Philips Monitor not displaying in 1920x1050

I have this weird thing where my philips 244E running off a 6870 hates displaying in 1920x1050. At one stage i managed to get it to work by running an hdmi cable from the monitor into an hdmi to dvi converter/plug thingy. This solution worked for months but after reinstalling windows I can’t get it to work again and am stuck on 1680x1050 (which looks like crap)

I have tried updating the drivers but that hasn’t helped.

I’d really appreciate any help with this, driving me nuts.

There is an option in AMD fusion center to force 1080p or other resolutions for HDTVs that aren't detected correctly. I believe its under "my digital flat panels" but I am not home so I can't double check

I had a go at forcing it to display in 1080p and it just doesn't fit the screen.

I downloaded them just using the steam driver update thing. Just downloading the drivers off there now, looks like a higher version number. Fingers crossed it fixes whatever is causing it. Playing games at 1680x1050 is horrible.
