See if you can adjust the monitor manually. Before you do, shut the computer down > turn the monitor off and then back on, and then restart the computer. Try right clicking in a blank area of the monitor > select Properties and then click on the Settings tab. Slice the slider to different resolutions and see if this helps.

Auto-adjust it again, if that doesn't do it, go into the control panel for your graphics card and force it there.
