Double monitor setup, monitor won't display right resolution

I had some trouble with my monitor and I found in some forum that I could connect a second monitor and change a setting from that one to fix my issue. So I connected a second monitor (my TV :p  ). My initial computer monitor is LG's Flatron e2242 (1080p) and my TV is a TELEFUNKEN TV that says it supports 1080p. So I connected my initial monitor with a DVI-VGA cable (just like before) and my TV with an HDMI cable. So now, my TV is set at 1080p, but my initial monitor is at 1024x768 and the recommended and correct resolution is 1080p, but it doesn't show. When I go to Screen Resolution, I can see the two monitors and I know that I can click on the monitor I want to configure and set it's resolution, but the recommended one just doesn't show! I run Windows 7 64-bit and I have an AMD R9 380 4GB. Even in Speccy, which I use to check the temperature, it identifies the initial LG monitor as Generic Non-PnP Monitor (1280x1024@60Hz). What can I do?

 

In case the problem I had before affects the current setup, this is a link to it:
