    Sorry, but your link does not work. Is it an address from within your account there?

    Is everything all set in Settings app (Hold WinKey + I) > System > Display?

    It's probably wrongly detected, check resolution and frequency of monitor itself. If it's a brand new monitor, check it's settings on monitor OSD itself, most have an option to automatically adjust to some settings and memory to revert to it when same frequency and resolution signal is sent to it by GPU.

    GPU = Graphic Processing Unit, wherever it is. Actually it's just a processor and could be incorporated on same die as CPU or otherwise but it's still GPU.

    Assuming Intel HD graphics (iGPU) Right click on Desktop > Graphics Properties...

    1) General Settings > Select Display from drop down box > check resolution is 1920 x 1080 and Refresh Rate 60 Hz(or 59 Hz).

    Scaling - You may have to change this though you should be able to use different resolutions for each Display. Though duplicate may just scale up from the Laptop.
    Once you have it right > Apply, you may as well Save the Profile.

    2) Display > Multiple Displays > There you should see your other monitor listed in 2 it should have a name listed.

    This should be repeated in the Windows Project modes, Extend, Duplicate, single screen etc.
    The Manual is here:
    https://www.msi.com/Monitor/support/Optix-G24C
    Set it to something conservative like 1920 x 1080 60 Hz. By going through the menu.
    Mode - standard
    Aspect - Auto or 16:9
    Input - Select HDMI

    My laptop only goes up to 1366 by 768, a long way away from 1080p

    So does my Laptop about 4 years old have a 1366 x 768 internal screen, but you can still use an external 1920 x 1080 monitor on the HDMI output.
    I do use an external 1920 x 1080 Dell monitor, and a 1920 x 1080 Sony TV.

    The external HDMI connection will have a higher spec. You will have to look that up for your particular Laptop.
    Mine states max resolution 2,048 x 1,536 and max refresh rate 100 Hz.

    Both my external displays will scale up a 1366 x 768 resolution to fit full screen, if required, though the Dell does not actually state that in it's manual.

    Will check settings. For some reason my chromebook of the same resolution as my laptop fits the full screen.
