1920 x 1080 not displaying everything on screen; HDMI to DVI

Hello, I have a 21.5 inch monitor.

Right now, I have to use 1680 x 1050 for it to display everything on my screen. Like this:

But if I switch my resolution to 1920 x 1080, it does not show everything on screen. It's like it's too big for my monitor.
Like this:

I just bought a DVI to HDMI cable because my monitor does not support DVI; it has a VGA and two HDMI's. When I was using that DVI to VGA thing, it worked flawlessly on 1920 x 1080...but with this DVI to HDMI cable, it is like oversized or something.
