Windows 7: Native Monitor Resolution not Recognized

Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
Native Monitor Resolution not Recognized

Just re-installed my Windows 7 on my laptop because it was having issues. Now, my monitor fails to send it's correct maximum screen resolution of 1920 x 1080, but rather sends 1024 x 768 thus that's what Windows recognizes.

I believe the issue is with the EDID, because I have installed different drivers and none of them worked so I just switched back to the most recent one.

I saw the use of monitor asset manager on a previous post, so I ran that and received this output. Hopefully it helps.

I appreciate any and all help regarding this matter. I believe my specs are posted on my profile.

FYI, I've tried both a VGA to VGA connection as well as HDMI to HDMI.

VGA is the one that I have gotten to work in 1920 x 1080, however I don't completely remember my exact steps to fixing it. At one point a simple replugging of the VGA cable allowed full 1920 x 1080 and the monitor recognized it.

The VGA connection is the one I prefer to be fixed.

Thanks again. I'm very sorry for the multiple posts.
