    If you open Devices and Printers from Control Panel (icons view), does it have the correct model for the monitor or just a "Generic .... Monitor" type of name for it.

    In addition, check in your device installation settings to make sure it's set to Yes, do this automatically to hopefully have a driver for the monitor be installed through Windows Update if available that may allow the max resolution.

    It says the correct model number "HP vs17"

    If your device installation settings are set to automatic as well, then I suppose the old VGA monitor may just not be fully supported in Windows 8.
