the windows + C key on your keyboard to bring up the charms bar, go to settings, then down the bottom click change pc settings then go to Windows update that will be at the bottom of the list, you can also go to device manager using the charms bar and see if there is a yellow exclamation mark next to your graphics card.
