The auto function on the monitor doesn't fix the resolution, it's stuck on 848x480 with no other options. The positioning button on the monitor does nothing to better the screen position.

What do you mean by Dedicated GPU? You mean, another driver for another monitor?

As for the cables, how would this help?

A dedicated GPU is a graphics card that plugs into a pci-e slot and it's only job is to send images to the monitor rather than use the chipset that is in the CPU to drive the monitor.

I think that's my only option. Will have to give that a try

Well, the Mystery is over. It seems that the onboard intel graphics card doesn't handle the second monitor so well so I did as you suggested and raced out and bought a dual graphics card. It works great.

Even better, now I don't have to frisby this monitor off the roof

Thanks for the help.
