1920x1080 not available in Catalyst

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,

I just put my HD 6950 into a new rig and I'm having some problems. When I am in Windows and using the screen resolution I can change the screen resolution to 1920x1080, but there's a border around the screen (black between monitor bezel and Windows). I went into Catalyst and I didn't even have the option to use 1920x1080. I am using the same monitor I had for my last computer, which was able to do 1920x1080.

Any thoughts on how to fix? Help would be much appreciated.

The black line is also Underscan. It's under one of the monitor properties (though I can't remember off the top of my head specifically which). There will be a bar that's labelled Underscan - Overscan and be in increments of percentile.

This happened to me. First go onto your windows desktop and right click and go onto resolution and change it to 1920 x 1080 which you have probably done already. Then go into catalyst and go into 'my digital flat panels' on the side menu, then go into 'scaling options' and set it to 0%, it should be overscan.

Thanks dom. I'll give that shot when I get back home.

I looked around, and switched the cable from HDMI back to DVI and that fixed the issue.

Smorg - 1920x1080 was displayed, but it had a border around it, maybe 3/4 of an inch around.

1920x1080 isn't considered a desktop resolution.

Find the HDTV tab and select 1080p.

what monitor/tv are you using?

There are plenty of cheap old 1080i displays that have this problem.

Yes, that happens all the time when you connect via HDMI; with Nvidia cards you have to create a custom resolution for the image to fit properly.

If you connect via DVI all those problems go away. And to the poster who said that 1920x1080 isn't considered a desktop resolution, I beg to differ, it is considered a desktop resolution. Many desktop monitors being sold right now, including the affordable Full HD 22' widescreen monitors, are almost all 16:9, which means they are 1920x1080. And Windows works fine with them if you're using DVI. If you're using HDMI, like it happens with TV's, you'll have to make the underscan /overscan adjustments.
