    After putting my PC to sleep and waking it back up, my 1920x1200 monitor now thinks that it's 1680x1050. If I try to set it to 1920x1200 (which Windows still recognizes as native) the desktop boundaries are hanging off the physical screen instead of the image being shrunk down to fit.

    It does the same thing if I hook it up to my laptop, so it's not the computer. Is there anything I can do to salvage the screen or is it just going to be 1680x1050 forever now? :s

    Are you using DVI or DisplayPort?

    The monitor is VGA going into the 560Ti via a DVI adaptor.

    Set your resolution to 1920x1200, and on the monitor on screen menu, you'll find something called "Auto Adjust". Select it. It will adjust the image on the screen.

    It's best to use DVI or DisplayPort. Avoid HDMI and VGA.

    Mine doesn't appear to have an option like that.
