Monitor problems?

I've been using a relatively old monitor (still flat screen though) for a while now and it uses VGA, so I got an adapter that turns it to HDMI. I always has the screen resolution set to 1440 x 900 (on xbox, of course). Recently I got a new monitor that supports HDMI but I haven't gotten the cord for it yet so I'm still using the VGA-HDMI adapter. The new monitor's resolution is 1920 x 1080 but when I set my xbox to 1920 x 1080 the screen goes black and stays like that until it resets back to 1440 x 900. How can I fix this? Could it be the adapter somehow messing it up?

Sorry if this is the wrong section. Let me know if there is anything I need to add.

Thanks in advance!

VGA doesn't allow for high end resolution like HDMI nd new screens offer.. hence why VGA is obsolete.
