If the monitor came with a drivers or profile disk, make sure to use that. Also, make sure the video card can run at that resolution. Check with the system or video card manufacturer.
You may want to post what kind of (a) system (for instance, "HP Pavilion D1321" (to make one up) ) and/or video card (from display properties - "Plug and play monitor on nVidia MX400") as well.

SOURCE: 16:9 resolution problem
You don't specify your machine type, or the operating system, but let's assume a desktop computer and Windows XP...
Was the monitor recognized properly by the video driver?
Go to Display Properties, settings, advanced, monitor and see if Plug and Play monitor is installed. All modern graphics cards talk to the monitor to discover it's capabilities and should adjust the available resolutions so that the monitor's native resolution is available for choosing.
If some other monitor is listed there, change it to Plug and Play monitor. If still having troubles, you can do two things:
- update the video driver for your graphics card
- find the monitor's .inf file (it should be on a CD that comes with the monitor, or can be downloaded from DELL site), and install this instead of the Plug and Play monitor or whatever you have in your monitor setup (as above, go to monitor - properties - update driver).

Windows 7 - Start, Control panel, Adjust screen resolution, Detect, apply OK.
I have a Dell ST2010 and have to do this every powerup as it forgets...
If anyone knows how to fix that I'd be grateful...

You need to set your PC video resolution to this monitor resolution, which is 1920x1080@60hz. You can do it by bootup in safe mode (hit f8 key while booting up), then select boot with VGA, once bootup, set the new resolution 1920x1080@60hz or something lower such as 1280x768 for now, reboot in regular mode, and reset resolution to 1920x1080@60hz. You may have to install driver if the 1920x1080@60hz does not show up in the list.
