Resolution Question (on 27 inch monitor)

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hello!
i recently bought a Asus-27" IPS LED HD Monitor - Black, Silver-MX279H and the max resolution is 1920x1080. when i have it set to that resolution my whole screen shrinks and there is like a 2inch or more border around the whole screen... why at that size does it not fill the whole screen up? is it supposed to do that or is it a problem? at a lower resolution if does fill it out just everything seems warped at that size. i need help with this cause im already having to return the monitor because of some major light bleeding threw the bottom left corner of the screen just want to know if i should just get a diff monitor all together or stick with this one.

*added note ive looked at other stores for 27 inch monitors set up to see if this is a problem but no stores ive gone to seem to have this size or they just arent hooked up to anything at all... frustrating frown.gif*


thanks for checking out my post.

here is an example of what im talking about:



Edit --- using a BlueRigger High Speed HDMI Cable to connect to a XFX ATI Radeon HD6770

links to those:

Tell folks which cable type are you attempting to use from your video card to the monitor ?

Also what is the make & model number of your PC video card ?

Also the monitor doesn't have a dvi port so cant try a diff cable :/

Try using the dvi to hdmi cable provided, your gpu may only support an older hdmi standard (ei 720p max).

I tried the cable that came with it and still have the problem. the video card supports Max. Resolution: 2560 x 1600 so im sure its not older tech like ya had said.

What specific video card is it?

There's options you can play with in the control panel for the video card that will fix it.

[edit] saw you put it lower in the OP tongue.gif,

It's called "overscan and underscan" in the Catalyst control panel.
