I also run an Envision and I have this problem only if the monitor is
ready after the CPU fires up.  As long as I turn the monitor on for 10
secss. before hitting the on button on the CPU I have ant res. up to
1280 x 1024.  I hit upon the solution by doing a restart and that should
give you the ability to test this also.

to just set it go to System>Admin.>Screens and Graphics and set Plugand
Play at 1024 x 768.
