Eyefinity Display has a border around it

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
One of my monitors has a border around it when enabling eyefinity. The resolution is correct and it won't let me fit it to fill the screen. I searched around but never found a solution.

Is it your sig rig that is having this problem?

Your sig rig shows GTX470 SLI.  If so, then it is Nvidia Surround (vs AMD's Eyefinity).

 

Anyway, go to the OSD Menu of that problematic monitor and choose Custom Scaling and then Fit to Screen.  If you see black border around four edges, this phenomena is mostly likely 'Underscan'.  And I bet that monitor is connected via HDMI rather than via DVI.

 

If this does not work, provide more details (the brand and model number of your monitors, cables and adapters used, how you connect the monitors).

I am able to get the border off by changing the scaling, but it makes the image not quite as good as the middle one. I didn't have these problems with nvsurround, is there something I'm missing here?

Are you using hdmi with the panel that has the scaling issue? If so swap it to dvi.

My father had a similar issue with his monitor(s) and switching to Dvi fixed it.

Btw, Go Chiefs!

Try Disable Eyefinity and use only the HDMI monitor , then go in Digital Flat panels and in scaling option and move the Overscan slider, then when your display is right while in 1 screen mode , build your eyefinity group.

Or Use 2 dvi + one active display adaptor with DVI

Can you elaborate? If the resolution is set correctly there should be no image quality degredation if you are changing the overscan/underscan settings (not anything else)

The one I'm having the problems with is the dvi. The middle display has kind of blurry text too. The only way I've been able to get it to fit to screen is when I use the scaling on my monitor. The gpu scaling the the ccc doesn't work on that display, it did however work correctly on my right side display.

I've tried using different cables for all the monitors, and to my surprise vga actually looked the same as the other side monitor's dvi. Also, when using only one display and using the primary port by itself the image comes through with a border around it, too.

Well there's the problem, change the underscan/overscan settings, not anything else. Do not touch the scaling settings

First, select the problematic monitor:

Then, drag the bar left and right:

You should be using 1 Mini DisplayPort to DVI Single Link Active Adapter. Or you could be using the one for AMD Eyefinity.

 

Amazon.com: Accell B087B-006B UltraAV Mini DisplayPort to DVI-
