Problem with Viewsonic VX4326wm Monitor

Hi.

Can anyone help?
I have a Viewsonic 24in VX4326wm monitor connected to my Dell. The graphics card on the Dell is a NVIDIA GFORCE 9800GT.
I have set the screen up to run with a resolution of 1920 by 1200 as recommended in the Viewsonic Manual. I have also checked the settings of the Graphics card and set the recommended refresh rate and the resolution to 1920 by 1200.
However, the desk top is too large for the screen with both the top, bottom, left and right extremes of the desk top not visible on the screen.
When I try to adjust the image using the on screen menu of the monitor the Auto adjust options and the manuual adjust options fine tune and H/V options are greyed out and I can't select them. Is this a compatability problem with the screen or is it possible that either or both the drivers for the screen or the graphics card need updating? The OS is Vista.

Are you sure that the model # is correct as unable to locate that model on the net all other

Viewsonic 24” Wide Monitor recommends a Max Resolution of “1920×1080” at 60Hz

How are you connecting the monitor via the VGA or HDMI port?

Take a read on page 3 might help “Considering 1080p (1,920 x 1,080)”

One consideration you will need to make however is that the large 1920 x 1200 resolution requires some high end graphics card power to run modern games at the native resolution.

Playing at lower resolutions forces the monitor to interpolate the image, and while this is pretty decent in gaming situations, you will lose some of the sharpness and clarity of running at the native res.

The monitor does feature hardware aspect ratio control, which is important for many games and certainly for external devices.

There are options for 1:1, 4:3, 16:9 and Full Screen.

If you can't power the full native resolution of the screen in some games, and don't want the image interpolated to full screen by the monitor, you can always opt to play at 1:1 and at a lower res (e.g. 1680 x 1050).

This would result in the game being letter-boxed with black borders around all sides.
