Image too big for my screen.

I've just bought a new Viewsonic VP2650wb (26") for photography use. I have installed all the necessary drivers and adjusted the resolution to the recommended 1920x1200 pixels.
The problem is that the screen image is too wide for the screen and I have to move the curser to the left or right to see what is at the edges. When I do this, the image 'scrolls' to the left or right!
I also keep getting a screen message from the Viewsonic System telling me that my screen is NOT set to the recommended 1920x1200 resolution - it tells me that my current setting is 1600x1200.
The Viewsonic operating system does not seem to have any controls to 'shrink' the image to the monitor size horizontally (you can only move it left or right).
I am using Windows XP Pro, and an ASUS RADEON 7000 VIDEO CARD.
What am I doing wrong? - ANY SUGGESTIONS MOST WELCOME.

Your video card supports 1920x1200 at a refresh rate of 90HZ check the refresh rate and make sure its only 90. You can download the latest drivers for your video card here.
