New monitor resoultion gfx not capable

Specs: Windows 7, Quad Core G0 @ 2.4Gh
Hi,

I have a new monitor Dell SP2309W, (which is a 16:9) and using Windows 7 with the latest drivers on my ASUS EN7600GT gfx card.

When I use the resolution 2048x1152, it displays but the desktop (nice and clear) howeever it is shifted somewhat to the right, and I have about a 2inch black gap on the left hand side.

I have tried to see if I could slide it back to the left but this didnt work (using monitor configurations).

My graphics card says it supports resolutions up to 2048x1536 which is in range of my monitor.

It is because it can support this range say on a normal 4:3 ratio but it is struggling to display it (correctly) as a 16:9

any help much appreciated as I am currently using the next resoultion down and the screen and text is somewhat "smugded looking".

Set up your preferred resolution hit the menu button on your monitor and select "auto adjust".

Edit: The signal must be running for this.

Did you try it? The way you put it makes it sound like your just assuming.

The lcd I have (I admit it's not a dell) does some times auto adjust on it's own, but I believe this setting is stored along with the id of the graphics graphics card, changing the settings/resolution in a major way causes the screen to skew the way you described. Invoking the auto adjust manually tells it to forget the stored setting and try again.

If the monitor came with a disk install the drivers. If not, then at least try to get the monitor identified in the advanced settings.

Normally, your Graphics card will only allow resolutions it knows are OK to use.

Windows 7 is still in beta, the nVidia drivers are beta...there's bound to be glitches. I hope you're not running Win 7 as your sole OS?
