A long shot, but maybe someone here will know...

My problem is this:
Running on VGA, on my BIOS screen, I see this:
http://b.imagehost.org/t/0820/IMG_4308.jpg

^So this is correct; the monitor is correctly detecting the resolution as 720x400

But on DVI, my BIOS screen looks like this:
http://b.imagehost.org/t/0560/IMG_4309.jpg

The monitor thinks the resolution is 1920x1200. As a result, the image control menu (the option to scale 1:1, scale to ratio etc) is greyed out.

Also when I set the resolution to 1920x1080 and 1280x720, the monitor thinks the resolution is 1920x1200, so the image is stretched; there is no scaling possible as the image control menu is greyed out.

You'll need a magnifying glass to see those pics. What does windows say?? Is the video onboard?? Whats the card with DVI on it?? Have you installed the video drivers?
