Monitor resolution

by Rayddd / February 9, 2013 5:44 AM PST

I have a Gateway HDMI 22" monitor running on a Windows 8 PC. I am having trouble with my web browsers screen being a little too large. I have to drag the screen down to see the X to close the browser.

The resolution is set to 1920 x 1080. . A sticker on the front of the monitor states it should be set at 1680 x 1050. When I try to change the resolution my only choice other than the 1920 x 1080 is 1280 x 720.The 1280 x 720 has a( recommended) in parentheses after it. This setting makes everything so large and does not seem right.

My other 22" Gateway monitor ( another model number FSD2275W is set at the 1680 x 1050 setting and is very good.

Is is possible to get the Gateway HDMI monitor changed over to the 1620 x 1050 resolution ?
