How do i change the size of my screen so it fits correctly

Hello evryone!

I recently got a new graphic card an NVIDIA GeForce GT630 but i have a problem with my screen resolution.
On the attached image there is a red line drawed on a screen shot of my desktop that mark a part of the screen , that part is missing from my desktop becouse the screen looks larger on the resolution that my computer recommend (1360x768). I try other resolutions, some fits but looks blurry and others are too big for my screen (LG LCD 17 inch.).I updated the graphic card driver and check all the options i could but i still dont find solution for this problem. My actual resolution looks perfect but i only need to make it less longer so it fits correctly on my screen. I also try to use the monitor options but with no luck.

Thanks for taking the time for reading my post, i hope someone can help me find a solution.

Have a nice day.

So you don't see right part of screen because it's stretched (horizontally)? Is it also streched vertically a bit?

It's an LCD screen ... correct? What's brand/model of laptop?
Other resolutions work fine (I mean no content is missing from display)?

Is screen built-in the laptop? Or is it an external screen? If external ... try to attach to another compter. Same problem?
