Default samsung lcd help

Hi i recently purchased a samsung syncmaster 2253bw 22inch lcd monitor.I can play games at my native resolution at 1680x1050,but when i want to play at 1600x1200,my screen in game displays off to one side.I even tried to adjust my lcd through the monitor but when i select h or v postion it says not available.Am i missing something?.

Ive installed just the driver but still no use.my graphics card is an ati 512mb 3870.

Appreciate Any ideas or help .

i believe the maximum resolution of your monitor is 1600x1050, so anything larger wont display right, or not display at all

I can play all games at my native resolution at 1680 x 1050 which is fine and its normal ....but to bring it down to 1600 x 1200 cause the screen to go offside off centre,the reason i want to downgrade my res in some games is because very old games dont support 1680 x 1050.

hehe... gotta remember there are two numbers there... max res is 1680 long by 1050 high... so 1600 x 1200 might be 80 pixles shorter, but its 50 pixles higher than max. so you'll have to find a resolution that is less than **** x 1050
