Screen resolution issue with connected monitor

I recently bought a 19" LED monitor to use with my laptop. The monitor is connected through the HDMI port (on both ends). When I switch on the monitor, the display is in the 14" laptop's screen resolution and not the screen resolution of the monitor. I tried the setting "Auto" on the monitor but it says "Cannot be used; available in D-Sub signals only". What could be the issue here? Any help is appreciated.
