Radeon HD7850 and VG248QE Monitor Resolution Help

Hey guys. I just bought the two. I can't seem to get the max resolution for some reason. I am trying to get the desktop resolution to be 1920x1080. But what seems to be happening is that my desktop screen is not filling my monitor. I played around with the settings/updated/reinstalled drivers for over an hour and still cant figure it out.

I can get fullscreen 1680x1050, but not 1920x1080 (recommended, it says). What's going on guys?

  1. What cable are you using?
  2. Press the automatically adjust button on your monitor or go to the OSD and just change it there. You should change your resolution to 1920x1080 on the GPU control panel. After that, play with the monitor settings, I.E. auto adjust thing, manually changing the screen width/height, unplugging/plugging it, etc.

    this monitor doesnt have that button. The osd settings only apply to the monitor menu (moving horizontal moves the menu, not the picture in monitor).

    You cannot get more than 60hz with that cable. You need to use a dual link DVI-D cable. There should have been one that came with the monitor.
