Black border around my desktop?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I just recently got this monitor. I like it a lot, the picture looks good etc, however when I hook it through HDMI, and only hdmi, DVI didn't have this problem at all) it has a black border all the way around the screen of black pixels. Just like the image.

How do I fix this? I prefer to run hdmi so I can use the headphone jack on the monitor.

There should be a 'fit' button on your monitor. If that doesn't work, look at the overscan options. thumb.gif

There is a setting in the AMD Catalyst Control Panel under the "My Digital Flat-Panels" and it is called "Picutre Scaling" or something like that. Just mess with the slider in that.

Go into catalyst control center, go to Digital Flatpanel Displays -> Overscan -> Drag it all the way to the right. Should be fixed.

Yup. I've had that problem as well. HDMI = too much hassle. Is there no audio input jack on the monitor? I've got one that does, and it has audio out as well so you can plug in whatever speakers you want.

That helped, thanks. Any idea why it would do that by default?

Because thats the drivers default. If you uninstall the driver and then reinstall it, same will happen.

When you hook up a PC to a TV via HDMI, TVs will usually overscan (the edges of the picture will go off the screen) unless you change it to "PC mode" or 1:1 pixel mapping or something like that, just due to differences in how PCs communicate with monitors compared to how TVs communicate with home theater devices. So when you use HDMI, AMD's software will set underscan by default to compensate for TVs overscanning. Even if it's a monitor on the other end.
