Your video card needs to support the native resolution of your monitor. Assumining you are using Windows, right click on the Desktop, select Properties and then the Settings tab. Move the Screen Resolution slider over to 1680x1050 (if it will go that far). If that isn't an option, you will most likely need a new video card that will support the capabilities of your mionitor.

Also, there should be a button either on the monitor itself or somewhere within the OSD (On Screen Display) that says something to the effect of "Auto". This button is supposed to optimize all of the pertinent image quality settings on a particular monitor. It isn't suppose to affect things like Brightness or Contract just factors that correlate to the physical display itself. Good luck.
