Gigabyte HD 6950 1GB - Edges of Screen are Black

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I just installed a Gigabyte 6950 into my computer and for some reason, the outer 1-2 inches of my screen are black. However, nothing is actually cut off from the display. It is just shrinking it down.

I checked and the drivers are up to date. I also have it set to 1920 x 1080p in Landscape. What is causing it to shrink it down and how do I fix it? It stays that way both on the desktop and if I open a game or application.

Thanks for the help!

Are you connected thru hdmi? If so its the over/under scan feature, ie. set up like a tv. You can adjust that thru catalyst, my dig flat panels, scaling options. Though I'd recommend using dvi instead.

Like he said above > Open Catalyst, drop down graphics and select ‘Desktop & Displays’. Then right click on the small screen at the bottom and click configure. Enable GPU scaling, then click on the ‘Scaling Options’ tab and set underscan to 0%. Click apply. Don’t close the window.
