I just bought an HP 2009m monitor a few days ago. It seems to work fine other than the majority of the websites i visit, they do not fit the screen. I have about 3.5 inches of blank space on each side. I can zoom in and it eventually fits, but big and blurry. I am running mozilla firefox and have windows 7 home. Any ideas as to why so much blank space and how to fix other than zooming in every page?

Anybody? I also have a NVIDIA GeForce 6150SE integrated with a native of 1600x900 native resolution, but the 20" monitor calls for 1600x1200, which i don't have. Anything I can do, or do i have to live with it? My browser fits the screen, but not most websites.

When you are done, then reset the monitor back to the factory defaults.
If you are running Windows 7, go to help and type in calibrate but not before doing the other three suggestions.
I suspect that the monitor .inf file does not have the resolutions needed but the above monitor update might fix the problem.

I tried the monitor update, the video card update, and reset the factory default. I got nothing. I tried the calibrate in the help menu and that's just for colr disply. I tried to add a custom 1600x1200 resolution and it says by display does not support it. Any other ideas?

I'm reading that to, that 1600x900 is the max. I guess i'll just have to get used to it. It just kinda defeats the purpose of having a bigger and wider monitor when the websites don't even fit the screen. My desktop is normal though.
Thanks for the help!

I have a related problem.
I have the HP 2009m. I have a Dell laptop with an nVidia card.
I want the monitor to display at the 1600 x 900 maximum display resolution.
I set it through the nVidia control panel app.
Every time I reboot, the monitor goes back to 1280 x 800.
Any ideas how to make the changes stick?
