I just built a new computer and I am having problems setting the resoulution for my 22 inch HP w2338h Monitor. The computer only sees the monitor as a "non-PNP monitor" and it won't set the resoulution beyond 1600 x 1200. I have installed the monitor drivers and the video card drivers, I have a Radeon 4800 series video card.

So what is the problem here? It won't let me set the resoulution any higher than 1600 x 1200 and the recommended resoulution is much higher!

PS. The recommended resoulution is 1920 x 1080!

Any suggestions? Thanks.

Windows should automatically get the driver for that monitor, see if it has. Also are you using a DVI cable to connect? You should, even though I dont think it matters resolution wise.

Well when I go to the device managaer it picks up the monitor's name as "Generic Non-PNP Monitor" So I'm not sure if it's getting the right drivers.

My monitor only has the option for HDMI and VGA, right now I am using VGA, on my older computer VGA worked fine and I Could set the resolution to the higher suggested setting, but my older computer also detected the monitor's name and didn't call it "Generic non-PNP monitor".
