If the above is the expected resolution - then it is a bug en your monitors firmware as info is drawn from the monitor.

There is really only one thing you do - ignore it.

I see, thank you for your response and sorry it took me so long to reply.

Is there any way I could possibly get the sound through my HDMI port to work? I can select the HDMI port in the sound menu but no volume is produced.
