I just built my first pc. I have always been using the same monitor so i had the resolution set to 1680x1050 because that's the only resolution that worked and i didnt know what the monitors actual resolution was. When i decided to use a different monitor that i knew was 1080p, i thought id have to re-adjust my resolution but when i did, the picture extended over the edge of the screen. I played around with settings and i cant seem to get a normal picture with the resolution set to 1080p on a monitor that i know IS 1080p. i have the latest video drivers and dont know what the problem is.
Please help. thanx :)

what cable connection are you using? if your on dsub then thats completly normal and should use your monitor settings to adjust the picture or use gpu scaling through vga properties.

ok sometimes that happens even on hdmi, it must be resolved if you enable gpu scaling though vga properties.

well is it a monitor or tv? try a different scaling mode. i suppose there are two options aspect ratio and full screen mode.also do you know the panels native hz?is it 60 or 75?sometimes some panels work on 59hz. also there are known issues on windows 8(if you are using). untimately if you want only picture i would suggest a dvi-d if possible.

Its probably just temporary but it makes me wonder if my other display is only 1050p. I am using a 55" Samsung smart TV. So no dvi :/  I tried different scaling methods. Neither worked. Since its a 3D TV, I'm gonna assume that its native rate it 120Hz but it goes to 59 hz by default for some reason. And last but not least I'm using windows 7 home premium.

to be able to achieve 120hz or above you need an hdmi 1.4 as far as im concerned.

i think the problem is due to wrong hz option, since the cable is not capable of displaying 120hz

Yea. My normal monitor is just a 60Hz so I just took any HDMI cable. How can I tell a 120Hz cable apart from a normal 60 Hz?

all hdmi cables look the same .the version defines the ability of producing 120hz 1.4 or above . the version may be written on the cable or elso you must check the cables package to see if refers to the cables version.
