Since both the monitor and video card have DVI connections, I bought a DVI cable to hookup to see if there would be any improvement with the image. I disconnected the VGA cable and connected the DVI. Here's the problem. My display setting in the control panel reads 1440X900 60 htz, yet the monitor screen now shows 1280X1024 with a refresh rate of 75 htz. The screen image is larger and now does not fit the screen. I have to use the mouse on each side of the screen to scroll the entire image to see it. There are no monitor controls to allow the resolution to be changed on screen. When I disconnect the DVI cable and reattach the VGA cable, the image is again normal at 1440X900 60 htz.
I'm running an XFX 7600GT video card with the latest drivers. After searching the net, I have found instances with various monitors that experience this anomaly. So far I have not found any solutions.
Any thoughts or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
