Change aspect ratio on an Android mini PC?

I recently purchased an Android iMito MX2 mini Android PC that works wonderfully. The reason I bought it was I wanted to replace the dumb terminals at my work with mini Android PC's running TN5250 (5250/AS400 Emulator). Everything went well until the Android PC was plugged into one of our monitors. The TN5250 application seemed to be centered in the middle of the screen with two gray stripes on either side; even at full screen it didn't fill the screen completely. Went back to the main menu and noticed everything that was being output to the monitor looked smooshed and pressed together. I recognize this has something to do with the aspect ratio of my device and the monitor that I'm using. I feel the mini android PC's were built for wider monitors or flat screen TV's. Our monitors are square and don't have a very high resolution, hence why everything looks all jacked up. Is there anything I can do on the device itself to support less wide screens? As you can tell, I'm a beginner Android programmer and don't really understand what goes on at the OS level. Any help would be highly appreciated.

OS Version 4.1.1
