I have a Hannspee H229h that I've had for quite some time.  The other day I moved my computer to a new location, and my buddy pointed out I'm using a VGA to DVI connector when the monitor has a HDMI output.  Naturally, I waited 3 weeks and finally got around to changing the cable today, only to run into more issues.

 When I use a DVI to HDMI cable, I can only get up to 1680x1050 anything over that causes my image to shrink about 70% and it gets "fuzzy".  I then tried a straight through HDMI cable, which had the same issue in anything over 1680x1050, but it also cut my screen off around the edges in any resolution.

Any ideas?  I installed the drivers hannspree has on their site, however they were from 2008 and were created for vista.

You tried DVI to DVI? Hanspree has some windows 7 info on their site 

Which upon first glance looks useless.

Yeah most everything on their page appears to be useless.  I've actually been considering accepting the fact that it is in fact just capable of 1680x1050.  The manual shows the settings for 1080i @ 30Hz, however right below that page it says the max resolution the monitor is capable of is 1680x1050.  Although, I could have sworn it was 1920x1080 when I used vga.

 I wasted about 3 hours screwing with it last night, before my wife reminded me I needed to finish rewriting my resume, lol.  I don't recall if I actually have any DVI to DVI cables at the house.  There's a few at work, I might have to borrow one just to check it out.  I'm not too experienced in video inputs/outputs, so I'm leaning more towards the monitor was 1680x1050 the entire time.
