What happens when you set it to the native resolution of 1680x1050?

Just curious but why are you trying to force a non-native resolution that isn't even the correct aspect ratio?

According to the specs for your monitor it has a native resolution of 1680x1050 and is a 16:10 monitor, and you are trying to run it at a 16:9 resolution of 1280x720.

I guessing Windows doesn't know what monitor you have connected and that it is a wide screen format. You may have to hunt up a driver (inf file) for it.
If not and when you do, if the monitor isn't listed correctly check either Windows Update for a driver for it (a monitor is one of the very few devices I would recommend getting a driver through WU for) or use the one directly from Viewsonic,

ViewSonic - Knowledge Base

they are only showing up to Vista but it should still work in Windows 7.

Just realized that that isn't really a monitor but a TV. How are you connecting to it?

Edit: Found the manual for your TV and if you are connected to it via HDMI then that would be why the resolution and display are wrong. Straight from the manual regarding HDMI,

So if it is connected via HDMI try the VGA connection instead and then you should have the full 1680x1050 resolution available.
