Just got a brand new Samsung SyncMaster 2233sw, a welcome change to my super old crt I used to have. The problem is that the recomended screen resolution is 1920x1080 and any other resolution looks squished and blurry, But if I set it to 1920x1080 about a half an inch on both sides is cut off. The strange thing is, that if I plug in my old CRT and set the resolution to 1920x1080 and then unplug it and plug in my new monitor, everything is fine. But every time I restart my computer I have to do this which is a big pain. Also I am running on an onboard video card if that has anything to do with it. Anyway to fix this?
Update: The only time when it displays properly is when I trick my computer into thinking that the monitor I am currently using is the old CRT, If I have windows (yes it is MS windows) detect that the monitor I'm using is the SyncMaster it stretches out horizontaly and cuts off a half inch at both ends even if I press the Auto button on the side. (Tried updating my display driver (ATI RADEON XPRESS 200 SERIES) and windows manager said that it was up to date), Also updated my monitor driver, also no help, one interesting thing though when I do the hack and convince windows that its the CRT and then detect my monitor type, the screen resolution defaults to 1280x1040, but still says that 1920x1080 is recomended.
