Issue playing Full HD on computer

I have a Blu-ray pdrive and I wanted to watch the HD on my monitor at Full HD. The monitor is a Prolite E2403WS, which supports the 1920x1080, and has a DVI and a VGA port. It has an HDMI port. My graphics card is an ASUS EAH5670, which has a DVI an a VGA port. I have both cables connected to the monitor, the DVI using a DVI-HDMI cable.
I'm using Cyberlink PowerDVD 8 to watch an Blue-ray movie but I feel that it's not at full definition. The image doe snot look very good and I fear it's not true-HD.
 Can you tell me what may be wrong here?

Hello there, Did you try using any other Software to play this video. Probably if you are willing to try any other software then you can try with VLC Player (Latest Version) it plays most of the format. this may solve your problem.

Good Day
-> Did you set your video card resolution to 1920x1080 (whats the resolution in use)  ?

-> you are not happy with resolution or contract & brightness ?

Yes, try different player eg.VLC player.

Update your codec

Err, how can I play a Blu-ray with VLC? I've tried with my 300 movie and it gave me an error message in 2 scenarios I tried.
In the first scenario I tried doing a open disk and I got the error message "Cannot open entry. VLC cannot open MRL 'dvd://D:\'.
In the second scenario I've searched for a file 00000.m2ts and tried to play it. By doing this VLC just seems to be waiting to start playing, as the play button shows the option pause.
 Could this have something to do with the fact that I also have also my VGA port connected? I heard something about a protected path being required.

I guess I found a potential problem. According to BDAdvisor my screen is not HDCP compatible.

At this moment all the most recent drivers are there. Same effect though.
