It depends on the display drivers. If correctly installed and a bit up to date, you usually have more options. Since it's an HP, I'm just assuming it's correctly installed (if Windows is factory installed or used with original HP media)
Also, in Win8, you will see 4 resolutions (in bold text), but usually there's space inbetween the resolution which you can also select (use mouse to drag carefully, it will show the resolution in lighter grey)!
Please note, EVERY resolution that's NOT the native / or recommended resolution will end up being slightly or very fuzzy.
