I recently bought a nice new monitor with a 1920x1080 resolution. Today I set it up and connected it to my laptop, and I found that in the Windows screen resolution settings, 1920x1080 wasn't listed. I also checked the available modes, and it wasn't listed there either. I updated my driver to the newest version, and am using a VGA cable to connect to the monitor. As there any other reason why I wouldn't be able to use 1920x1080? The available modes list higher-resolutions, just not this one. I'm going to get a new computer fairly soon so this isn't a huge deal, but it would be nice to utilize the monitor well in the meantime.
