Windows 7: Screen won't centralise on monitor. Resolution issue? Help

Screen won't centralise on monitor. Resolution issue? Help


I've plugged my laptop into an HP LA2306x 24inc monitor. Max resolution for monitor is 1920x1080 60hz. I've changed the settings on the laptop to connect to projector and set up the resolution as 1920x1080. Images are perfect but I cant centralise the screen. I can just see the top of the toolbar and there is 1cm to spare at the top of the screen.

I have tried all the monitor settings and taken a look at the graphics card settings. Am very confused. Can anyone help?

Ive attached a picture showing the cursor/pointer at the top of the screen to indicate the gap.

Thanks a lot.

What graphics card do you have? sometimes you have to "upscale it" with your software suite.
